PSB SYMPOSIUM "MACROMOLECULES IN ACTION"
The aim of this meeting is to illustrate how the big biological questions are resolved by combining key methods in structural biology (eg X-ray and neutron crystallography, cryo-EM, NMR and small angle scattering - SAXS and SANS) with other complementary approaches, enhancing our understanding of the dynamic behaviour of macromolecular complexes in the cell.
To fully understand the mechanistics and dynamics of complex cellular maschineries, i tis very important to place results in an appropriate biological context using information from all resolution levels - from atomic detail to cellular and higher levels of organisation.
Program will be devided into sections:
- Molecular machines
- Machines on genes
- Machines on RNA
- Cross membrane talk
- Technology advancements

The Poster Session will take place on the evening of Thursday 4th July with a buffet reception from 19:10 to 21:00 and all participants are strongly encouraged to present their research during the symposium. The best posters will receive an award.
You can submiss your poster till 30 of April.
The PSB is pleased to announce the open call for nominations to the PSB Young Investigator Award, which will be attributed during the symposium.
Instruct-ERIC workshop on Computational Approaches in Integration of Structural Biology Techniques

The 2019 Nobel Prize in Chemistry
Is awarded to John Goodenough, M. Stanley Whittingham and Akira Yoshino “for the development of lithium-ion batteries”.
The Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine 2019
is awarded jointly to William G. Kaelin Jr, Sir Peter J. Ratcliffe and Gregg L. Semenza “for their discoveries of how cells sense and adapt to oxygen availability.”
The Nobel Prize in Physics 2019
is awarded ”for contributions to our understanding of the evolution of the universe and Earth’s place in the cosmos”, with one half to James Peebles “for theoretical discoveries in physical cosmology” and the other half jointly to Michel Mayor and Didier Queloz “for the discovery of an exoplanet orbiting a solar-type star.”
