Proteins accomplish many vital tasks in biological systems and organisms. They are not only building blocks of cells, but can also act as signalling substances and chemical tools. In order to understand the processes in cellular tissue and other biological systems, scientists need to know the interactions of proteins with other substances and with water. Researchers from Tübingen have recently discovered some fundamental properties of proteins.
