IRBM practical course: frontiers of protein structure prediction

*** NOTE: Deadline for applications:   1st July 1995 ***

The course is directed at young scientists with some experience and a 
strong interest in protein structure and structure prediction who wish 
to learn about the latest developments in the field.

        The aim of the workshop is to predict as much as possible about 
the structure of a number of proteins of biological interest, taking 
advantage of the most recent methodologies for fold recognition and ab 
initio prediction.
 
        The participants will be divided into working groups assisted by 
an instructor. Each group will be equipped with state of the art 
software and hardware (kindly provided by Silicon Graphics) and assigned 
the sequences of proteins whose structure has to be predicted.
    
        The predictions will be made public as a technical document and 
also available via World Wide Web. Suggestions for target proteins can 
also be submitted by non-participants via WWW (see accompanying email)
