Conference: UColorado_Denver.ProteinEvolution.Feb7-9

SMBE Satellite Meeting on Mechanisms of Protein Evolution II
We are pleased to announce the SMBE Satellite Meeting on Mechanisms of

Protein Evolution II: Thermodynamics, Phylogenetics, and Structure

(MPEII 2013), to take place at the University of Denvers

Anschutz Medical Campus, February 7-9, 2013.
The meeting aims to broadly cover the interface of protein evolutionary

mechanisms, models of amino acid substitution, genomics/systems biology

and phylogenetics. Topics also include adaptation, coevolution,

convergence, neutral processes including mutation, prediction of

folding, prediction of mutational effects, the influence of

protein-protein interactions on protein evolution, and the interaction

of next-gen sequencing and model development. This is a small meeting,

with plenty of opportunity for interaction. Talks by students as well as

more senior scientists are encouraged, and there will be a poster

session this year in addition to talks. This meeting is also partially

sponsored by BMC and the UC Denver Department of

& Genetics, Program in Bioscience,

and Consortium for Comparative Genomics.
Confirmed invited speakers include:

Belinda Chang, University of Toronto

Andy Clark, Cornell University

Richard Goldstein, National Institute of Medical Research (UK)

Nicolas Lartillot, University of Montreal

David Liberles, University of Wyoming

Michael Lynch, University

James McInerney, National University of Ireland-Maynooth

Mary OConnell, Dublin City University

David Pollock, University of Colorado School of Medicine

Jeff Thorne, State University

Naomi Ward, University of Wyoming
More information and registration can be found at
http://www.proteinevolution.org. The early registration deadline is

December 15, 2012. A ski trip at Copper Mountain (CO) is being planned

for attendees in the day(s) that follow the meeting. We hope you can

join us in Denver for this event.
David Pollock, James McInerney, and David Liberles
