5th Murnau Conference on Structural Biology

10 Sep 2014 - 13 Sep 2014 - Murnau am Staffelsee, Germany

Bookmark and Share

The Murnau Conference on Structural Biology encompasses the current areas of experimental structural biology, in particular Electron Microscopy, Nuclear Magnetic Resonance and X-ray Crystallography. We focus on molecular questions, the properties of biological macromolecues and their interaction in the complex environment of a living organism. The bi-annual study group meeting in Murnau is set to provide a forum to discuss the latest advances in the field.

The conference will cover the following topics, each session will involve 2-3 invited keynote lectures. Session lectures will be partly selected from submitted abstracts: 

Session 1 - Intracellular Sensors and Switches

Session 2 - Methods in Structural Biology

Session 3 - Signalling Across Membranes

Session 4 - New Developments in Structural Biology

Session 5 - Quality Control and Damage Response
