Symposium #121 on

Deciphering molecular complexity from protein functions to cellular network in December 15-16, 2015

Let the system speak for itself

INTRODUCTION

The aim of the symposium:
Due to the technological breakthrough, single molecules level studies become available. The advantage of single molecules is that no ensemble average is needed. Single molecules are sensitive probes to the environments. The kinetic schemes can be mapped out and conformational dynamics can be probed directly without ambiguity of homogeneous and inhomogeneous environments encountered in the bulk.

These intrinsic fluctuations can be probed and more information about the intrinsic dynamics of the system can be extracted directly either through the long time or multiple short time measurements. Interesting properties about molecular process such as folding of a molecule, conformational dynamics, and molecular recognition can be revealed through the analysis of single molecule time series. On the practical side, understanding the inherent signatures imbedded in the time series will be essential for molecular recognition, gene expression, drug discovery, DNA sequencing and molecular chip design.

The theme of this symposium is to decipher molecular complexity in dynamics and kinetics from protein functions at single molecule level to cellular networks, in terms of the underlying energy landscape, and complex network in conformational space. We will bring together researchers in different areas of studies such as

(1) protein folding, biomolecular recognition and interactions,
(2) single molecules experiments an theories,

and

(3) cellular networks as for the new direction in bridging chemistry and systems biology.

We are aiming to establish a coherent framework to understand the underlying physical mechanisms for function as well as global universal behavior on the biological systems.

About the Pacifichem Congress: The 2015 International Chemical Congress of Pacific Basin Societies (Pacifichem) is sponsored jointly by the American Chemical Society (ACS), the Canadian Society for Chemistry (CSC), the Chemical Society of Japan (CSJ), the New Zealand Institute of Chemistry (NZIC), the Royal Australian Chemical Institute (RACI), the Korean Chemical Society (KCS), and the Chinese Chemical Society (CCS). The American Chemical Society is the host society for the 2015 Congress. Pacifichem 2015 will be the seventh in the series of successful cosponsored scientific conferences of Pacific Basin Chemical Societies. Founded in 1984, these conferences have been held in Honolulu, Hawaii about every five years.

Venue and Date:
Our symposium sessions will be held in the Hawaii Convention Center. http://www.meethawaii.com/hawaii-convention-center.aspx
