Aims and Scope
IZKF Muenster Workshops represent a new series of basic research-oriented
discussion platforms. The first workshop of this series is designed to
bring together researchers from biomedicine with an interest in specific
protein families, and researchers from bioinformatics who analyze the
evolution of proteins. Close interdisciplinary interaction on the
application of bioinformatics tools (i.e. database searching, alignment,
phylogeny and functional/structural analysis) to the elucidation of
protein evolution shall be fostered. Protein families of special interest
are ABC transporters, Serpins, Kinases, Metalloproteases and Collagens.

Call for Oral Presentations
