Dear Colleagues,

We hope that you will be able to attend the International Conference on Structural Genomics 2015 "Deep Sequencing Meets Structural Biology", which will be held on the campus of the Weizmann Institute of Science in Rehovot, Israel June 7-11, 2015. This conference is intended to foster international collaboration and to provide an overview for the most recent developments in Structural Biology and Structural Genomics and future impacts on biology, medicine and disease.

The scientific topics to be covered in ICSG 2015 include:

·   Deep sequencing for modeling and refinement of macromolecular structures
·   Membrane protein structure and function using complementary methods
·   Technological advances in XFEL, Cryo-EM, NMR, SAXS, MS, MX and macromolecular complexes
·   Combining low and high resolution data and modeling for structural biology
·   Synergistic use of 3D structures and deep sequencing to realize personalized medicine
·   Protein design and deep sequencing
·   Cancer, antibiotic resistance and drug discovery

In order to widen the opportunities for younger researchers, we have organized satellite workshops before ICSG 2015 (during the day on June 7, 2015). These include:

·   Cryo-EM developments for structural biology [Sponsored by FEI]
·   PHENIX: Automated determination of molecular structures
·   HKL3000: From X-ray diffraction images to structure determination in minutes
·   Approaches to the translation of deep sequencing data into three-dimensions
·   Protein expression and characterization workshop
·   Proteopedia: A Scientific Wiki Bridging the Rift Between 3D Structure & Function

You can see all the details of the conference at http://www.weizmann.ac.il/conferences/ICSG2015 .

Five oral presentations will be chosen from the posters, and six poster prizes will be awarded, so be sure to submit your abstracts by April 15, 2015!
