The International Organization for Biological Crystallization (IOBCr) is a non-profit, scientific organization for scientists who study the crystallization of biological macromolecules and develop crystallographic methodologies for their study. It was founded in 2002 to create a permanent organ for the organization of the International Conferences for the Crystallization of Biological Macromolecules (ICCBM). The goal is to facilitate the preparation of biological crystals necessary for the determination of the 3D architecture of biomolecules by crystallography. These 3D pictures provide a wealth of information that help understand how biomolecules act and interact in living organisms.
The IOBCr organizes International Conferences on the Crystallization of Biological Macro-molecules (ICCBM) every two years.
ICCBM17 will be held from October 29 to November 2, 2018, in Shanghai, China. Don't miss this event!
