Biophysics and Biochemical Screening
Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry group in SGC/TDI Oxford led by Oleg Fedorov, specialises on chemical probe discovery projects, especially in the field of Epigenetics. Main target areas are currently acetyl-lysine reader domains and histone demethylases. The group supports the wide variety of screening assays developed for most of the targets. The in-depth characterization of chemical probe candidates relies on a series of biophysical techniques established for accurate measurements of thermodynamics of and kinetic parameters of binding. The group also supports and extend the focused libraries of small molecular weight ligands for proteins of interest.
