Announcement and call for abstracts: Structural Bioinformatics microsymposium at ECM29, August 23-28, Rovinj, Croatia

The 29th European Crystallographic Meeting (ECM29), to be held on August 23-28 in Rovinj, Croatia, will feature a Structural Bioinformatics microsymposium (http://ecm29.ecanews.org/programme/microsymposia/#ms10). All structural bioinformatics topics with relevance to macromolecular crystallography are welcome. Abstract submission (for oral or poster presentation) is available at http://ecm29.ecanews.org/participate/abstract-submission/, with deadline March 23. The final program will encompass two 30-min talks from invited speakers, three 20-min talks chosen from the submitted abstracts, and poster presentations. For questions or additional information please Email guido.capitani@psi.ch.

Olympic Crystal Packing

In the spirit of the 2012 Olympic games. Found at the webpage of the group of Prof. Heinz Neumann, Department for Molecular Structural Biology, Georg-August-University Göttingen. Anyone knows what protein is it?

The Europeans are cleaning up the PDB, woohoo!!!

I just read this summary from Katharine Sanderson in Nature about an effort led by Gert Vriend to correct and improve crystallographic structures in the PDB. I’m going to read their paper, “PDB_REDO: automated re-refinement of X-ray structure models in the PDB” before I get too excited about it, but Ms. Sanderson said the R-free’s are going down, so my hopes are high.

Correcting errors in structures in the PDB in an automated fashion has been sorely needed for a long time. When it comes to modeling, benchmarking, and experimentation based on structures from the PDB, GIGO.

Short Course: Crystallography for Modelers

The RCSB PDB will host a short course for practicing modelers looking for a better understanding of crystal structures and PDB data.

Dates: May 7 & 8 at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey in Piscataway, NJ.

The target audience is PDB data users working in pharmaceuticals, biologicals, chemical industries, academia, and others who are looking to understand how to interpret in crystal structure data: possible problems, errors, and accuracy; how the data is determined and annotated; and what information and data is provided beyond atomic coordinates.
