             Call For Papers

    Special Session on Proteins: structure, function and interaction

         held in conjunction with

                 PRIB 2008

           October 15-17, 2008

            Novotel, St Kilda
           Melbourne, Australia

Bioinformatics plays a major role in large scale computations on
analysis and prediction of protein structure, function and their
interactions. The three-dimensional structures of proteins dictate
their functions and the amino acid sequence carries the necessary
information for encoding the 3D structure. Hence, prediction of
protein structure and function from their amino acid sequences remains
a major challenge in Bioinformatics. The sequence and structural
analysis reveal deep insights to understand the structure and
functions of proteins as well as to derive the numerical values for
different parameters. The sequence and structure based parameters have
wide range of applications in predicting protein secondary and
tertiary structures, solvent accessibility, folding rates, disorder,
binding sites in protein complexes, fold recognition and so on

Topics include, but are not limited to:

In this special session, we invite papers from all areas of protein
structure and function using computational techniques. The areas of
interest (but not limited to) are as follows: Sequence and structural
analysis of proteins and complexes, Prediction of protein secondary
and tertiary structures, solvent accessibility and other residue wise
parameters, Analysis and prediction of binding sits in protein-
protein, protein-nucleic acid, protein-carbohydrate and protein-ligand
complexes, Functional prediction of proteins, Machine learning
techniques, Database analysis, Protein stability, Patterns in protein
structures and their complexes
