Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce the availability of young scientist travel fellowships to the International Conference on Structural Genomics 2015 "Deep Sequencing Meets Structural Biology", which will be held on the campus of the Weizmann Institute of Science in Rehovot, Israel June 7-11, 2015. This conference is intended to foster international collaboration and to provide an overview for the most recent developments in Structural Biology and Structural Genomics and future impacts on biology, medicine and disease.

There are two types of young scientist travel support available (deadlines are both March 31, 2015):

Young scientist travel support of up to $1,000 US will be made available to graduate students and post-doctoral researchers to attend ICSG2015. A total of 5 International Structural Genomics Organization (ISGO) - NIH Protein Structure Initiative (PSI) Student Travel Fellowships have kindly been provided by the ISGO and the NIH PSI.

Fellowships of €500 for students from Instruct countries will be awarded to attend the pre-conference workshop “Technical and Analytical Approaches to the Translation of Deep Sequencing Data into Three-Dimensions” (7-June-2014 09:00-12:00) and to stay on and participate in the full conference. A total of 8 Fellowships have kindly been provided by Instruct (https://www.structuralbiology.eu).

To apply for a student travel fellowship please see http://www.weizmann.ac.il/conferences/ICSG2015/young-scientists-travel-support .

The International Conference on Structural Genomics 2015 "Deep Sequencing Meets Structural Biology” conference

The scientific topics to be covered in ICSG 2015 (see http://www.weizmann.ac.il/conferences/ICSG2015) include:

·   Deep sequencing for modeling and refinement of macromolecular structures
·   Membrane protein structure and function using complementary methods
·   Technological advances in XFEL, Cryo-EM, NMR, SAXS, MS, MX and macromolecular complexes
·   Combining low and high resolution data and modeling for structural biology
·   Synergistic use of 3D structures and deep sequencing to realize personalized medicine
·   Protein design and deep sequencing
·   Cancer, antibiotic resistance and drug discovery

In order to widen the opportunities for younger researchers, we have organized satellite workshops before ICSG 2015 (during the day on June 7, 2015). These include:

·   Cryo-EM developments for structural biology [Sponsored by FEI]
·   Approaches to the translation of deep sequencing data into three-dimensions [Sponsored by Instruct]
·   PHENIX: Automated determination of molecular structures [Tom Terwilliger & Pavel Afonine]
·   HKL3000: From X-ray diffraction images to structure determination in minutes [Wladek Minor]
·   Protein expression and characterization workshop [Tamar Unger & Yoav Peleg]
·   Proteopedia: A Scientific Wiki Bridging the Rift Between 3D Structure & Function [Jaime Prilusky & Joel L. Sussman]

Five oral presentations will be chosen from the posters, and six poster prizes will be awarded, so be sure to submit your abstracts by April 15, 2015!
