Overview: The meeting will bring together internationally renowned speakers who will review the current state of knowledge in the field of protein design and evolution for biocatalysis. The symposium will be the third event in a series held in Paris (2002) and Greifswald (2006). The main objective of the 2008 meeting will be to intensify discussion and collaboration between experimentalists with theoreticians, which is needed for development of novel biocatalysts by combining directed evolution with rational protein design. The meeting will be highly interdisciplinary through the participation of speakers with various backgrounds and research interests. The lectures will span the fields of mechanistic enzymology, biocatalysis, protein crystallography, computer simulations, phylogenetics, structural bioinformatics and synthetic biology. A substantial amount of time will be devoted to poster presentations and informal discussion to promote exchange of ideas and dissemination of information. Young scientists are encouraged to actively participate and a number of lectures will be reserved for their presentations based on originality and scientific quality of submitted abstracts.
