abstract

An increasing number of organelles and biochemical
compartments in cells, which form by assembly
of proteins and RNA in condensed phases, have
been characterized in recent years. In the study of
such membraneless cell compartments, concepts
from polymer physics, soft matter physics and the
theory of liquid-liquid phase separation play a key
role. This meeting brings soft matter and polymer
researchers together with molecular and cell biologists
to discuss macromolecular phase separation
and the physical nature of protein condensates.
Topics include

Membraneless organelles and RNA-bodies
Phase transition of macromolecules in complex/crowded solutions
Active components and liquid-liquid phase separation
Disordered proteins
Non-equilibrium models of droplet-formation and segregation
