Integrative structural biology is a powerful approach to understand biological macromolecular systems. By combining computational methods with structural science disciplines, spatial and temporal models of macromolecular targets in their in-situ context can be determined. The focus of this symposium is to introduce integrative structural biology to our structural sciences community. The fields of light microscopy, mass spectrometry, X-ray crystallography, NMR, cryo-EM, and computational methods will be highlighted. The topics will cover the best practices and current research toward building structural models across different resolution scales. This symposium will also explore how experimental and computational methods can be integrated to address conformational changes, flexibility, and dynamics in macromolecular structures.
