Protein and RNA Structure Prediction Conference

01 Dec 2013 - 05 Dec 2013 - Xcaret, Mexico



Bookmark and Share


The purpose of the Zing Conference on Protein and RNA Structure Prediction is to bring together eminent scholars with expertise in various fields of computational modeling and prediction of structure, as well as experimentalists interested in these subjects. The scope of the proposed Zing Conference will be much broader than Critical Assessment of Techniques for Protein Structure Prediction (CASP) meetings, which focus mostly on the analysis of the results of the CASP competition. Since computational prediction methods continuously improve and evolve towards prediction of structure of more and more complicated biological objects our conference will cover also related topics, such prediction of structure of protein complexes, protein docking; prediction of intrinsically disordered regions in proteins, RNA structure prediction and modeling of RNA-protein assemblages. New methodologies for protein structure and function prediction will be discussed, such as physics-based approaches to the structure prediction, structural flexibility models, and development of new improved coarse-grained potentials.
