Lockhart Lab is an independent research group spearheaded by chief scientist Dr. Christopher 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.

Dr. Lockhart 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.

Learn the basics of the Shrake-Rupley algorithm for computing accessible surface area and how to use LLTK to accomplish this task.
