ISMB and 3DSIG Meetings
This year, the International Society for Computational Biology is celebrating the 20th year of the ISMB - Intelligent Systems for Molecular Biology - conference (July 15-17. Long Beach, CA).
Presentations will include Internal pseudo-symmetry in proteins (Andreas Prlić) and Efficient searching and mining of the RCSB Protein Data Bank (Peter Rose).
At the ISMB Special Interest Group meeting Bioinformatics Open Source Conference (BOSC), Andreas Prlić will also present How to use BioJava to calculate one billion protein structure alignments at the RCSB PDB website.
At the 3Dsig: Structural Bioinformatics & Computational Biophysics satellite meeting, John Westbrook will discuss Format dj vu: PDBx/mmCIF, the new data format for the wwPDB. Molecule of the Month author David Goodsell will describe Communicating and Interacting with the Molecular Cell (along with Arthur Olson).
Associate Director Phil Bourne is one of the 3Dsig Program Chairs.
Also at ISMB, the RCSB PDB Poster Prize will be awarded at ISMB for the best student poster presentation in the category of Structure and Function Prediction.
