Mechanical forces in living matter, biological motors, elastic properties of biomolecules are among the central themes of modern biophysics. On the one hand, single-molecule mechanical measurements are valuable tools for study of biomolecules. On the other hand, mechanical effects play a profound role in a wide variety of biological phenomena, ranging from gene regulation to cell motility.
This workshop brings together theorists and experimentalist working on various problems in molecular biophysics, with a special emphasis on mechanical properties and mechanical forces in biomolecular systems, and their relationship to biological function.
A travel support will be provided to junior participants. A limited number of contributed talks will be included in the scientific program. Please submit your abstract by May 15 and register by June 1.
