 Dates 01 Oct 2014 → 03 Oct 2014
[ID=612991] Go to top of page
 LocationChicago, United States
 Abstract In order to develop a complete understanding of a biological system, information must cover multiple dimensions. Over the last ten years, we have witnessed decisive advances in bioinformatics, genome sequencing, and high-throughput technologies, that have highlighted the need for approaching biological systems as a whole. Metabolic diseases, including type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease, as well as cancer, involve complex genetic, molecular, and environmental interactions, and systems-based approaches have proven to be instrumental in tackling this complexity by integrating genomic, molecular, and physiological data. This meeting will provide a unique opportunity to bring together experts in systems biology and metabolism to discuss how ‘Omics’ approaches can be exploited in an effort to understand the perturbations that take place in the pathogenesis of metabolic diseases. We will discuss novel approaches for studying metabolic alterations in a high-throughput scale and explore how epigenomics, non-coding RNAs, and environmental factors control metabolic pathways in disease settings.

[ID=612981] Go to top of page
 LocationBerkeley, United States
 Abstract Throughout most of the latter half of the 20th century, research on RNAs focused predominantly on their key role as intermediaries between DNA and protein. It was Jacob and Monod who originally proposed that RNAs, because of their intrinsic specificity, might be the elusive factors that instruct genes to turn on and off. In the end, these regulatory factors turned out to be proteins, now commonly referred to as transcription factors. Yet, with the discovery of small RNAs in the 1990s, a wave of new research on RNAs has resurrected the idea that RNAs can also serve regulatory functions.

 LocationPlaya Del Carmen, United Kingdom
 Abstract Nucleic acids – DNA and RNA – encode and transmit genetic information in the cell. But they are also structural, regulatory, and can even behave like enzymes. DNA is a repository of genetic information and must be accurately copied once and only once in each cell cycle. Structurally it has to be packaged into chromosomes yet accessible when required. DNA is subjected to recombination that creates diversity and leads to evolution, while it must remain intact and undergoes repair when damaged. RNA by contrast is the ‘working substance’ of genetics and a truly versatile molecule. It is a messenger that goes between DNA and protein, the scaffold for building complex functional machines such as the ribosome, a molecular switch responding to small molecules, and a key player in complex regulatory events. RNA can even accelerate chemical reactions by a million fold or more. Understanding processes involving DNA and RNA at the molecular and chemical level is the major theme of this conference.

49.Keystone Symposia: PI 3-Kinase Signaling Pathways in Disease
 Dates 13 Jan 2015 → 18 Jan 2015
[ID=632747] Go to top of page
 LocationVancouver, BC, Canada
 Abstract The PI3K-Akt-mTOR signaling pathway is one of the primary mechanisms for controlling cell growth, survival, and motility in response to intracellular signaling and extracellular cues. This meeting brings together scientists and clinicians from academia and industry to discuss the opportunities and liabilities of targeting the PI3K and related pathways in disease, drawing on human pathophysiology and genetics, preclinical models and clinical data with PI3K pathway inhibitors. A joint meeting on Integrating Metabolism and Tumor Biology will enhance opportunities for interdisciplinary interactions.
 Topics biochemistry, cancer, immunology, cell biology, drug discovery

51.Keystone Symposia: Mitochondria, Metabolism and Heart Failure
 Dates 27 Jan 2015 → 01 Feb 2015
[ID=632752] Go to top of page
 LocationSanta Fe, NM, United States
 Abstract Understanding mitochondrial pathophysiology and identifying ways to ameliorate mitochondrial dysfunction is critical to therapy for cardiovascular disease. The objectives of this meeting are: 1) To mechanistically connect the fundamental biology of metabolism and mitochondrial function with the pathogenesis of heart failure, a major cause of morbidity and mortality in the world; and 2) To increase basic understanding of metabolism and mitochondrial function using observations in cardiac muscle, a traditional platform for these studies. Running in parallel with a meeting on “Diabetes and Metabolic Dysfunction,” the meeting will examine metabolism, mitochondrial function and heart failure in an integrated context and in the depth required to critically examine existing paradigms.
 Topics cardiovascular, biochemistry, cell biology, metabolic diseases, mitochondria, diabetes, metabolic dysfunction, heart function, heart failure

52.Keystone Symposia – DNA Replication & Recombination
 Dates 01 Mar 2015 → 06 Mar 2015
[ID=634081] Go to top of page
 LocationWhistler, BC, Canada
 Abstract DNA replication is a fundamental process for all cells and as such is subject to exquisite cell cycle control and integration with other key cellular processes. Although recent advances have improved our understanding of a number of the key steps and transactions that govern DNA replication and recombination, our knowledge of the pathways that coordinate replication and repair remains incomplete. Given the intimate relationship between DNA replication and recombination and their importance for genome stability, this meeting will be held jointly with the Keystone Symposia on Genome Stability and DNA Repair.
 Topics genetics, genomics, transcription, translation, expression, biochemistry, cell biology
