Event Name

5th International Symposium on Diffraction Structural Biology (ISDSB2016)

Start Date 7th Aug 2016
End Date 10th Aug 2016

This symposium will report on the latest discoveries in structural biology using X-ray, neutron, and electron diffraction, and complementary techniques such as small-angle scattering, nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy, electron microscopy, and advanced computational approaches. Scientific insights at the molecular level allow structure guided drug discovery and protein engineering for improved biocatalysis. This basic research is important for supporting applications in the pharmaceutical industry and for new, sustainable, and environmentally friendly approaches to the production of chemical reagents and biofuels.

Session topics include:

  • Bioenergy Drug Design
  • Enzyme Mechanism and Allostery
  • Macromolecular Complexes
  • Membranes
  • Membrane Proteins
  • New Instruments and Methods
  • Sources and Facilities

The Symposium will be accompanied by two optional 1-day workshops on August 6, focused on Neutron Protein Crystallography and on Small-Angle Scattering, respectively.
