    The Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biophysics

    The Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biophysics at the Washington University is dedicated to the investigation of the complex relationships between macromolecules. Studies of protein-protein interactions, protein-nucleic (either DNA or RNA) acid interactions and protein-ligand interactions that control biological processes such as transcription, signal processing, protein structural changes, protein folding as well as other cellular functions represent current areas of interest.

    The Thermosynthesis Home Page

    Thermosynthesis theory shows how organisms can use or may have used thermal cycling as an energy source-thermal cycling occurring especially in volcanic hot springs. Thermosynthesis could stepwise evolve towards photosynthesis. It may still occur in convecting aquifers on Earth.
