Dynamics within and between proteins


Aug 31, 2011 - Sep 2, 2011 | Colchester, United Kingdom

Dynamics within and between proteins

A Biochemical Society Focused Meeting
Starts on 31/08/2011
Ends on 02/09/2011
Category Life Sciences
Location University of Essex, UK

Dynamics at the macroscopic level is concerned with how proteins move. There are many examples ranging from motors in muscle contraction to proteins that search DNA for their targets. From ensemble studies to single molecules there have been considerable advances in our understanding of how proteins move and respond to forces placed on them. 

The aim of this meeting is to showcase the leading research in protein structure and dynamics at both the macro- and microscopic levels.

Topics
• Folding, misfolding and design 
• G-protein coupled receptors: structure and activation 
• Probing dynamic states of proteins and protein complexes through NMR spectroscopy 
• Motor protein dynamics: a single molecule view 

Abstract submission deadline: 29 June 2011
Earlybird registration deadline: 31 July 2011

Proceedings (invited speakers) will be published in Biochemical Society Transactions

Oral communication slots are available at this meeting. All attendees, particularly researchers in the early stages of their career, are invited to submit a poster abstract for consideration as an oral communication.

Student Bursaries are available for this meeting.

A Biochemical Society Centenary Poster Prize and a British Biophysical Society Poster Prize of £200 each will be awarded at this meeting.

Organisers:
Jody Mason (University of Essex, United Kingdom)
Phil Reeves (University of Essex, United Kingdom)
Jon Worrall (University of Essex, United Kingdom)
Neil Kad (University of Essex, United Kingdom)
Christopher Cooper (University of Essex, United Kingdom)
