We are pleased to announce a one-week school on Algorithms in Structural Bioinformatics. The aim is to introduce advanced methods in this domain, giving special attention to interdisciplinary approaches. The main focus will be on methodological developments meant to analyze and predict macromolecular assemblies, as well as on the corresponding software.
The following topics will be taught:
I. Obtaining and organizing structural information for modeling studies (J. Janin, C. Robert)
II. Modeling protein complexes and assemblies with Voronoi diagrams (F. Cazals)
III. Molecules as robots: mining the flexibility of proteins (J. Cortés)
IV. Structural comparisons (R. Andonov, N. Malod-Dognin)
V. Docking algorithms (C. Prévost, M. Zacharias)
The program will span 5.5 days. The first afternoon will consist of a mini research symposium during which each participant will present his/her research interests and achievements. Each of the five subsequent days will consist of a lecture (morning session) and a hands-on computer lab (afternoon session).

DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS. A one-page application (pdf format) should be sent by email to email@example.com with Subject “AlgoSB application”, by September 7th, 2012.
VENUE AND PARTICIPATION FEES. The Algorithmics in Structural Bioinformatics school will take place on the French Riviera, at INRIA Sophia Antipolis – Méditerranée.
The participation fees will be of 390 euros, which include lunches, coffee breaks, and social events.
