- Automated Structure Determination Platform
ASDP web site provides a wide range of resources and software in structural biology and structural genomics. These include links to other structural genomics web sites, a great number of structural databases, and widely used crystallography (both X-ray and Cryo-EM) software including data collection, phasing and modeling. Tutorials, libraries, benchmarks and documantations are also included. The web site also provides a access to the server (platform) for high-throughput protein structure determination on-line.

Low Dose Radiation Research
The DOE Low Dose Radiation Research Program is funding basic research to determine the responses induced by radiation exposures at doses of 10cGy and below. The research is international in nature and will provide a scientific underpinning for future radiation protection standards. Currently about 60% of the projects are funded through Universities and 30% through DOE National Laboratories. The funding is focused to determine the mechanistic basis for the interaction of low doses of radiation with biological systems. These mechanistic studies are focused on DNA damage and repair, endogenous vs. radiation-induced oxidative damage, adaptive responses, bystander effects, genomic instability and genetic susceptibility. The research is conducted at all levels of biological organization from molecular to organism. Detailed information is available on this Website on the individual projects funded, abstracts of past research, publications that have resulted to date from this research and past and future directions of the Program. To ensure that the data are carefully and appropriately evaluated, the Program is also funding projects on mathematical modeling. These projects help identify research needs and integrate the basic data into useful models of radiation cancer risks. In the future, the data from the DOE Low Dose Radiation Research Program will support molecular and genetic epidemiology, generate biologically-based risk models and help define the role that individual genetic susceptibility play in radiation-induced cancer risk. Such research will help insure that the standards are adequate and appropriate.
Center for Biophysics & Computational Biology
Graduate level (PhD) program at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. The Center for Biophysics and Computational Biology serves as a gateway into biology for students who have studied in physical and computer sciences. Our mission is to train students who can provide a dynamic interaction between theory and experiment that will elucidate the physical basis of biological phenomena.
The Society promotes scientific study of the interaction of electromagnetic energy and acoustic energy with biological systems.
