Oral and poster presentations are held on the following topics:
As a part of the Conference we organize the International Symposium “Biophysics of complex systems. Molecular modeling. Systems biology”.
With advances in experimental sciences it becomes obvious that new comprehensive approach is required for deep understanding of biological phenomena at different spatial and temporal scales. The need for integration between different branches of knowledge emerges in such disciplines as bioinformatics and systems biology. The Workshop is aimed at facilitating dialogue between experimental, computational, and theoretical aspects in life sciences and will address interdisciplinary practices across the natural sciences.
The Symposium scientific program includes lectures by leading scientists, oral and poster presentations, workshops and discussions, master classes on:
- biophysics of nanostructures
- molecular modeling
- analysis and modeling of subcellular systems
- modeling methods of dynamic systems in biology, ecology, medicine
- spatial and temporal self-organization processes in biology and medicine
- problems of biophysical teaching at universities
The following workshops will be held during the Symposium:
- Molecular modeling
(Maria G. Khrenova and Ilya B. Kovalenko),
Ab initio methods, molecular and Brownian dynamics simulations play a key role in the investigation of different objects. At the workshop we will discuss physical basis of molecular modeling and its application in various fields of science and technology.
- Systems biology
(Anatoly A. Sorokin and Tatiana Yu. Plusnina).
System biology is a young and rapidly developing branch of science that emerged at the beginning of the millennium at the intersection of molecular biology, computational mathematics, bioinformatics and complex systems theory.
Several master classes are proposed for the Conference participants:
- Python for biological applications: basic knowledge of the Python language (Ivan Ozerov),
- Modeling of the spatially distributed systems [Gierer-Meinhardt, Brusselator, Gray-Scott models] (Alexei Nesterenko),
- Complex data clustering algorithm on the example of the biological image analysis (Ivan Ozerov),
- Processing of the molecular dynamics simulation and quantum-chemical calculations results [PyMol package] (Dmitry Zlenko),
- Calculation and analysis of the normal modes of protein structures [ProDy package] (Philipp Orekhov),
- Analysis of conservatism and co-evolution of amino acid positions in the protein [ProDy package] (Philipp Orekhov),
- Homology modeling the spatial structure of the protein [MODELLER package] (Dmitry Zlenko),
- Calculation of partial charges and bond interaction parameters [FireFly package] for molecular mechanics model construction [GROMACS package] (Alexei Nesterenko).
As the result of the received applications processing, the workshops with the most participants registered will be selected. When filling the application form, please indicate what activities you plan to visit. To participate in the master classes one should have a personal laptop with preinstalled software (installation instructions will be sent to registered participants). Most of the workshops imply basic knowledge of Python programming language. If you are not familiar with this language, please visit the basic course also.
