Subject: 14.09.17 Significance of Knotted Structures for Function of Proteins and Nucleic Acids, University of Warsaw, Poland
International conference, on energy landscape of complex structure, 
proteins and nucleic acids
September 17-21 2014, Warsaw, Poland (organized by Biophysical Society)

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce the call for abstracts (talks and posters) for:
Significance of Knotted Structures for Function of Proteins and Nucleic 
Acids meeting that will be held September 17-21, 2014, in Warsaw, Poland.

Submit your abstract today to be included in this exciting program! 
The deadline to submit a late abstract is June 9. 

This meeting will focus on energy landscape of proteins and nucleic acids. 
Special attention will be given to understand entanglement and its role 
for functions of biomolecules. 
The conference will explore such topics as: 

    Structure of Proteins; 
    Energy Landscape of Biomolecules; 
    Evolution Approach to Proteins, RNA; 
    Mathematical Perspectives on Knotting; 
    Mechanical properties of proteins and DNA; 
    RNA Dynamics; 
    DNA-Protein Interactions; 
    DNA Topology and Topoisomerase; 
    DNA Knots and Viral Topology Capsids.

Confirmed invited speakers include: Ada Yonath (Nobel prize 2009), 
Jane Clarke, Alexey Murzin, Robert Jernigan, Sophie Jackson,
