[ID=559534] Go to top of page
 LocationAlicante, Spain
 Abstract Genetic recombination provides an important mechanism for the repair of chromosome breaks caused by DNA damage or replication fork demise. Defects in the recombination process have been linked to cancer predisposition, in particular breast cancers caused by mutations in BRCA1, BRCA2 and PALB2, and also acute leukemias associated with the rare genetic disease Fanconi anemia. Understanding precisely how recombination occurs is of interest to workers in the fields of meiosis, DNA repair, replication, chromosome architecture and interactions, and chromatin biology. This meeting celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Holliday model for recombination.

[ID=581368] Go to top of page
 LocationSalamanca, Portugal
 Abstract The accumulation and exploitation of large-scale data bases prompts for new computational technology and for research into these issues. In this context, many widely successful computational models and tools used by biologists in these initiatives, such as clustering and classification methods for gene expression data, are based on Computer Science/ Artificial Intelligence (CS/AI) techniques. In fact, these methods have been helping in tasks related to knowledge discovery, modeling and optimization tasks, aiming at the development of computational models so that the response of biological complex systems to any perturbation can be predicted. The International Conference on Practical Applications of Computational Biology & Bioinformatics (PACBB) aims to promote the interaction among the scientific community to discuss applications of CS/AI with an interdisciplinary character, exploring the interactions between sub-areas of CS/AI, Bioinformatics, Chemoinformatics and Systems Biology. Brand new ideas in these fields are sought, as well as substantial and relevant revisions and actualizations of previously presented work, project summaries and PhD thesis presented or not.

 Dates 02 Jul 2014 → 06 Jul 2014
[ID=556470] Go to top of page
 LocationSalzburg, Austria
 Abstract The shifting perspective from a read-only-memory genome with copying errors to a read-and-write genome with competent change operators is fundamental: For decades it was assumed that driving force of evolution is mutation (error) and selection. Now it is recog-nized that errors cannot explain genetic novelty and complexity. A variety of RNA based agents play essential roles in evolution and regulation in all DNA/Protein based life: basic non-coding RNA secondary structures built of (paired) stems and (not-paired) loops. RNA stem-loop swarms such as group I introns, group II introns, viroids, viral (RNA viruses, retrotransposons, LTRs, non-LTRs) and subviral networks (SINEs, LINEs, Alus) cooperate within cellular genomes as modular tools with its abundance of regulatory functions. Some noncoding RNAs built complementary con-sortia such as rRNAs, tRNAs, spliceosomes, editosomes, and other RNPs. Additionally counterbalancing modules such as toxin/antitoxin (TA) -, restriction/modification (RM) -, and insertion/deletion (INDEL) - modules assure identity (self/non-self) of cells, tissues, organs and even organisms

Infectious RNAgents manipulate host genomes for (i) selfish replicative purposes or (ii) persistent coevolutionary integration. The latter in most cases remain as defectives, i.e. abundance of parts that now serve as coopted modular tools for cellular needs or as full function elements that regulate complex developmental processes such as pla-centation in mammals. Also mixed consortia of RNA- and DNA virus-derived parts that integrate in host genomes have been found.

All fine-tuned steps and substeps of key cellular processes such as gene expression, transcription, translation, DNA recombination and repair, epigenetic imprinting (memory, learning), as well as various forms of innate and adaptive immunity are essen-tially constituted by such natural genetic content operators.

 Topics This symposium assembles approximately 50 experts (30 talks, 20 Posters) from different fields to discuss a fundamental new understanding of genetic novelty, code-generating, genome-formatting factors, multi-use nature for RNAgents and behavioral motifs of RNA-consortia. The small number of participants guarantees a relaxed and inspiring at-mosphere for presentation and discussion.

[ID=604215] Go to top of page
 LocationSanta Barbara, United States
 Abstract Microbial life is considerably more complex than is commonly appreciated. Far from merely proliferating exponentially until nutrients are exhausted, microbes engage in a wide range of adaptive behaviors. For example, the diauxie phenomenon associated with the nutrient induced shift of bacterial metabolism was at the heart of Monod and Jacob’s discovery of regulated gene expression. Much like cells in the multicellular organisms, microbes – bacteria and yeast for the purposes of this course – can exist in different phenotypic states. Microbes can switch between different phenotypes and the phenotypic states can persist through cell division thanks to the existence of epigenetic memory. The mechanisms of the epigenetic memory are remarkably diverse, from hysteretic transcriptional regulation circuits to metabolic circuits to DNA methylation and are a subject of much current research, focusing in particular on the role of inductive signals and stochastic fluctuations in switching between states. Interestingly, epigenetic switching coexists with mechanisms of genetic switching via genomic rearrangement (phase variation) or recurrent mutations bridging in a very interesting way the phenotypic dynamics of microbial cells and evolutionary dynamics of microbial colonies. Quantitative exploration of these phenomena will be the central themes of the course.

 Abstract ECCB'14 is the key European computational biology event in 2014 gathering scientists working at the intersection of a broad range of disciplines including computer science, mathematics, biology, and medicine. New challenges are emerging today in these fields with the recent advances in low-cost ultra-fast sequencing, bio-imaging and big-data approaches. Databases and software are evolving especially rapidly. Nonetheless, new algorithms are still required to improve computing with massive biological or biomedical data. Indeed, multi-scale integrative analyses are struggling to deal with the enormous complexity of biological systems modeling and the "data deluge" that results from next-generation sequencing technologies.

[ID=606465] Go to top of page
 LocationPultusk, Poland
 Abstract Humans and worms show striking phenotypic differences despite the fact that both genomes encode a comparable number of protein coding genes (~20,000). These observations suggest that biological complexity cannot be accounted for by protein coding genes alone. Emerging data from different areas of investigation suggest that the information which programs biological complexity is entwined in noncoding regulatory RNA. Powerful novel sequencing technologies have enabled the discovery of an entire new world of long and short noncoding RNAs. Regulatory noncoding RNAs play an established role in epigenetic mechanisms such as parental imprinting or X chromosome inactivation, cutting-edge results, however, indicate a much broader impact. Recent evidence suggests that noncoding regulatory RNAs are involved in disease, development and aging. The expression of several tumour suppressor genes is controlled by both small and long regulatory RNAs and specific noncoding RNAs are indicative for tumour development and disease progression. In addition, antisense RNAs play a role in an inherited form of anaemia and in Alzheimer’s disease. It comes as no surprise that regulatory RNAs raise the justified promise of seminal therapeutic applications.
