International Conference on Structural Genomics 2013 - Structural Life Science

29 Jul 2013 - 01 Aug 2013 - Sapporo, Hokkaido, Japan



Bookmark and Share


ICSG2013-SLS is intended to provide an overview for the most recent developments in Structural Genomics and its impact on research in biology, medicine and disease, and to foster international collaboration among researchers regardless of the boarders.

The scientific topics covered in ICSG2013-SLS include wider life science research fields with particular attentions to drug discovery (small molecules and biopharmaceuticals), biotechnology and industrial issues while keeping its strength in the highthroughput technologies and integration of hybrid methods. These technologies are now leading to the new field of “Structural Life Science”.

ICSG2-13-SLS is partially supported by the Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research on Innovative Areas; “Structural Cell Biology”, “Intrinsically Disordered Protein” and “Transient Macromolecular Complexes”, from Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) .

In order to widen the opportunity to young and enthusiastic fellows to study more, we organize several satellite workshops before the ICSG2013- SLS. The topics will include “Small molecule screening”, “Automation of X-ray Structure Determination”, “Cell-free Protein Production”, “ Eukaryote expression”, “Automated NMR methods”, “Interaction analyses" and "Bioinformatics”. We hope you also find the satellite workshops are informative and productive.
