Helen Berman talks at BIOCEV

  • Biocev, Vestec u Prahy
Professor Berman is a prominent structural biologist and crystallographer, member of the Board of Governors, Professor Emerita of Chemistry and Chemical Biology at Rutgers University, NJ. She studied crystallography at the Pittsburgh University and is an author of many important structures
including some of the first structures of RNA and DNA oligonucleotides and polypeptides mimicking the collagen fiber. As a crystallographer, she worked at the Fox Chase Cancer Institute for many years. In 1989, she moved to Rutgers University, NJ where she founded the Nucleic Acid Database, one of the most important structural databases of biomolecules, and began to run the Protein Data Bank in 1998. She was the PDB director between years 1998 and 2013. In early 2000, she was one of the initiators of the organization integrating the PDB services, so called world wide PDB, wwPDB.

Title of Prof. Berman talk is Anticipating Innovations in Structural Biology

"The Protein Data Bank has evolved from a small repository containing structures of a few biological macromolecules to a rich information resource that is used by a very diverse international community. An analysis of how this was achieved has informed the ways in which the Worldwide Protein Data Bank (wwPDB) will meet the new challenges of providing information about large macromolecular machines."

BIOCEV can be reached easily by car or by public transport, BUS 326 from Opatov, METRO line C.

Looking forward to seeing you at the talk on November 13!
