Prague Protein Spring 2018

PPS 2018 aims to cover a thematic issue: "Proteins at Work" addressing concepts and system approaches demonstrated on selected general topics: "Proteins in living cells",  "Large Scale organization of Proteins", "Proteins in Biomineralization" and "Integrating knowledge about Proteins at the systems' level".

The conference will reflect both the theoretical and the experimental points of view, and finally, tackle a question of utilization of the knowledge in applied science. The major goal of PPS 2018 meeting is to propose a discussion on the current progress in the field and anticipate the future direction in protein science.

Advanced methods in macromolecular crystallization VIII

The practical course named “Advanced methods in macromolecular crystallization VIII“ will take place at the Academic and University Center at Nove Hrady (Czech Republic) from June 10th to June 16th, 2018. This crystallization course will be continuation of seven previously successfully organized FEBS combined practical and lecture and later practical FEBS courses. The planned course (for undergraduate, postgraduate students and postdocs with an interest in macromolecular crystallization) will be quite different from other established courses in protein crystallization, which are mostly of practical character and tend to neglect the basic theoretical aspects of crystal growth process. New trends and other methods will be discussed last day of the course and hereby the whole range of structural methods will be covered. The main aim and big advantage of the course is a healthy mixture of advanced discussions of the theory and of laboratory experiments.
