Topologically Frustrated Dynamics of Charged Macromolecules in Crowds

Prof. M. Muthukumar

University of Massachusetts, Amherst, USA

Understanding of movements of charged macromolecules in crowded environments remains as a huge challenge due to long-ranged nature of both the topological correlation from connectivity of macromolecules and electrostatic correlation from the charges in the system. Such strongly correlated systems exhibit a variety of rich phenomenology unparalleled in uncharged systems. In particular, the newly discovered topologically frustrated non-diffusive dynamics of charged macromolecules inside hydrogels will be discussed.
