A Satellite Meeting of International Conference on Structural Genomics 2000 Yokohama at SPring-8.
On 6 October 2000
Implementation for High-throughput Structure Determination
by Protein Crystallography
--- Present Status and Future Goal---
Date:November 7 and 8, 2000 from 9:00 a.m. to 17:00 p.m.
Place:Auditorium in Main Building at SPring-8 in Hyogo prefecture
(November 6, 2000 Social program: Visit Himeji castle and SPring-8 facilities also for ICSG2000's participants.)
Free to registration
spacer (pre-registration will be required and limited availability of guest house room.)
Dead-line 10 October, 2000
spacer Structural Genomics is one of the most important subjects among the basic life science in Post-Genome Era with view from its application for advancing the New Century Research Frontier. In bringing this challenge in action, varieties of technological innovation and break-through are required. It will now be crucial for us to establish a network for international coordination and cooperation to efficiently deal with these efforts.
spacer X-ray protein crystallography, with NMR as the counterpart technique, is no doubt the main player in this challenge. We think it timely for us together at SPring-8, one of the major synchrotron radiation facilities in the world, to exchange the idea, view and current status toward the new structural biology in coming 21st century as a Satellite Meeting of ICSG2000 Yokohama on November 2-5, 2000 (http://icsg2000.riken.go.jp/).
