Biological Molecules in the Gas Phase & in Solution
The Gordon Research Conference on "Biological Molecules in the Gas-Phase" brings together experimentalists (from spectroscopy and mass spectrometry) and theoreticians (from ab initio
to computational modeling) interested in the structures, dynamics and conformations of biological systems, including peptides, proteins, DNA, RNA and their assemblies. Recurring sessions include folding and conformations, non-covalent complexes, high-resolution spectroscopy, solvation, top down approaches to protein structure, ECD and ETD mechanisms, structural modeling, and theory. The meeting provides an excellent platform for young researchers (Ph.D, post-doc, junior faculty) to present their results and to participate in the extensive discussions that are at the heart of the GRC meeting. An unique feature of this meeting is that it brings together top-scientist from quite diverse backgrounds, leading to exciting discussions and new scientific ideas and collaborations. The meeting is held biannually since 2001 in the summer on the East-Coast of the USA.
What is a GRC? Gordon Research Conferences (GRC) are 5-day meetings that bring scientists together from around the world to present and discuss unpublished research with other leaders in their field.
