About the Conference

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 (IDP2017) at the Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISER), Mohali 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. The following topics will be discussed at IDP2017:

  • Cellular Functions and Dysfunctions
  • Bioinformatics and Systems Biology
  • Structural Biology and Disorder-to-Function Relationships
  • Chemical Biology
  • Intracellular Phase Separation and Membrane-less Organelles
  • Pathological Amyloids
  • Functional Prions and Amyloids
  • Disease Models and Therapeutic Strategies
  • Emerging Single-Molecule Fluorescence Methods
  • Folding Disorder: From Test Tubes to Cells
  • Molecular Simulations and Computational Biology
  • Structural Plasticity and Disorder in Lipid-Protein Interactions
