Biophysics Workshop

Electrostatic Interactions and Biophysics

April 30 - May 2, 2004

The workshop will focus on the role of electrostatic interaction in biophysics. It will address the challenging theoretical problems of the strong Coulomb interaction, such as screening in the presence of strong correlations, charge inversion, attraction of likely charged objects, and reentrant condensation in systems of oppositely charged macroions. Applications of these problems to gene therapy and the structure of chromatin and viruses will be the center of attention.

The workshop will be held at the Radisson Hotel Metrodome. Further details can be found on the program page.
