Biological sequence variation: from statistical modeling to structure, function, and evolutionary dynamics

Organized by Simona Cocco and Martin Weigt

In the course of evolution RNA and protein sequences undergo mutations. The statistics of those mutations and of their correlations reflects the structural and functional constraints exerted on the biomolecules. A fundamental challenge is to extract and exploit this information from rapidly growing sequence databases. The goal of the workshop is to gather scientists involved in the study of coevolution in biomolecules (proteins and RNA), from the points of view of sequence analysis, structural prediction, and evolutionary dynamics. Those fields are at the crossroads of molecular, structural, and evolutionary biology, biochemistry, statistical inference, statistical physics, bioinformatics. We believe that our workshop will be a unique opportunity for experts in those different communities, for theoreticians as well as for experimentalists, to meet, to present their fields of research and recent results, and to foster fruitful exchanges.
