Summer School 2019 "Protein evolution"

Greetings from the International Summer School on “Protein Evolution: from Environmental Adaptations to Biotechnological Applications”!

We would like to introduce the upcoming edition of International Summer School on Protein Evolution (SSPE 2019) to be held at Stazione Zoologica Anton Dohrn from 24th to 26thJuly 2019 in the charming city of Naples.
Please take a look at the preliminary programme:

This course is designed for PhD students and early-career researchers aiming at acquiring an interdisciplinary understanding of concepts and methods for the investigations of protein structure, function, and evolution, with insights into environmental adaptations and their potential biotechnological applications.
Admission to the course will be made on a first come, first served basis and the number of participants will be limited to 22.

The course program integrates theoretical lectures with hands-on practical tutorials on molecular evolution, sequence data manipulation and alignment, protein structure, molecular modelling, docking analysis, and molecular evolution. Participants are particularly encouraged to work on their own laptop.

Attending the SSPE at the Stazione Zoologica Anton Dohrn in Naples, you will have the benefit of enjoying an exciting experience in a highly stimulating research environment and in one of the most inspiring city in the world.

Detailed information on the program of our course and online registration form for the SSPE 2019 are available at the following link:

Looking forward to having you as a host, please do not hesitate to contact us at if you need any further assistance.
