Theoretical Approaches for the Genome and the proteins (TAGp 2010)

20 - 22 October 2010

LAPTH, Annecy-le-Vieux, France

organised by the

Poster of the conference


This event aims at bringing in contact people from different domains (physics, mathematics, biology, computer science) concerned with various theoretical and experimental aspects of the genome and of the structure of proteins. There are two precedents TAG06 and TAG08. TAGp 2010 expands towards new topics:

  • MACROMOLECULAR ASSEMBLY (proteins and nucleic acids)

    As high quality experimental data are becoming available today, it is important to realize how theoretical backgrounds are applied for the physical description of interacting many-body systems and how they can provide new developments in experimental biological systems. TAGp 2010 provides the environment for wide discussion among scientists of different expertises.

    The TAGp participants cover an extremely large spectrum of skills and expertises. They are interested and ready to listen, discover and share this huge variety of research fields. For the TAGp meeting to be successfull, a particular attention has to be given to the clarity and the simplicity of the presentations (seminars and posters).
