Thermodynamics and Transport Properties (01a)

#253 - Thermophysical Properties of Biological Systems I (01A07)
The focus of this session is the study of complex processes in biological systems. Contributions from theoreticians, simulators, and experimentalists are welcome. Suggested topics include protein-protein interactions, concentration and crowding effects on biomolecular folding and stability, misfolding and aggregation events, interactions of proteins with interfaces, and self-assembly of biological molecules.
