Default First African Structural Biology Conference




Are you interested in RATIONAL DRUG DESIGN?


X-ray crystallographic visualization of an inhibitor which is a =
potential drug in the active site of an enzyme done by a group of South =
African researchers

The First African Structural Biology Conference
Macromolecular Structure, Health and Biotechnology in Developing =
Countries

The Wilderness, South Africa
24-27 October 2006


The First African Structural Biology (FASB) conference will be held in =
The Wilderness, South Africa. Structural Biology is fundamental to =
rational drug design and central to the drug discovery process. We are =
fortunate in having a number of speakers who have been successful in =
this area and who have applied their minds to the diseases of the =
developing world.
