Conference on the understanding of protein interactions: from molecules to organisms
Despite progress with experimental high-throughput techniques for the analysis of protein-protein interactions, bioinformatics, molecular modeling and simulation can play important roles in determining the stability and the structure of protein complexes, in identifying weak transient interactions, in understanding the role of non-functional interactions in a crowed molecular environment and in analyzing dynamic protein interaction networks.
Molecular biology, biochemistry, genetics, bioinformatics and molecular simulation all have important roles to play in understanding the complex protein networks that populate living matter. These networks in turn rely on protein-protein interactions that are characterized by structures, stabilities and lifetimes that vary over wide ranges and take place in a complex, heterogeneous and crowed environment.
The aim of the meeting is to provide an overview of protein-protein interactions, covering a range of scales: from physico-chemical analysis to prediction, from binary complexes to large assemblies, from cellular organization to the comparison of different organisms and from function to dysfunction and potential therapies.
Registration is free, but mandatory. Since we can only accept 100 participants, we encourage you to register early. Registration will close on March 20th.
