Proteins are the machines within our cells (and sometimes outside). Many proteins, or enzymes, work by having a pocket specific to one specific molecule, called the binding pocket. Different proteins do different things once that molecule binds. Studying the "pocket" is often a first step in creating targeted drugs. Dr. Chen at Lehigh Is using computational methods to map and compare the binding pockets of different proteins.
