Molecular Perspectives On Protein-Protein Interactions

The conference will bring together scientists from molecular cell biology, biochemistry, structural biology, biophysics and bioinformatics to explore the important field of protein-protein interactions. The ability of proteins to interact fast and with specificity is a basic feature of the complexity of life. The principles governing these interactions are the topic of this conference.
