In January 2012 I moved to Arizona State University to set up my own lab in the Center for Biological Physics in the Department of Physics. The pages at SBCB are retained for historic interest. For source code you are encouraged to follow the links at orbeckst.github.com.
Until the end of 2011 I worked as a postdoctoral research associate in the Structural Bioinformatics and Computational Biochemistry Unit and I am a Supernumerary Fellow at Merton College, Oxford; I am also collaborating with Tom Woolf's lab at the Department of Physiology, Johns Hopkins University, School of Medicine in Baltimore, USA.
In my current research I am using computer simulations in order to understand how proteins—the molecular machines of the cell—function. In particular, I focus on

DISCLAIMER: If you searched for my name on the internet you will find many pages that relate to my work or what I do. Sadly, there is one namesake who holds very different opinions from my own, and which I perceive as xenophobic or outright racist. This person publishes articles on the web (mostly in German) that one could mistake to be mine if one only looked at the name. They are not and I do not condone them. I will not link to any of those articles to avoid them gaining additional popularity. This unhappy situation arises because my name is relatively rare and aggregation of search results can give the impression that any page with the name 'Oliver Beckstein' is indeed by the same person.
So are the perils of the internet.Last modified: 2012-07-14 by Oliver Beckstein
