Structural Genomics and its Applications to Chemistry, Biology and Medicine
joint with Frontiers of Structural Biology
Organizer(s): Ian A. Wilson, Janet M. Thornton and Kurt Wüthrich
Date: January 06 - 11, 2008
Location: Sheraton Steamboat Resort, Steamboat Springs, CO, USA
Supported by the Director's Fund
Summary of Meeting:
Structural genomics has already significantly advanced high throughput (HT) technologies, including automation and robotics, for cloning, expression, purification and determination of protein structures by crystallography and NMR. These methodologies are now being applied to the field of proteomics to accelerate our understanding of the ever expanding protein universe (fold and function) as a result of the explosion in gene sequencing and to tackle challenging targets, such as membrane proteins, macromolecular complexes and eukaryotic targets. This meeting will focus on current approaches in structural genomics and on how structural genomics tools can be applied to topical problems in structural, molecular, cell and chemical biology not only within large consortia, but also for single investigator laboratories and smaller scale projects. In this way, the enormous complexity presented by even single proteomes – such as human, mouse, as well as human pathogens – can be tackled so as to significantly impact chemical, biological and biomedical research.
