Why I choose ecology to study in grad school?

At this point, after searching high and low for the right field to study in grad school, I believe system ecology is the one that suits me most, because of the following reasons: Visualization I’ve always been amazed by how visualizations help us to get the theme of the work quicker and deeper. For example, in quantum field theory; Feynman […]

Compare the electrostatic energy between the mutants of HIV-1 protease when binding to lopinavir

Abstract: Electrostatic interaction plays an important role in the binding of HIV-1 protease and ligand. Understanding the role of this interaction may assist designing better drugs targeting on HIV/AIDS disease. In this work, we have applied the Poisson – Boltzmann method to calculate the binding electrostatic energy between HIV-1 protease and lopinavir. The results imply that the inhibitor binds stronger […]

A highly efficient GRE Anki deck to learn

OK, now back to the point. I’m studying GRE by using Anki, and while there are numerous already built decks, the process of my learning was not satisfy me (or was I expecting too high?). There were a lot of cards that becoming leeches (a leech card is a card that I keep forgetting, and will be buried automatically by […]
