Virus Assembly 
Symposium
----------------------------------------------------------------------
A symposium will be held on Virus Assembly in Marrakech, Morocco 
from Saturday 8th (arrival) to Thursday 13th April 1995.

The symposium will include the following subjects: 

1.	Three-dimensional structures and analyses of viruses and viral proteins by X-ray 
crystallography, cryo-electron microscopy and NMR etc;
2.	Virus assembly pathways and morphogenesis;
3.	The role of protein processing (proteolytic cleavage, glycosylation, post-
translational modification) in virus assembly;
4.	Structure-function relationships of virus receptor-ligand interactions;
5.	Antiviral drug design for therapeutic intervention strategies.

The symposium will cover animal viruses, both enveloped and non-enveloped, as well 
as other virus assembly systems. Plenary session speakers will cover a variety of 
major topics concerning virus assembly and disassembly. Other speakers will be 
chosen from the submitted Abstracts with the objective of providing opportunities to 
most of the participants to present their work. We expect the meeting to be 
scientifically stimulating with the location providing a relaxing and informal, yet 
exciting atmosphere.

If you would like to attend and participate in the meeting please mail your
