448 Protein Structure, Function, and Stability II

Wednesday, October 31, 2012: 8:30 AM
Washington (Westin )
Description:
We invite submissions pertaining to protein structure, function, and stability. Studies may include structural or functional analysis, engineering of new proteins, analysis of protein conformational and colloidal stability, mechanisms of protein folding and misfolding, and mechanisms of protein degradation via physical and chemical routes. Reports relevant to other biotechnological products are also welcome.
