The conference aims to gather scientists from molecular cell biology, biochemistry, structural biology, biophysics and bioinformatics to explore the important field of protein-protein interactions.
The particular focus of the conference will be on molecular aspects of protein-protein interactions. Topics will include theory & computation, thermodynamics & kinetics, intrinsically unstructured protein complexes, PPI in disease & drug development, protein interaction networks, signaling complexes, membrane protein complexes, emerging & single molecule techniques, evolution & design as well as large multi-protein complexes. Fundamental and applied problems in these fields will be discussed from an interdisciplinary perspective.
PPI2017 will be preceded by the "iNEXT workshop on macromolecular interactions”, for training existing and potential users of iNEXT facilities in analyzing macromolecular interactions.
In addition to invited speakers, oral presentations will be chosen from submitted abstracts
