69 Biomolecular Engineering

Monday, November 14, 2016: 8:00 AM - 10:30 AM
Continental 8 (Hilton San Francisco Union Square)
Description:
This session invites contributions on novel methods for engineering biomolecules and the applications of these in therapeutics, diagnostics, sensors, and other engineering applications. Novel in vitro and in vivo molecular engineering approaches are also encouraged. Fundamental experimental and computational studies on the structure and structure-function properties of engineered biomolecules are also welcome.
