Conference Description

The Biopolymers conference has been held bi-annually since 1964. The 2012 meeting will be the 25th meeting. During this period the meeting has stayed at the forefront of biopolymers research. The meeting explores the relationship between structure and function of biological polymers from physical and chemical principles. This area of research has witnessed large growth, the development of new techniques, and the discovery of new protein and nucleic acid structures and functions. This meeting convenes leaders in the field with students, postdocs and juniors scientist in a five-day conference to discuss the current state and future directions of research efforts in biopolymers. The Biopolymers GRC is uniquely poised to foster connections between chemistry, chemical engineering, computer science, physics and biology. This meeting of scientists applying experimental and theoretical methods to study biological polymers encourages the exchange and discussion of results and ideas among participants with different backgrounds, thereby promoting interdisciplinary research activities.

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Conferences (GRC) are 5-day meetings that bring scientists together from around the world to present and discuss unpublished research with other leaders in their field.
