Hi All

On behalf of the organizing committee, I am pleased to announce the “5th
International Symposium on Diffraction Structural Biology” (ISDSB2016). The
Symposium will take place on Sunday, August 7, 2016 through Wednesday,
August 10, 2016 in Knoxville, Tennessee, USA.

This symposium will report on the latest discoveries in structural biology
using X-ray, neutron, and electron diffraction, and complementary
techniques such as small-angle scattering, nuclear magnetic resonance
spectroscopy, electron microscopy, and advanced computational approaches.
Scientific insights at the molecular level allow structure guided drug
discovery and protein engineering for improved biocatalysis. This basic
research is important for supporting applications in the pharmaceutical
industry and for new, sustainable, and environmentally friendly approaches
to the production of chemical reagents and biofuels.

Session topics include:

Drug Design
Enzyme Mechanism and Allostery
Macromolecular Complexes
Membranes and Membrane Proteins
New Instruments and Methods
Sources and Facilities

A list of confirmed, invited speakers can be found on the conference web
pages. The Symposium will be accompanied by two optional 1-day
workshops on August
6, focused on Neutron Protein Crystallography and on Small-Angle
Scattering, respectively.

Please visit the conference website for further information:
