Welcome from the Chairs

Dear Colleagues,

This third edition of the International Conference on Symmetry, supported by Ben-Gurion University of the Negev and the MDPI journal Symmetry, will be held on the Ben-Gurion University Marcus Family Campus, in Israel, from 30 August to 4 September, 2020.

We welcome interdisciplinary interaction between different fields of science and we intend to follow in the footsteps of Hermann Weyl, a man responsible for important progress in the field of symmetry in math and physics. He expressed great interest in symmetry in many additional fields of science, as explored in his eye opening book "Symmetry". As expressed by Weyl, symmetry is a fundamental phenomenon in nature and all sciences. This event, therefore, aims to promote the discussion and exchange of cutting edge knowledge and ideas of symmetry in a variety of subjects ranging from physics, chemistry, mathematics, and computer science, to biology.

Symmetry 2020 is a follow up to two very successful conferences, entitled "Symmetry 2017—The First International Conference on Symmetry", held in October 2017 in Barcelona, Spain, and "Symmetry 2019—The Second International Conference on Symmetry" in Benasque, Spain.

Registration is now open. A first draft agenda and further updates will be sent out over the next months. Please go to the website to register and check all the important details regarding venue, travel and accommodation. Sciforum will handle all abstract submissions and conference award applications.

Organizational questions and sponsorship opportunities can be directed to the Secretariat ([email protected]), and content questions should go to Prof. Eduardo Guendelman.

We look forward to seeing you in Beer-Sheva, Israel in August 2020.

Best regards

Eduardo Guendelman

Structural biology aims to understand the chemistry, interactions and basic biological functions governed by the three-dimensional structure of macromolecules. Knowledge of the 3-D structure of a protein can provide enormous basic scientific insight into the function of that protein, facilitating elucidation of its biochemical function and its interactions with other proteins, RNA, DNA, or membranes in the cell. X-ray crystallography and cryo-EM are the most prolific techniques for the structural analysis of proteins and protein complexes. Using X-ray crystallography and cryo-EM, we can now realize to the high-resolution range, up to atomic or even electronic details, enabling a full coverage understanding of macromolecules and their interactions. Current Projects 1. Structural studies of magnetosome associated proteins. Magnetotactic bacteria are a phylogenetically and morphologically diverse group of microorganisms that share an ability to create magnetosomes, biomineral organelles that sense geomagnetic fields and aid the bacteria to align themselves accordingly. The magnetosome organelle comprises aligned 30-50 nm iron oxide magnetite crystals, surrounded by a lipid bilayer membrane vesicle. There are several types of magnetosome-forming proteins all encoded by genes within a genomic island common to magnetotactic bacteria. These proteins include a set of incorporated membrane proteins that facilitate vesicle formation, vesicle localization and iron transport and a set of proteins that control magnetite formation and size. In my lab, we are tackling the structure-function relationships of these proteins. 2. Structural studies of cation diffusion facilitators (CDF), a special family of cation transporters. Cation diffusion facilitator (CDF) proteins constitute a group of heavy metal ion efflux transporters that participate in metal ion homeostasis and can be found in all domains of life. Members of the CDF protein family – functional in their dimeric form and comprising a transmembrane domain (TMD) and a cytoplasmic C-terminal domain (CTD) – exploi
