The aim of the symposium is as follows:
 Due to the technological breakthrough, single molecules level studies
 become available. The advantage of single molecules is that no ensemble
 average is needed. Single molecules are sensitive probes to the
 environments. The kinetic schemes can be mapped out and conformational
 dynamics can be probed directly without ambiguity of homogeneous and
 inhomogeneous environments encountered in the bulk. These intrinsic
 fluctuations can be probed and more information about the intrinsic
 dynamics of the system can be extracted directly either through the long
 time or multiple short time measurements. Interesting properties about
 molecular process such as folding of a molecule, conformational
 dynamics, and molecular recognition can be revealed through the analysis
 of single molecule time series.
 
 On the practical side, understanding the inherent signatures imbedded in
 the time series will be essential for molecular recognition, gene
 expression, drug discovery, DNA sequencing and molecular chip design.
 The theme of this symposium is to decipher molecular complexity in
 dynamics and kinetics from protein functions at single molecule level to
 cellular networks, in terms of the underlying energy landscape, and
 complex network in conformational space. We will bring together
 researchers in different areas of studies such as (1) protein folding,
 biomolecular recognition and interactions, (2) single molecules
 experiments an theories, and (3) cellular networks as for the new
 direction in bridging chemistry and systems biology. We are aiming to
 establish a coherent framework to understand the underlying physical
 mechanisms for function as well as global universal behavior on the
 biological systems.
