ICSG 2011 Abstract and Early Registration Deadline Feb 28, 2011

Dear Colleagues,

We hope that you are planning to attend the International Conference on
Structural Genomics 2011, which will be held in Toronto, Canada on May
10-14, 2011. The meeting is designed to serve as a forum to discuss the
most recent developments in structural genomics, structural/chemical
biology, and their impact on research in biology, medicine and disease.
There are many speaking slots still open that will be chosen from
submitted poster abstracts. We invite you to submit your abstract by
February 28, 2011. Please also note that early registration will end on
February 28, 2011, so we invite you to register now in order to take
advantage of the reduced registration fee.

In addition to the main ICSG meeting, there will be a whole day of free
concurrent satellite workshops (May 10, 2011), 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.

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.

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.

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.

Please visit http://www.icsg2011.org  for ICSG 2011 meeting and workshop
registration details and to submit your abstract.

We hope to see you there!
