Workshop: Intrinsically Disordered Proteins
Workshop on Intrinsically Disordered Proteins
Keith Dunker, Indiana University
This workshop will provide an introduction to and overview of Intrinsically Disordered Proteins (IDPs), especially including the four topics listed below.
- Why don’t IDPs and IDP Regions fold?
- How common are IDPs and IDP regions?
- What are the functions of IDPs and IDP regions?
- Were IDPs and IDP regions critical for the evolution of eukaryotes and complex multicellular organisms?
- Q&A with Keith
It will be led by one of the founders of the field, Dr. Keith Dunker. After being drawn to the importance of IDPs in the 1990s, Dr. Dunker published some of the most highly cited papers on IDPs and had large influence in the research of these proteins. The workshop will highlight the current knowledge on these important class of proteins, and describe their role in the evolution of complex signaling in multicellular organisms.
