This workshop will bring together both experimentalists and theorists with the goal of identifying and discussing the state-of-the-art and emerging techniques for biomolecular structure, dynamics and function characterization. The function of a specific biomolecule is closely coupled to a multitude of other biomolecules and the ultimate goal is to understand how interactions between biomolecules shape the complex organization, behavior, and evolution of biomolecules. In this workshop, different biomolecular interactions will be considered, including protein-protein interactions, interactions between proteins and DNA, as well as protein-lipid interactions.
We will discuss the advancement of existing, and the development of new, experimental and simulation techniques. Newer experimental techniqes enable higher position and time resolution, integral to understanding biomolecular structure and dynamics. New simulation techniques help achieve larger length and time scales and attain new information about biomolecules. By inviting experimentalists and theorists to the workshop we aim to bridge the gap between theory and experiment.
