Critical Assessment of Protein Structure Prediction *CASP10* (an EMBO conference)
9-12 December 2012 | Gaeta, Italy
Every two years since 1994 CASP has conducted a community wide experiment to assess the state of the art in protein structure modeling.
The 2012 conference will report the results of 10th experiment and celebrate progress over almost 20 years of monitoring the field.
To mark the occasion there will be contributions from members of the structure modeling community, each asked to provide their own perspective on aspects of where the field has come in that time, where it will go in the next twenty years, and its changing role in structural biology and biology as a whole. These speakers are:
* David Baker, University of Washington, USA: “From protein structure modeling to protein design”
* Roland Dunbrack, Fox Chase Cancer Institute, USA: “Structural bioinformatics for protein structure prediction”
* Nick Grishin, University of Texas, Dallas, USA: “Predictive Landscape of CASP”
* David Jones, University College London, UK: “The Impact of Evolutionary Information on Protein Structure Prediction: Past, Present and Future”
* Michael Levitt, Stanford University, USA: Two Decades of CASP: The Future of Modeling and Prediction in Structural Biology”
* Manfred Sippl, University of Salzberg, Austria: “Who solved the folding problem?”
* Joel Sussman, Weizmann Institute, Israel: “Disorder – Past, Present and Future”
* Janet Thornton, EBI, UK: “Predicting structure and function: from dreams to reality”.
The CASP 10 results will be presented by the assessors:
* Gaetano Montelione, Rutgers University, USA: Template based protein structure modeling.
* BK Lee, NIH, USA: Template free structure modeling.
* David Jones, University College London, UK: Protein structure model refinement.
