In the past few decades protein engineering allowed to create artificial enzymes with great potential in medicine, biotechnology and other fields. In this symposium we will particularly focus on the study and engineering of proteins but also look at their evolution, namely the history of these proteins paving the way to unravel their mechanism. Different aspects of proteins will be discussed from a structural, biochemical, biophysical and bioinformatics prospective. The symposium will cover a broad range of expertise to allow a deep understanding of the mechanism and function of proteins but also on how to engineer and design them for new purposes. Overall, the main aim of this symposium will be to develop a strong network among the participants where especially young researchers can benefit.
