CRG Scientific Coffee: "Human genome and Architecture"

Barcelona

With a length of around 2 meters, how does the DNA double helix fold so it can fit the 5-8 microns diameter of the cell nucleus? The spactial configuration of DNA makes this possible and biologists study the architecture of the double helix to answer this kind of questions.

At the same time, architects are inspired by the shapes, the organization and the structure of nature to create functional buildings.

In what kind of projects would architects and biologists collaborate? What they can learn from each other?

Come to the CRG scientific Coffee next June 11 with your questions and concerns!

  • Marc A. Marti - ICREA Research Professor , principal investigator of the Structural Genomics group at CRG and CNAG
  • Mike Goodstadt, architect and programmer CNAG and CRG
