3D-BioInfo Community Annual Meeting

Registration Date: 27-Sep-2019 to 01-Nov-2019
Date: 21-Nov-2019 to 22-Nov-2019

Contact: Stephanie Chapman

Structural bioinformatics has a broad impact across the life sciences and provides tools to archive, visualise, analyse, annotate, and predict the structure of biological macromolecules. Structural bioinformatics is traditionally very strong in Europe, offering many software tools, methodologies, and databases, as well as community-wide prediction challenges. Its applications cover research activities from structural biology to drug discovery and personalised medicine, which are all well represented within the national ELIXIR nodes.

The 3D-BioInfo Community was approved by ELIXIR in May 2019. This meeting will be the first official meeting of the community to plan major activities and to identify research groups wishing to contribute to these activities.




The workshop will begin at 12pm.

  • Plenary session and overview of 3D-BioInfo plans
  • Parallel breakout sessions on the four activity areas
  • Discussion on a possible Protein Engineering ‘Activity’


  • Report back from the breakout sessions
  • Keynote lecture from John Briggs
  • Discussion on interaction with the Instruct Community
