Dear Colleagues,

We hope that you are planning to join us in Toronto, Canada for the
International Conference on Structural Genomics 2011 which will be held on
May 10-14, 2011.  We have an excellent scientific program prepared which
includes both oral and poster presentations (please see:
http://www.icsg2011.org/scientific_program.php ). Participants will also
enjoy the fabulous view of the city of Toronto during the banquet to be
held at the revolving 360 Restaurant at the top of the CN tower. An
optional post-conference tour to Niagara Falls will also be available. We
invite you to register on line by April 15, 2011 at 11:59 pm EST.  A
limited number of late poster abstracts will be accepted until April 12,
2011 at 11:59 pm EST

In addition to the main ICSG meeting, there will be a whole day of
concurrent satellite workshops (May 10, 2011) that are free for ICSG 2011
registrants, including:

Small Molecule Screening Workshop- This hands-on workshop will allow
participants to screen a protein of their choice for binding of selected
compounds, using thermal shift assays.

iSee: Interactive 3D Documents for the Dissemination of Structural Biology
- This hands-on workshop will familiarize participants with the iSEE 3D
graphical software which allows interactive viewing of 3 dimensional
molecular structures and is currently used by journals such as Nature
Structural & Molecular Biology and PLoS Biology and PLoS ONE
Eukaryotic Gene Expression Systems Workshop - This workshop will provide
participants with a detailed understanding of the state-of-the-art for
production of eukaryotic proteins destined for biochemical, biophysical,
and structural analyses..

Workshop on NMR Methods for Structural Biology- This workshop will survey
technologies for structure/function investigations of proteins, developed
in (or in collaboration with) structural genomics projects, that are ready
for widespread use by the wider biological community.

Phenix Crystallography Software Workshop - This workshop will introduce
the PHENIX software for macromolecular structure determination and the
core algorithms that it uses. It will provide hands-on tutorials for
crystallographers of all levels.

The workshop registration deadline is Monday April 11, 2011 at 11:59 pm EST
