Frontiers of Structural Biology
joint with Structural Genomics and its Applications to Chemistry, Biology and Medicine
Organizer(s): Wolfgang P. Baumeister, Elena Conti and Gerhard Wagner
Date: January 06 - 11, 2008
Location: Sheraton Steamboat Resort, Steamboat Springs, CO, USA
Supported by the Director's Fund
Summary of Meeting:
Single proteins can catalyze biochemical reactions, but higher cellular functions depend on carefully orchestrated protein interactions. This poses the challenge for structural biology to develop strategies for studying large complexes and supramolecular assemblages (‘functional modules’). Moreover, to understand function we must study the dynamics of macromolecular systems on different time and length scales, or at least we must try to obtain snapshots of key intermediate states. These trends are clearly reflected by the provisional program for 'Frontiers in Structural Biology'. Structural biology will increasingly rely on hybrid approaches combining high-resolution structures of molecular components with lower resolution structures of larger assemblages – from complexes to organelles and even whole cells.
