VIZIER / SPINE2 Workshop on Structural Virology

Paul Tucker-2
Dear Virologist,

Registrations are now being accepted for the

*VIZIER / SPINE2 Workshop on “Structural Virology*

taking place from 14th - 16th July  2008, in Vienna, Austria

This workshop will cover recent advances in our understanding of viral 
entry, assembly, replication and pathogenesis principally, but not 
exclusively, based upon information derived from structural studies. The 
planned sessions are on viral assembly, double-stranded RNA viruses, the 
flavivirus replication machinery, the coronavirus replication machinery, 
virus/host interactions including aspects of viral entry, negative 
strand RNA viruses and viruses of prokaryotes and archea.

In addition to the invited speakers, oral presentations will be selected 
from the submitted abstracts. The sessions are not exclusive and any 
topic relevant to the structural biology of viruses will be considered 
for a poster or oral presentation. For this reason early registration 
and abstract submission is strongly encouraged.

The workshop is part of the training and dissemination activities of the 
Vizier and Spine2Complexes projects. The Department of Biomolecular 
Structural Chemistry, Max F. Perutz Labs at University of Vienna is a 
Training and Dissemination Centre for the EU 6th Framework VIZIER 
project ( <>).
