Significance of Knotted Structures for Function of Proteins and Nucleic Acids
September 17-21, 2014
University of Warsaw
The Biophysical Society is organizing a meeting that will be hosted by the University of Warsaw on the significance of knotted structures for functions of proteins and nucleic acids. Attracting both experimentalists and theoreticians in the fields of biophysics, biology, and mathematics, this meeting will explore topics related to knotting, linking, and general entanglement in proteins and nucleic acids, and their relationship to folding and function. The focus will be on using physical principles to understand how nature controls tangling and untangling in both proteins and nucleic acids, focusing on understanding the consequences for function of those biomolecules.
Submit an Abstract and register before the deadlines.
Abstract Submission Deadline: May 12, 2014
Registration Deadline: June 23, 2014
