Session Request for Structural Biology

Postby chrishmorris » Wed Jan 30, 2013 1:33 pm

The productivity of structural biologists has increased rapidly over the years, thanks to improvements in instruments including beamlines and detectors; improved reagents; and improved software.
The next challenge is that the level of complexity, even of individual bio-macromolecules, and much more so of higher order structures, from macromolecular machines to organelles and cells, cannot be fully addressed by a single experimental approach. Consequently, progress in SB will crucially depend both on establishing synergy between several experimental SB techniques, such as X-ray crystallography, NMR spectroscopy, electron microscopy.
This involves a major challenge in data management. This session will discuss this challenge, with a view to establishing an RDA WOrking Group for structural biology.
