High-Throughput Structural Biology
joint with Structural Biology of Cellular Processes: From Atoms to Cells
Organizer(s): Ian A. Wilson, Aled M. Edwards, Tracy M. Handel and Andrej SaliDate: January 22 - 27, 2012
Location: Keystone Resort, Keystone, CO, USA
Structural biology continues to be one of the most prolific and informative ways to make biological and biomedical discoveries, and provides fundamental molecular insights into biological systems. The rapidly expanding numbers of sequenced genomes is providing structural biologists with a wealth of new opportunities and challenges to explore the enormous diversity of biological macromolecules and their relationships to function, evolution and disease. The goal of this meeting is to explore current advances and frontiers in structural biology and illustrate how high-throughput approaches in X-Ray Crystallography and NMR – in combination with hybrid methods using computational and other biophysical techniques (including CryoEM, Xray and Electron Tomography, SAXS, Mass Spectometry, Proteomics) – can be used to tackle topical and challenging problems in molecular, cellular and chemical biology. This symposium will focus on the variety of approaches and methodologies that are available to both structural biologists and biologists for investigation of biological systems and their component macromolecules and complexes. Two open debates will address topical issues of great relevance to the field. The attendees will also have an opportunity to broaden their appreciation of the complex biological systems that can benefit from these current advances in structural biology via the sister meeting on Structural Biology of Cellular Processes: From Atoms to Cells, which will share a keynote address and two plenary sessions with this meeting.
