Next step for Structural biology --- Structural Life Science

Advanced technologies developed by Structural Genomics efforts are having a huge impact in a basic and applied life science. These technologies are now leading to the new field of "Structural Life Science". This meeting is the 7th biennial International Structural Genomics (ICSG) conference organized by the International Structural Genomics Organization (ISGO). The meeting will serve as a forum for the most recent developments in Structural Genomics and its impact on research in biology, medicine and disease. The scope of the meeting will expand to include a range of life science research fields, with particular attention to drug discovery, biotechnology and environmental issues while keeping its emphasis on high throughput technologies and integration of hybrid methods. There will be satellite hands-on workshops just before the meeting.

We look forward to having you with us in Sapporo and hope that you will have a rewarding scientific and cultural experience as well as an enjoyable visit.

Topics --- Scientific Program and Satellite Workshops

- Structural biology and drug development
- Protein expression, purification, crystallography, NMR and EM
- Hybrid methods and structural analysis of membrane proteins and functional complexes
- Computational approaches to structure, function and drug discovery
- Impact of structural genomics on medical research and industrial applications
