Conference Description:

Intrinsically disordered proteins are Nature’s response to the increased complexity of higher organisms and are associated with diseases such as Cancer and Neurodegeneration. Genome sequencing projects and bioinformatics analyses have shown that disordered proteins are highly abundant in eukaryotes and are tightly regulated. Enabling technologies that offer structural information in solution, such as Nuclear Magnetic Resonance, Small Angle X-ray scattering, and single molecule fluorescence, are providing novel insights into the structural propensities and interactions of disordered proteins. A new paradigm, in which dynamic averaging of conformational ensembles is central, is emerging for the structural and functional analysis of disordered proteins.

This conference gathers together some of the major contributors to the development of this field to analyze the current ideas and future avenues of research in a multidisciplinary, think-tank atmosphere.

Organised by IRB Barcelona with the collaboration of the Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria Foundation (fBBVA).

Hosted by the Institut d'Estudis Catalans (IEC).
