[ccp4bb] BCA Biological Structures Group Winter Meeting: "Seeing the Wood for the Trees in Structural Biology".

Registration is now live for the British Crystallographic Association, Biological Structures Group Winter Meeting 2016. 

"Seeing the Wood for the Trees in Structural Biology."

The meeting will be held on Monday December 19th 2016 at Birkbeck College London starting at 11.00 am.

The aim of the meeting is to glimpse at some of the contemporary approaches for assembling individual molecular structures into a bigger picture of biological systems, be they structural, metabolic, functional, disease-related or such-like. The meeting doubles as a career celebration event for the many ex-students, colleagues and collaborators of Prof Steve Wood whose research in Sussex, Birkbeck, Southampton and more recently UCL spans at least some 5 decades. 

Speakers include: 

Prof Tom Blundell FRS, Department of Biochemistry, University of Cambridge. "Increasing complexity to obtain selectivity in cell regulation: structural studies of multiprotein signalling systems."

Prof Liz Carpenter, Structural Genomics Consortium, University of Oxford. 

Prof Jonas Emsley, School of Pharmacy, University of Nottingham. "A PhD student's quest for the crystalline entity, touch wood."

Dr Simon Kolstoe, School of Biological Sciences, University of Portsmouth. "Determining the molecular interactions of serum amyloid P component." 

Prof Laurence Pearl FRS, School of Life Sciences, University of Sussex. 

Prof Helen Saibil FRS, Department of Biological Sciences, Birkbeck. 

Prof Garry Taylor, School of Biology, University of St Andrews. 

Prof Martin Warren, School of Biosciences, University of Kent

The closing date for registration is Friday 9th December 2016. As usual, the registration fee will include one year's membership of the BCA.
