The HESI Protein Allergens, Toxins, and Bioinformatics (PATB) Committee is hosting a virtual workshop focusing on the state of the science for a wide array of protein toxins classes, MOAs, structures, activity, and general biology. Additionally, the workshop will cover the bioinformatics analysis of protein toxins and how to leverage computational biology for protein toxins identification/characterization, with in silico approaches.

The Protein Toxins Workshop will serve the dual purpose of learning from the experts in the field about the state of the science as well as assessing the translation of knowledge to practical applications, e.g., into weight-of-evidence approaches for the safety assessment of biotechnology products. The workshop aims to gain insight into how feasible/useful (or not) a protein toxin database could be in risk assessment/product development. This meeting will serve as an informational platform about HESI and will demonstrate the advances in protein toxins research, presented by international experts, and will help inform the development of novel approaches for the identification and classification of potential toxicity risk in novel proteins.
