 Dates 21 Jul 2014 → 22 Aug 2014
[ID=604259] 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.

18.ESF | EMBO Symposium — Long regulatory RNAs
 Dates 13 Sep 2014 → 18 Sep 2014
[ID=606454] 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.

 Abstract SciGenom Research Foundation (SGRF), National Institute of Mental Health and Neuro Sciences (NIMHANS) & The Institute of Bioinformatics (IOB) are pleased to host the 2014 NextGen Genomics & Bioinformatics Technologies (NGBT) conference in Bangalore, India. In just over a decade, since the first human reference genome was completed for US$3 billion, the sequencing technologies have radically changed allowing human genome sequencing to be accomplished in a week for under US$1000. The next generation sequencing technologies over the past five years have enabled a large number of genomic studies that impact human health and disease. Also, this has made possible the growth of microbial, animal and plant genomics studies. While the data production has increased at a rapid pace, challenges in analyzing and interpreting the data remain. The NGBT conference will cover the recent advances in next generation sequencing (NGS) technologies, bioinformatics for NGS and translational applications of NGS in various areas of lifesciences including human health and medicine.

[ID=634169] 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.

55.EMBL Conference: Protein Synthesis and Translational Control
 Dates 09 Sep 2015 → 12 Sep 2015
[ID=637384] Go to top of page
 LocationHeidelberg, Germany
 Abstract Translational Control has become a major focus of attention in the field of gene regulation and extends to many fields including developmental biology, neurobiology, cell physiology and disease. The discovery of miRNAs opened a new frontier and has been complimented with the finding of new non-coding RNA molecules and the establishment of novel powerful high-throughput techniques, both of which will be central within the conference. With the increasing appreciation for the integration between different steps in the gene expression pathway, the conference will also explore the latest work on the interfaces between translational control and mRNA turnover, RNA localization and splicing/nonsense-mediated decay. The conference will continue to promote communication between experts in the field of translation with those from a scientifically related field that have traditionally held separate meetings on the structure and function of the ribosome. Finally, our biochemical understanding of the translation process is progressing rapidly, and is uncovering hidden layers of regulation including isoforms of translation initiation factors with distinct activities and initiation at non-AUG codons. The latest findings regarding these processes will be featured prominently within the conference. We thus believe that the conference promises to be timely, cutting-edge and of broad interest.
