|About the Meeting||
Intrinsically disordered proteins (IDPs) challenge the tenets of the traditional structure-function paradigm. There is an emerging consensus that retaining disorder is an evolutionary strategy that allows complex functions within a compact genome of higher organisms. However, the disorder-to-function relationships are poorly understood. Additionally, dysfunction of many IDPs is associated with a range of deadly diseases such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases and cancers. This international meeting will bring a large number of world-leading scientists together in a single forum. Additionally, Young researchers, especially, students, postdocs and young investigators, working on a variety of important aspects of IDPs, will be able to construct a bigger picture of this fascinating area that connects the tools and concepts of physics, chemistry, structural biology, biophysics, bio-engineering and computational biology to cell biology, neuroscience and disease biology.
