Lockhart Lab is an independent research group spearheaded by chief scientist Chris Lockhart. We seek to address biochemical questions of medical importance using computational methods. Our work primarily focuses on use of molecular dynamics to study the thermodynamics and kinetics of biomolecules. Partly, we endeavor to explore novel methodologies, focusing on machine learning, that will improve the study of biomolecular mechanisms and enhance the field of computational science.
Chris initially founded this lab to pursue his own extracurricular research interests. Our current work is LLTK, a structural analysis toolkit (in development). This toolkit provides functionality for processing and analyzing simulation data. The code and its documentation are available via Github.
