Current opinion in structural biology and DNA repair
Date:6/1/2011

Elsevier, the leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, is organising the third Current Opinion conference, the Current Opinion in Structural Biology & DNA Repair.

The conference considers the structural biology of the major pathways of DNA repair and their interface with all DNA transactions in cell biology. Topics include the involvement of DNA repair complexes in decisions points in cell biology including replication, recombination, and transcription processes. The presentations will include the nature of the DNA damage, our understanding of repair detection, signally, and processing mechanisms and the connections of DNA repair responses and human health.

What makes this conference special is that attendees, and especially the younger scientists, will have the opportunity to meet the invited speakers in the 'Meet the Professor Sessions'. This is one of those rare occasions that young scientists can network in a small, intimate setting with leaders in the field, and ask those all important questions that they feel could contribute to the development of their career.

Conference Chairs Tom Blundell and John Tainer comment: "We are thrilled by the speakers and program that will push forward the frontiers of structural biology where complexes and conformations join structures to biological outcomes. This conference, including the meet the professor sessions, provides a key opportunity to be present at the dawn for structural systems biology. Join us in linking structures to biological networks."

The following speakers will be present at the sessions:

Loreena Beese, Duke University, USA
Presentation: Protein-DNA complexes in the human DNA mismatch repair pathway (tentative title)

Walter Chazin, Vanderbilt University, USA
Presentation: Structural architecture and remodelling of modular multi-domain proteins in DNA repair machines

Jessica Downs, University of Sussex, UK
Presentation: The role of the RSC chromatin remodelling complex in DNA damage responses

Caroline Kisker, University of Wrzburg - Rudolf Virchow Center, Germany
Presentation: Towards damage verification in nucleotide excision repair

Luca Pellegrini, University of Cambridge, UK
Presentation: Molecular insights into the function of proteins important for DNA replication and repair
