From 21st to 24th June, the Center for Nanobiology and Structural Biology hosted the 7th Visegrad Symposium on Structural System Biology. The Scientific Organizing Committee consisted of Dr.Babak Minofar, prof. Rüdiger Ettrich and Dr. David Řeha from the Center for Nanobiology and Structural Biology, Academy of Sciences, Nové Hrady, Czech Republic; Prof. Ján Urban from Comenius University in Bratislava, Slovakia; Dr. Béla Viskolcz and Dr. Imre G. Csizmadia from the University of Miskolc, Hungary; and Dr. hab. Joanna Sułkowska from the University of Warsaw, Poland.
The symposium focused on various computational methods used in the study of biologically relevant macromolecules ranging from quantum calculations via atomistic models to coarse-grained molecular dynamics of biological systems. Furthermore, it dealt with experimental techniques (mainly spectroscopic methods) that complement the simulations or can be used for verification.
