Mittal Group @ Texas A&M

Molecular Organization in Biology and Materials

Welcome to the Mittal group at Texas A&M University. We work on diverse research problems that include theory and simulation of liquid-liquid phase separation of disordered proteins, protein-protein interactions, DNA-mediated assembly for material design, nucleic acid behavior at bio-nano interfaces, and macromolecular crowding.
