We will investigate how ideas coming from the energy landscape for protein folding can now be used to understand genome folding and function.These applications of theoretical physics in biology will contribute to fortify this new interdisciplinary at ICTP-SAIFR. aplicações de física teórica na biologia vão contribuir para a ampliação desta área interedisciplinar no ICTP-SAIFR.
