Weak Protein-Ligand Interactions: New Horizons in Biophysics and Cell Biology

October 14–19, 2012, Beijing

The Biophysical Society and the Institute of Biophysics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences are co-sponsoring a meeting on Weak Protein-Ligand Interactions: New Horizons in Biophysics and Cell Biology, in Beijing, October 14–19, 2012.

The meeting will emphasize technological advances and applications in studying weak protein-ligand interactions using a variety of cutting-edge biophysical, biochemical, and cell biology techniques. These techniques will include:

  • NMR spectroscopy
  • X-ray crystallography
  • Co-immunoprecipitation and pull-down
  • In vivo fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET)
  • Yeast hybrid and phage display
  • Chemical crosslinking
  • Mass spectroscopy
  • Small angle light scattering
  • Computational docking
  • Single molecule fluorescence spectroscopy
  • Atomic force microscopy
  • Magnetic tweezers
  • Surface plasmon resonance
  • Isothermal calorimetry titration

The meeting’s organizing committee members are Jun Qin, Cleveland Clinic; Zihe Rao, Nankai University, China; Ruiming Xu, Institute of Biophysics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences; and Rongguang Zhang, Institute of Biophysics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences.
