The organization of proteins and other macromolecules into functional complexes is a central concept in biology. The complexes range from well-ordered symmetric assemblies with repeating units to heterogeneous multi-protein assemblies that display variable composition and stoichiometry, and range in size from many megadaltons to under 100 kilodaltons. This symposium features a collection of talks that will present progress on using NMR spectroscopy, X-ray crystallography, cryo-electron microscopy and computational modeling to unravel the structural and functional organization of a variety of biologically interesting protein complexes.
