It’s a great pleasure to announce the abstracts selected for oral presentation at the III br.BIO.fr:
– Jorge H Fernandez (UENF): Computer aided drug design of Integrin-specific inhibitors
– Francisco Lopes (UFRJ): Applying Hill equation to determine cooperative levels during Drosophila embryonic development
Welcome to the III br.BIO.fr symposium!
A RBPG tem como objetivo publicar estudos, debates e experiências sobre a Pós-Graduação no Brasil e no mundo e recebe artigos durante todo o ano. Confira mais informações em: http://ojs.rbpg.capes.gov.br
We are all please to inform that we were invited to be a part of the 5th LAPS meeting, this year, as a satellite event.
br.BIO.fr will be back on the 7th of november, in the beautiful and sunny Angra dos Reis (Rio de Janeiro). This time, the focus will be on proteins!
The deadline for abstract submission for poster presentation was extended until March 14th! Poster presentation is a great opportunity to interact with other scientists and establish new collaborations. Don’t miss this opportunity!

Is is a great pleasure to announce that Dr. Elisabeth Mintz will give a talk during th 2nd br.BIO.fr . Dr. Elisabeth is a member of the team “Biologie des Métaux (BioMet)” at the CEA Grenoble. Her group is studying prokaryotic and eukaryotic molecular and cellular mechanisms responsible for detoxification and homeostasis of several metals, including cadmium, copper, zinc, cobalt, nickel and iron.

Dr. Muriel Delepierre is the leader of the NMR of Biomolecules Unit at Pasteur Institut. Her research is mainly dedicated to understanding the function of macromolecules such as proteins, nucleic acids and oligosaccharides through the study of their structure, interactions and dynamics. To this end, her group use NMR, biophysical and biochemical techniques and work in collaboration with various groups from the Institut Pasteur and with laboratories in France and abroad.
The main projects currently being undertaken in her lab are: (i) Structural and functional studies of proteins involved in the active transport of nutrients in bacteria; (ii) The control of neuronal death and survival by the rabies virus glycoprotein; (iii) Structural and functional studies of NEMO, a regulatory protein of the NF-kB signaling pathway; (iv) Structural studies of antigenic determinants recognized by a protective monoclonal antibody, aimed at developing a vaccine against shigellosis; (v) Biosynthesis of the fungal cell wall and structural analysis of the RodA hydrophobin from Aspergillus fumigatus conidia; (vi) Putative transcription factors from hyperthermophilic-archaea and their viruses;(vii) Functional sub-domains ofBordetella pertussis adenylate cyclase CyaA toxin.

Thérèse Malliavin is a CNRS researcher working at the Unité de Bioinformatique Structurale, at Institut Pasteur. She currently works on bioinformatics applied to the NMR structure determination and to NMR spectral assignment, NMR structure calculation (participation to the development of ARIA: http://aria.pasteur.fr/) and Molecular dynamics of nucleic acids and proteins.
