Research Description
Using an integrative approach, the Dieckmann Lab utilizes protein design to create simple model systems. These systems provide insights into the functioning of more complex biological systems, or yield new bio/nano hybrid materials. Projects include:

  • Bionanotechnology: designed protein motifs for the noncovalent functionalization of carbon nanotubes
  • Thiolate-rich Zn(II) sites and alkyl transfer: how does protein environment control Zn(II) reactivity
  • DNA-binding domains: probing the molecular basis of gene regulation and DNA repair
