NMR in Biology



Bio-NMR Satellite Meeting

NMR in Biology

Satellite of the annual FEBS Congress


June 25th 2011, from 10.00 to 16.00

Lingotto Conference Center (Turin, Italy)

This satellite meeting is intended to present the opportunities provided by NMR today to the broad biological community. The opportunity that biologists can exploit the European program for access to Bio-NMR (www.bio-nmr.net) research infrastructures is presented.





Welcome by Israel Pecht (FEBS - Secretary General), Weizmann Institute of Science, Rehovot, Israel

Ivano Bertini (Bio-NMR Project Coordinator) CERM, Florence, Italy

Opening and Introduction


Harald Schwalbe - Center for Biomolecular Magnetic Resonance, J. W. Goethe-University Frankfurt am Main, Germany

NMR spectroscopic investigations of RNA folding in vitro and in cells.


Rolf Boelens - Bijvoet Center for Biomolecular Research, Utrecht University, Netherlands

Structure and dynamics in gene regulation and DNA repair.


Jacob Anglister - Weizmann Institute of Science, Rehovot, Israel

Observation of intermolecular interactions in large protein complexes by 2D-double difference NOESY: application to the 44 kDa interferon-receptor complex.



Lunch (kindly offered by Bruker)



Roberta Pierattelli - CERM & Department of Chemistry, University of Florence, Italy

13C direct detection biomolecular NMR.


Markus Zweckstetter - Max Plank Institute for Biophysical Chemistry, Göttingen, Germany

Frontiers of Structural Biology: The Dynamic Structure of Disordered Proteins and Proteins in the Membrane.


Mikael Oliveberg - Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics, Stockholm University, Sweden

In-cell NMR of the ALS-associated protein Cu/Zn SOD1.
