Biophysical Aspects of Protein Folding.
April 2 until April 6 1997 Storlien, Sweden
The 1997 Winterschool in Biophysics was held in
Storlien, Sweden from April 2 until April 6. The theme of this school was Biophysical
Aspects of protein folding. The school was organized as a part of Stockholm Graduate school in
biophysics a joint program between the Karolinska Institute, the Royal Institute of
Technology and Stockholm University.
The school contained lectures from 8 distinguished speakers as well as by the
participating students. Further, most of the students presented posters, the abstracts of
most of the talks as well as posters can be found in this journal. Both theoretical and
experimental aspects of protein folding was tought at the school.
We are grateful for the financial contributions from, the Wenner Gren Foundation,
Pharmacia & UpJohn and from Stockholm Biophysical Graduate School.
