713 Thermodynamics of Biomolecular Folding and Assembly

Thursday, November 12, 2015: 12:30 PM - 3:00 PM
255B (Salt Palace Convention Center)

Biological systems require precise folding, recognition, and self-assembly behaviors to form complex nanostructures and molecular machines. This session solicits theoretical, simulation, and experimental studies that address aspects of both natural and synthetic biomolecule folding and assembly. We encourage submissions that focus on fundamental biophysical thermodynamic and transport properties, mechanisms, and models. Topics of interest include: protein, RNA, and DNA folding and stability; design of structure and function; biomolecules at interfaces and under confinement; and self-assembly of biomolecules into machines and materials.
