Non-covalent Interactions in Chemistry and Biology, Cambridge, UK
Event Sep 15
Non covalent interactions are essentially the basis of the order necessary for biological function and are vital for maintaining the folded structure of proteins, the double helix and for numerous recognition processes. This conference will consider, from various perspectives, questions pertaining to the nature of non covalent interactions. Specifically how non covalent interactions have been exploited by evolution for example in the sophistication of enzymes and the fine tuning of the interactions necessary for regulating macromolecular machines.
