EMBO | EMBL 2011 Symposia : Structure and Dynamics of Protein Networks

13 - 16 October 2011 - EMBL Advanced Training Centre, Heidelberg, Germany

March 29, 2011

The general aim of the symposium is to explore the possible synergisms and cross-talk between the large-scale and classical approaches to biological networks.
Understanding the molecular mechanisms of biological function largely relies on the systematic charting of the dynamics interactions taking place between the various components of living cells. Recent “OMICS” technologies contribute large biological networks covering entire proteomes. These networks are generally static as they fail to capture spatial and temporal dimensions that represent essential properties of living systems. Mechanistic and dynamic insights often come from focused smaller-scale approaches, such as those used in structural biology, biophysics or cell biology.
