Berlin 3DSIG meeting in Berlin

BerlinI just came back from this year’s 3DSIG, a satellite meeting of the ISMB/ECCB conference focusing on structural bioinformatics and drug discovery applications. The programme was packed with fantastic talks and posters. I was inspired by Tom Blundell’s keynote talk and the historical perspective that gives you listening to his nearly 50-year record of top science.

Robert Preissner’s talk on the many uses of similarity search to characterise target space was brilliant. I am glad he has accepted our invitation to give a seminar at EBI soon. Another particularly interesting talk was by Michael Schroeder, who talked about his structure-based work on repurposing a herpes drug for cancer.
