NGP-net Winter School on computational methods for non-globular proteins - Brixen, Italy

As a part of the COST Action BM1405, NGP-net Winter School on computational methods for non-globular proteins, was held in Brixen (South Tyrol), Italy, from February 15th to February 19th, 2016.

Non-globular proteins, consisting of a various molecular phenomena have changed the structure–function paradigm in the general view of proteins. Recent studies suggest that NGPs are associated with human diseases, including cancer, cardiovascular disease, amyloidoses, neurodegenerative diseases, and diabetes, still a great number of NGPs lack functional annotation.

Winter School on computational methods for non-globular proteins consisted of lectures and practicals held by eminent experts in the field (Miguel Andrada, Norman Davey, Arne Elofsson, Zsuzsanna Dostanyi, Andrey Kajava, Vasilis Promponas, Marco Punta, Peter Tompa and  Salvador Ventura).  The lectures gave attendants of the winter school an insight into various experimental techniques used in the field and also into large number of databases for proteins. Practical part of the school focused on the analysis of biophysical properties of the given sequences, using specific search engines modelling tools and databases. Senior teaching assistant  from the Department for chemistry and biochemistry, Faculty of Veterinary Medicine in Zagreb, Luka Krstulović, PhD, participated in the workshop as FP7 VetMedZg project associate.
