By Ivan Mura (auth.), Luis F. Castillo, Marco Cristancho, Gustavo Isaza, Andrés Pinzón, Juan Manuel Corchado Rodríguez (eds.)

This quantity compiles approved contributions for the second version of the Colombian Computational Biology and Bioinformatics Congress CCBCOL, after a rigorous evaluation strategy during which fifty four papers have been permitted for ebook from 119 submitted contributions. Bioinformatics and Computational Biology are parts of information that experience emerged as a result of advances that experience taken position within the organic Sciences and its integration with details Sciences. the growth of tasks regarding the learn of genomes has led the best way within the creation of titanic quantities of series information which has to be prepared, analyzed and saved to appreciate phenomena linked to residing organisms concerning their evolution, habit in several ecosystems, and the advance of purposes that may be derived from this analysis.

Results suggested a possible binding mechanism which could explain the in vivo evidence of formation of heterodimeric receptors EGFR-PDGFR. Keywords: PDGF-BB, EGFR, docking, Transactivation, interactions. 1 Introduction The human EGF receptor (EGFR) is a transmembral glycoprotein of 1186 amino acids [1,2], that belongs to the ErbB family 2 which consist of four members: The epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR, also referred to as ErbB1 or Her1),3 ErbB2 (p185Neu or Her2),4 ErbB3 (Her3)5 and ErbB4 (Her4),6 all of which have been identified to be either over-expressed, amplified or altered in a wide range of human epithelial tumours [3].

1 Capsid Assembly It is believed that coat protein (CP) subunits should carry instructions to form a particular type of capsid. In principle, the structure and the organization of the subunits obtained from the complete capsid structures can be used to decipher these instructions. Computational approaches have identified the repeating units (building blocks) of the assembly and any potential intermediates that may be formed during the course of capsid formation [2]. A substructure of n subunits was considered a likely intermediate or a preferred substructure during the course of assembly, when the association/binding energy of formation of the substructure was favored significantly over any other combinations of n subunit associations.

The specific packing between a few of them serves to regulate the level of hydration in the core of the protofibril [5]. Another study by Periole et al. used a similar but more refined methodology to study the structural determinants of the supramolecular organization of rhodopsin in bilayers [8]. They used a coarse-grain model to represent the 28 A. D´ıaz-Valle, G. Ch´ avez-Calvillo, and M. Carrillo-Tripp molecules in the system and defined a Virtual Bond Algorithm which improved the statistical sampling considerably.
