Announcing a NATO Advanced Science Institute, the
International School of Structural Biology and Magnetic Resonance
3rd Course:  Protein Dynamics, Function and Design
April 16-28, 1997

Directors:  Professors Jean-Francois Lefevre and Oleg Jardetzky
to be held at the Ettore Majorana Centre for Scientific Culture
Erice, Sicily, Italy.

COURSE SUMMARY:  Our Course will integrate structure and dynamic 
information on proteins that has been obtained by different 
methods (x-ray diffraction, nuclear magnetic resonance and 
molecular modeling) and provide a perspective on the major 
research questions in structural biology.  Our aim is to provide 
the student with a critical appreciation of the principal 
methods that can be brought to bear on problems of protein 
structure, dynamics and function.

Introductory lectures will cover the basic principles of the 
methods of study of protein structure and dynamics, followed 
by presentations of specific examples of protein structure 
determination, studies of protein dynamics, protein-ligand 
interactions, structure-function relations in proteins, and 
protein and protein-analog design.
