Scientific Topics

Registration for the conference will commence at 09:00 on Sunday, June 7, 2015, and the Opening Ceremony/first session will commence at 17:30.

The scientific topics to be covered in ICSG 2015 include:

*   Deep sequencing for modeling and refinement of macromolecular structures
*   Membrane protein structure and function using complementary methods
*   Technological advances in XFEL, Cryo-EM, NMR, SAXS, MS, MX and macromolecular complexes
*   Combining low and high resolution data and modeling for structural biology
*   Synergistic use of 3D structures and deep sequencing to realize personalized medicine
*   Protein design and deep sequencing
*   Cancer, antibiotic resistance and drug discovery

Six Pre-Conference Workshops will be held on Sunday, June 7, from 09:00 until 15:00:

*   Cryo-EM developments for structural biology [Sponsored by FEI]
*   Approaches to the translation of deep sequencing data into three-dimensions [Sponsored by Instruct]
*   PHENIX: Automated determination of molecular structures [Tom Terwilliger & Pavel Afonine]
*   HKL3000: From X-ray diffraction images to structure determination in minutes [Wladek Minor]
*   Protein expression and characterization workshop [Tamar Unger & Yoav Peleg]
*   Proteopedia: A Scientific Wiki Bridging the Rift Between 3D Structure & Function [Jaime Prilusky & Joel L. Sussman]


The Conference will end on Thursday, June 11, 2015, at 13:00.
