2nd Zing Enzymes, Coenzymes and Metabolic Pathways Conference 2013
New Frontiers in Enzymology: Enzyme Complexes and Regulation
This conference will highlight both fundamental and applied aspects of contemporary, state-of-the-art enzymology emphasizing enzyme complexes and the role of protein/protein interactions. In particular, the conference will offer sessions exploring new discoveries in metalloenzyme biochemistry, enzymology of nucleic acid replication and processing, multi-protein complex enzymatic systems, evolution of enzyme structure/function, and allosteric interactions in regulation, using a variety of methods such as mechanistic enzymology, enzyme dynamics, structural biology… The conference will feature lectures by many established leaders in the field, as well as emerging researchers, and offer a stimulating and collegial atmosphere for discussion, all in a beautiful Caribbean location.

Abstract Submission Deadlines
Playa del Carmen, Mexico.
Located adjacent to the spectacular eco-archeological Xcaret Park in the heart of the Riviera Maya, the Occidental Grand Xcaret offers delegates the chance to exchange ideas and develop collaborations with colleagues in the tranquil setting of the Caribbean Sea.
Xcaret Park is Mexico’s most famous eco-archeological attraction. It is a beautiful place full of culture and nature where visitors can enjoy amazing aquatic activities, cultural attractions and shows. Xcaret Park is filled with the natural beauty of the Caribbean Sea and the magic of a thousand year- old civilization. It is the perfect place to experience the best of Mexico.
