Track 1: Structural Biology

Structural biology is defined as a branch of molecular biology which deals with biophysics and biochemistry regarding the molecular structure of biological macromolecules. It also provides information about their structural alterations and how it affects their function. This process of determination of structures of proteins, nucleic acids may take years as the shape, size and assemblies of these molecules may be altering the function. Biologists show great interest as they deal with the determination of the function of macromolecules.

Track 2: Determination of 3D structures

Biomolecules are too small to observe in detail, even with the most advanced light microscopes. These may include macro and micro molecules along with natural products. These may be endogenous and exogenous in nature. Structural biologists generally use these methods to determine the structures of identical molecules in a huge quantity at a time. Scientists use these methods to study the “real states” of the biomolecules. Some of the best methods include X-ray crystallography, Cryo-Electron Microscopy and Nuclear Magnetic Resonance.

This is a cost effective approach for determining the protein structure. The computational prediction methods, such as initiating fragment assembly, advanced fold recognition, composite approaches, and molecular docking are regularly applied in recent times to expand our understanding of protein structures. Nevertheless, predicted structures are not given the same credits as their experimental counterparts.  Hybrid approach is a channel to overcome these disadvantages, by incorporating limited experimental measurements, reliable structures can be computed and unlikely predictions are eliminated. The current researches are showing great interest in this method of approach.

Track 8: Structural Biology in Cell Signalling

Generally cells communicate by the release of chemical signals. They are often secreted from the cell and released into the extracellular space. Regulation of gene expression comprises a comprehensive range of mechanisms that are used by cells to regulate the production of specific gene products, and is familiarly termed as gene regulation. Sophisticated programs of gene expression are extensively observed in biology, for example to trigger developmental pathways, adapt to new food sources, or respond to environmental stimuli. Eventually the gene expressions can be adjusted, starting from transcription, initiation to post translation modification of a protein.

Track 9: Molecular Modelling  

Molecular modelling  constitutes all the hypothetical methods and computational procedures used to mimic the behaviour of macromolecules. These techniques are used in diverse fields of drug designcomputational chemistry, materials science and computational biology for studying macromolecular systems ranging from small to large biological systems. In order to simulate the interactions between the atoms, for further understanding of the properties, molecular simulation uses powerful techniques. Such simulations involve methods that range from very detailed quantum mechanical calculations on atoms to coarse-grained classical dynamics of large groups of molecules on a timescale of milliseconds or longer.

Tract 10: Molecular Dynamics

Molecular dynamics (MD) deals with the study of physical movements of the atoms and molecules using computer simulation method, so it is referred to as one of the type of N-body simulation. The atoms and molecules are allowed to interact for a fixed period of time, giving a view of the dynamic evolution of the system. The trajectories of atoms and molecules are commonly determined by solving them numerically using Newton’s equations of motion for a group of collaborating particles. The forces between the particles and their potential energies are calculated using inter-atomic potentials or molecular mechanics force fields.

Track 11: Structural Biology in Drug Design

Drug design is an innovative process to asset new medication based on the knowledge of biological target. Drug is most commonly a small molecule that inhibits or activates the function of a biomolecule, which in turn outcomes in a therapeutic benefit to the patient. Drug design commonly but not essentially relies on computational techniques. This type of modelling is often mentioned to as computer-aided drug design. Drug design that depends on the knowledge of the 3D structure of the target is known as structure-based drug design. The main methods available for drug design are structure based drug design and ligand based drug design.

Track 12: Frontiers in Structural Biology

The main focus of a structural biologist is protein structure determination and drug design. Protein plays an important role in human body. Living things would not exist without proteins. The proteins are usually involved in all forms of expressions of the living organism. Most of the proteins are evolved in providing structure to the cell while the others tend to bin and carry vital molecules all through the body. Some proteins are involved in biochemical reactions in the body which are termed as enzymes. Others are involved in muscle contractions and immunity. Structure determination of proteins has always been a challenging filed. The complex areas in the field include viruses, pathogens, membrane proteins and signalling pathways. Novel progressions are being done in the arenas of nano-patternig and multi-scale modelling of cell signalling proteins.

Glance at Market of Structural Biology:

The structural biology market is expected to reach USD 13.1 billion by 2025, according to a new study by Grand View Research, Inc. Moreover, increasing drug resistance coupled with the high drug attrition rate is engendering the requirement for extensive R&D activities, which is presumed to boost the adoption of structural biology & molecular modeling techniques in the drug discovery and development process. This is expected to serve as an efficient approach in fast tracking the development of drugs with high potency.

There is significant reduction in the cost due to increase in molecular modelling techniques. This is due to the fact that prediction software identifies possible adverse reactions and determines drug efficacy and toxicity in the pre-clinical stages, thereby reducing the probability of drug failure at the later stages.

Further key findings from the study suggest:

  • SaaS & standalone modeling held the largest share of the tools segment in 2015 owing to extensive utilization of computer-assisted structuring and modeling techniques in R&D
  • In 2015, North America dominated the global structural biology & molecular modeling techniques market owing to the presence of a wide number of established pharmaceutical companies extensively involved in the use of silico tool. Asia Pacific is expected to grow at an exponential CAGR owing to favorable government initiatives supporting research activities and the increasing trend of outsourcing drug development by the developed economies

What People Say....

The 9th International Conference on Structural Biology at Zurich, Switzerland was indeed a memorable experience -- combining advances in macromolecular X-ray crystallography and nuclear magnetic resonance with other more recent techniques such as cryo-electron microscopy, optical tweezers and atomic force microscopy – to study the structure and dynamics of nucleic acids, proteins and lipids in biological systems. The meeting showed considerable comradeship that exists between scientists in these many different areas, and was held in a top-notch hotel in a very beautiful city. It was one of the best meetings I have ever attended in recent years.

Speaker

Henry M Sobell University of Rochester USA

The 9th meeting exposed a series of different technologies currently used from structural biology and the testing of structural insights for different biological systems. NMR, cryoEM, X-ray crystallography, SAXS, AFM, high-resolution FM, single molecule imaging, computational biological, proteomic analysis, etc are all connected to functional analysis so that deeper and new insights are revealed. The meeting has many interesting talks and represents an excellent showcase of new frontiers in structural biology. I am expecting the next meeting to be even more exciting.
