Biological Diffusion and Brownian Dynamics Brainstorm 5 (BDBDB5) will provide a forum for presentations and informal discussions about the current state of experimental and theoretical studies of biological diffusion, with a focus on the Brownian Dynamics method for simulating biological macromolecules.

Biophysical Society of Canada (BSC) Faculty Sessions for 6th Annual Biophysics Week

3/22/2021 - 3/26/2021
Biophysical Society of Canada

The Biophysical Society of Canada is pleased to be organizing Virtual Meet Faculty Sessions within the framework of the sixth annual Biophysics Week from March 22 - 26, 2021. Biophysics Week is a global effort aimed at encouraging connections within the biophysics community while raising awareness of the field and its impact among the general public, policy makers, students, and scientists.

The goal of these sessions is to provide undergraduate and graduate students with a chance to virtually meet and interact with faculty members of he Biophysical Society of Canada, inquire about their research, and learn more about potential training opportunities in the field of biophysics.

Biophysical Society of Japan - Proteins in Motion! Poster Share

3/22/2021 - 3/26/2021
Biophysical Society of Japan
Miyagi, Japan

Our body consists of many different organs, such as the muscle, heart, eye, and brain. Each organ is made up of many cells. Looking inside a magnified cell, you can see it is full of tiny proteins with sizes of only one hundred-thousandth of a millimeter.

Proteins within our body are dynamic and constantly moving as they carry out specific functions. For example, some proteins rotate to create energy, others walk along filaments to deliver cargo, or dock to transfer materials from the extracellular world. Motion of the proteins is essential to carry out cellular processes needed for life!

Share this poster with your colleagues, students, and friends.

Biophysics Week on Practical Work

3/22/2021 - 3/26/2021
Universitylef of Chlef, Algeria
Ouled Fares, Algeria

This week provides the student with a profile of rich training in a new discipline among the life sciences in both laboratories and ground. It aims to open up prospects for training and job profiles in which the knowledge of biological and physical problems or biophysics is important. This discipline of biophysics aims at a temporal formation having a broad spectrum of knowledge and bioscience and science skills physical allowing an opening towards sectors very varied: biomedical, pharmaceutical, biotechnology, industrial, etc. This practical work plays an effective role in discovery of the experimental aspect of biophysics fundamental.

Biophysics, Viruses, and Vaccines

University of Vic - Torre dels Frares
Vic, Spain

Mini congress. The purpose of this event is to have students presenting examples of the role of biophysics in understanding the underlying mechanisms a viral infections, from their diffusion until the development of vaccines and therapies.

Correlating Analytical Microscopy (AFM, EM & EDS) for Biological Research

Oxford Instruments Demo Facility
High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, United Kingdom

Correlative microscopy enables biologists to investigate features of their sample using the strengths of different types of microscope. Usually, correlative microscopy in biology features light microscopy, electron microscopy and sometimes x-ray microscopy. It is now also possible to correlate materials properties, using atomic force microscopy, and chemical analysis, using energy dispersive x-ray spectrometry (EDS/EDX) with more traditional forms of microscopy, extending out understanding of the chemical and physical properties of our specimens.   Our webinar will introduce AFM and EDS applications within biological research and demonstrate the acquisition of correlative data, including the challenges surrounding sample preparation and finding the same region on the samples. We will then explore how to analyse quantitative measurements and images acquired from correlative microscopy. The webinar will be followed by a question-and-answer session with the presenters.      

Live Experiment of Protein Folding & Conformational Changes Using Optical Tweezers and Microscopy

Amsterdam, Netherlands

Have you ever wondered how you can visualize real-time conformational changes of your protein? In this labinar, one of LUMICKS' application scientists will perform a hands-on experiment for you using C-Trap Optical Tweezers ― Fluorescence & Label-free Microscopy.

You will see firsthand what our platform can do to start answering your biological questions right away. After the labinar, we'll have a live Q&A session where our application scientist will answer your questions.
