Computational Challenges in Structural Biology

ESBS, Strasbourg, 14–15th November 2012






Workshop Aims

The main aim of this workshop is to highlight current computational challenges in cryo-electron microscopy and to brain-storm possible solutions. Cryo-electron microscopy is becoming an increasingly powerful technique for solving the structures of large biomolecules. However, in order to reconstruct the 3D structures or large molecular machines with atomic resolution, it is necessary to process many thousands or even millions of 2D micrographs and to use advanced 3D modeling techniques. This workshop brings together experimental and molecular modeling experts in the above fields in order to identify current bottlenecks and to explore possible solutions using high performance computing and integrative modeling techniques.
