    Abstract : Using Critical Discourse Analysis (CDA), this study seeks to illustrate how Donald Trump’s Inauguration Address incorporates elements of power which are embedded in various forms of American exceptionalism.

  5. 5. Macromolecular Crowding as a Determinant of Protein Viability -- a Lattice Model Study

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Beräkningsbiologi och biologisk fysik

    Author : Daniel Nilsson; [2017]
    Keywords : Protein folding; Macromolecular crowding; HP model; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : We study the effects of macromolecular crowding with interacting crowders in the simple HP-model of protein folding, by performing Monte Carlo simulations of a single flexible HP protein in the presence of folded rigid crowders. In contrast to the well-known stabilization of steric crowders, we find that interacting crowders usually destabilize the test protein, often significantly so. READ MORE
