3DSIG 2009 – Structural Bioinformatics and Computational Biophysics

An ISMB satellite meeting. Stockholm, June 27-28 2009.

3Dsig has established itself as a main event in the field of structural bioinformatics and computational biophysics since 2004. Amongst this year’s confirmed keynote speakers are Michael Levitt and Gunnar von Heijne. This is a unique event bringing together in one place the structural computational biology community. The program will be built around talks from accepted abstracts and invited speakers.


  • February 16, 2009 – Registration opens for 3Dsig and ISMB/ECCB. 
  • March 18, 2009 – Deadline for submitting an abstract to 3Dsig to be considered for oral presentation.
  • April 2, 2009 – Deadline for travel fellowship application for the main ISMB/ECCB conference.


What’s trendy in structural bioinformatics ?

Instead of our regular Bi-weekly digest, Lets take a pause and dissect the trends in computational structural biology. As you may noticed, we added to the sidebar a “Structural Bioinformatics” titles feed. This feed is maintained by ~ 30 people at CiteULike, grouped by their liking to: “topics ranging from sequence-structure relationships to molecular simulations of biomolecules”. We used wordle to present popular items on that feed (around 1350 titles) and the results are striking.
