Study the interactions of antimicrobial, fusion and amyloidic peptides with membranes, Further develop the methodology for the prediction of 3D-structures of TM proteins and use it to obtain structures of selected proteins, such as human and eukaryotic Na+/H+ antiporters and copper transporters, as well as EmrE in its apo-form, Prediction of function both from experimentally determined 3D-structures and from model structures of proteins.
