INTEGRATIVE APPROACH FOR EXPLORATION AND CREATION OF DYNAMICAL ORDERING OF BIOMOLECULAR SYSTEMS
Living systems are characterized as dynamic processes of assembly and disassembly of various biomolecules that are self-organized, interacting with the external environment. The omics-based approaches developed in recent decades have provided comprehensive information regarding biomolecules as parts of living organisms. However, fundamental questions remain unsolved as to how these biomolecules are ordered autonomously to form flexible and robust systems.
Our multidisciplinary research area, including fields of chemistry, physics, and biology, aims to elucidate the mechanisms underlying the dynamic ordering of biomolecules that have internal complexities for the creation of integrated functions.
Integration of versatility of the frontier research groups is one of the big advantages of our project “Dynamical ordering of biomolecular systems for creation of integrated functions”. We reaped this great benefit during the last years and have been enjoying the stimulating collaborative environments. In this presentation, I will summarize our integrative approaches to a variety of biomolecular systems including the circadian clock system and the proteasome assembly system, by employing multilateral biophysical techniques. We also create cyborg supramolecular systems by hybridizing biomolecules and self-assembled organic complexes.
