Despite progress with experimental high-throughput techniques for the analysis of protein-protein interactions, bioinformatics, molecular modeling and simulation can play important roles in determining the stability and the structure of protein complexes, in identifying weak transient interactions, in understanding the role of non-functional interactions in a crowed molecular environment and in analyzing dynamic protein interaction networks.
This meeting aims at defining the present strengths and weaknesses in this rapidly growing field. The conference will bring together renowned scientists working in bioinformatics, molecular modeling and molecular simulation and it will be an occasion to discuss and open new perspectives in the field.
The meeting addresses a large public, including students. The meeting is organized within the framework of the French action “Future Investments in Bioinformatics” - MAPPING Project.
