International Conference on Structural Genomics

Conference
Date: 10-May-2011 2:00 CEST to -

Contact: Claudia Alen Amaro

This meeting is designed to serve as a forum to discuss the most recent developments in Structural Genomics and its impact on research in biology, medicine and disease.

Topics of discussion will include:

  • Impact of Structural Genomics on Infectious Disease Research
  • Advances in protein expression, purification, crystallography and NMR
  • Structure Enabled Systems Biology and Signaling Networks
  • Structural Genomics of Integral Membrane Proteins
  • Computational and Integrated Approaches to Structure and Function
  • Hybrid Methods and Macromolecular Complexes
  • Structural Genomics and Drug Discovery

In addition to the main ICSG meeting, there will be a whole day of concurrent satellite workshops (May 10, 2011) that are free for ICSG 2011 registrants, including:

Small Molecule Screening Workshop- This hands-on workshop will allow participants to screen a protein of their choice for binding of selected compounds, using thermal shift assays.
iSee: Interactive 3D Documents for the Dissemination of Structural Biology – This hands-on workshop will familiarize participants with the iSEE 3D graphical software which allows interactive viewing of 3 dimensional molecular structures and is currently used by journals such as Nature Structural & Molecular Biology and PLoS Biology and PLoS ONE
Eukaryotic Gene Expression Systems Workshop - This workshop will provide participants with a detailed understanding of the state-of-the-art for production of eukaryotic proteins destined for biochemical, biophysical, and structural analyses..
Workshop on NMR Methods for Structural Biology- This workshop will survey technologies for structure/function investigations of proteins, developed in (or in collaboration with) structural genomics projects, that are ready for widespread use by the wider biological community.
Phenix Crystallography Software Workshop – This workshop will introduce the PHENIX software for macromolecular structure determination and the core algorithms that it uses. It will provide hands-on tutorials for crystallographers of all levels.
 
The workshop registration deadline is Monday April 11, 2011 at 11:59 pm EST
