Workshop on Modeling Biomolecular Systems in Cellular Environment

The overall aim of this workshop is to bring together a mix of computational and experimental researchers to discuss current challenges in developing comprehensive views of cellular environments. More specifically, there are three main themes: 1) What are the biophysical consequences of cellular environments on protein stability and dynamics beyond simple volume exclusion effects? 2) What are the details of the structure and dynamics of genomic DNA and its transcriptional regulation? 3) How can we develop realistic structural and dynamic models of interacting biomolecules at cellular levels? In this workshop, we invite 20 researchers from abroad and from Japan and would like to have fruitful discussion about this new research topics.
