14th International Conference on the Crystallization of Biological Macromolecules
We invite you to participate in the 14th International Conference on the Crystallization of Biological Macromolecules (ICCBM14) on September 23-28, 2012. The conference will be held in Huntsville, the “Rocket City,” in the beautiful state of Alabama. The meeting site will be at the Westin within the second largest research park in the U.S. nearby the NASA Marshall Space Flight Center, the Redstone Arsenal and the new HudsonAlpha Institute for Biotechnology.
The theme of the meeting will be synthetic design, engineering and strategies for macromolecular crystallization. Focus will be on the practical and theoretical basis of macromolecular crystallization involving synthetic biology, protein complexes, nucleic acids, membrane proteins and convection-free crystallization platforms.
A practical workshop will precede the main conference devoted to hands-on instruction on selected aspects of macromolecule production, synthetic biology engineering and crystal growth.
Lodging will be available at the Westin conference center as well as other convenient and affordable housing nearby the University of Alabama in Huntsville and Research Park.
