Time Resolved Structural Biology – Seeing the structure of motions

Event Dates: 2020-11-23 to 2020-11-25   

Time Resolved Structural Biology – Seeing the structure of motions

The workshop in Time Resolved Structural Biology organized by LINXS will be held as an online workshop November 23-25, 2020, each day there will be a session between 13h and 18h (CET; Central European Time). We have opened up the workshop for a larger number of participants so we welcome new registrations!

We welcome abstracts for posters and contributed talks (deadline November 1). A preliminary schedule can be found on the website but will be finalized when contributed talks have been confirmed.

The workshop will cover different aspects of studying the molecular structure of biological macromolecules using time-resolved experimental techniques or computational methods – What can we learn? What method is best for a certain question and how do they complement each other? The workshop aims to broaden concepts of time-resolved structural biology and it will encourage discussion between the participants.
