552nd Wilhelm and Else Heraeus Seminar 2014

 

 

 

 

Physics of Biomolecular Folding and Assembly: Theory meets Experiment

General Information

The WE-Heraeus-Seminar: "Physics of Biomolecular Folding and Assembly: Theory meets Experiment" was hold at the Physikzentrum Bad Honnef from Feb 2nd till Feb 6th (2014). It was generously funded by the WE-Heraeus-Stiftung.

Update 10 Feb 2014

We as organizers would like to thank all the participants for their contributions to the success of the seminar. We had great oral presentation by fantastic speakers from all around the world, many excellent posters and a stimulating atmosphere for countless scientific discussions. Therefore, we would like to thank the WE-Heraeus-Stiftung for their generous financial and adminstrative support of this event which made all this possible.

 


 

On the molecular level life functions by concerted biomolecular machines like proteins, RNA or DNA. Both ingenious experimental advances and theoretical modeling have lead to a significantly better understanding of the underlying principles. The 552nd WE Heraeus Seminar gathers experts from around the world to present and discuss the progress in this interdisciplinary field.
