Neurocypres workshops and meetings
The third annual meeting, Bergamo (Italy) May 2011, provided exciting novel structural data on ligand-gated ion channels.
Three Neurocypres workshops
The first workshop(NKI, Sept 2008) was dedicated to the production of proteins in heterologous expression systems (section 1). Conclusions were drawn about the various systems in use and in particular protocols for expression in different cell types were exchanged and discussed.
In the second workshop (VU, Dec 2008) the various approaches for drug screening were discussed (section 3). The use of computational analysis tools for CLR sequence alignment and in silico screening were discussed. Also, this workshop was used to plan and further align the various projects on protein engineering thereby enabling future screening possibilities.
The third workshop was about high throughput methods (UCAM, Nov 2009).
