Proteins experience a significantly different environment in vivo than in the context of the idealized dilute environment commonly studied in experiments and simulations. The presence of a high concentration of other macromolecules in the cell (nucleic acids, sugars, lipids, chaperones and other proteins) can dramatically alter protein folding pathways and affect protein-protein interactions. The aim of this workshop is to explore the complications that arise in the cell, with an emphasis on macromolecular crowding, chaperone-mediated folding, membrane-protein interactions and protein aggregation.
If you are interested in attending a meeting, but have not received an invitation, please contact the workshop organizer about availability before registering. Most TSRC meetings are very small, typically only about 25 people. If you have registered for a meeting you were no invited to, you may be subject to a $100 fee.
