Conference: Protein Signaling - in space and time
This conferences aims to provide a forum for researchers, including molecular biologists, biochemists, geneticists, computational biologists, and clinicians to share their latest findings in protein design, signaling, and genome maintenance. The goal of the meeting is to bridge fundamental discoveries to clinical-relevant applications and inspire new collaborations and partnerships to advance our understanding of protein-driven mechanisms in development and disease. Our conferences has no application fees - registration is free.Read more
Advances in the understanding of protein structure, function, and signaling have revolutionized our understanding of biological systems. Protein signaling is critical to control gene expression, genome integrity and cell fate decisions, and is dynamically regulated by a wealth of dynamic post-translational modifications (PTMs).
The ability to decipher specific protein functions and their PTMs has vast implications for medicine, with most therapeutic drugs targeted against proteins, or are proteins themselves. Thus, protein-related developments holds the promise to revolutionize our understanding of biological systems. This conference will bring together world-leading researchers in the interdisciplinary fields of protein technologies, signaling, design, network biology and structural biology maintenance to explore the latest developments in these fields.
Protein structure and protein complexes are dynamic and can change over time or in different environments. The conference will have a strong focus on leading protein technologies and genome architecture, and how they change over time or in different conditions. Furthermore, we will investigate the topic from different angles; at the single particle and at the single cell level to genome- and proteome wide analysis. This will allow for unprecedented insights into the behavior of individual cells and molecules. This will include discussions of emerging technologies for studying protein-protein interactions, post-translational modifications, and the dynamics of protein complexes. The meeting will also feature in-depth discussions of proteomics, the study of the complete set of proteins present in a cell, tissue, or organism. This field has seen tremendous growth in recent years, driven by the development of high-throughput mass spectrometry and bioinformatics tools for data analysis. Another important topic will be nuclear architecture and chromatin organization and imaging techniques to visualize the three-dimensional structure of chromatin. Finally, computational biology will also be a focus of the conference, seeking to integrate information from multiple levels of biological organization to gain an understanding of complex diseases such as cancer.
We aim for the conference to provide a forum for researchers, including molecular biologists, biochemists, geneticists, computational biologists, and clinicians to share their latest findings in protein design, signaling, and genome maintenance. The goal of the meeting is to bridge fundamental discoveries to clinical-relevant applications and inspire new collaborations and partnerships to advance our understanding of protein-driven mechanisms in development and disease.
The programme starts at 5:30 pm on Monday, 27 November 2023 and ends Friday, 1 December 2023 with checkout at 9:00 am.
How to apply?
