Crosstalk 3. Like Likes Like
Speaker. Prof. B. V. R. Tata.
Title. Like likes Like: Experiments & Simulations on Charged Colloids
Abstract. Coulomb’s law tells that like charges repel and unlike charges attract. I will convince you by showing my own experimental and simulation results on charged colloids that like-charges attract under certain conditions viz., in the presence of large number of counterions. Direct measurements of pair-potential between like charged colloids have shown existence of long-range attraction in addition to the usual screened Coulomb repulsion. Though counterions are known to mediate the attraction, the exact mechanism of attraction still needs to be modelled and understood.
The prime aim of this talk is to share with you all the excitement in establishing the “Like likes Like” through experiments using home built set-up and own simulation codes.

Crosstalk 5. Designs For Purpose: Nature is a Brilliant Designer!
Speaker. Dr. Padmesh A.
Title: Designs For Purpose: Nature is a Brilliant Designer!
Abstract. The talk will introduce you through different molecular assemblies ( specifically the macromolecules) in living systems, their organisation and functions, giving emphasize on PROTEINS (polypeptides). To conclude, a small polypeptide is investigated to understand its structural preference.
