Protein Modelling and Structure-Based Function Prediction
ID
784501
Start date
01 Jun 2016
Location
Liverpool, United Kingdom
Abstract
Protein function ultimately depends on protein structure, but experimental methods for characterising protein structure can never keep pace with the genome-driven deluge of sequence data. Plugging the gap are bioinformatics methods which can predict structures either by exploiting known structures as templates (homology modelling) or without that information (fragment-based ab initio methods covariance-based algorithms). An impressive diversity of bioinformatics methods can be used to extract maximum value from structures, both experimental and modelled.

Aimed at participants from graduate level onwards with no prior experience of modelling but a good understanding of protein structure principles and terminology, this event offers training in both modelling and structure-based functional inference.

Abstract
This FASEB Science Research Conference discusses genome engineering and new technologies for the precise manipulation of genes and genomes in cellula and in vivo. In addition to its utility for advancing our understanding of basic biology, genome engineering has numerous real-world applications, ranging from correction of disease-causing mutations in humans to engineering plants that better provide fuel, food and industrial raw materials. The first clinical trials and patient treatments using genome engineering approaches are now a reality. The scope of this meeting is expansive, encompassing multiple approaches for modifying genomes – from transgenesis and gene targeting to the creation of synthetic genomes. The experimental models featured include bacteria, fungi, model organisms (e.g.—Drosophila, C. elegans, zebrafish, mice, rats), plants, humans, and animals including livestock. We anticipate that this diversity of approaches and experimental systems will create a stimulating meeting environment that will enable new insights and advance the field.

21st International Chromosome Conference
ID
760359
Dates
10 Jul 2016 - 13 Jul 2016
Location
Foz do Iguaçu, Brazil
Abstract
The International Chromosome Conferences (ICC) originated from the Oxford Chromosome Conferences, inaugurated by C.D. Darlington and K.R. Lewis in 1964, 1967 and 1970. The Chromosome Conferences got an international status after the 4th edition held in Jerusalem, Israel (1972), and followed a schedule of tri-annual meetings in Leiden, The Netherlands (1974), Helsinki, Finland (1977), Oxford, England (1980), Lubeck, Germany (1983), Marseille, France (1986), Uppsala, Sweden (1989), Edinburgh, Great Britain (1992), El Escorial, Madrid, Spain (1995), Ancona, Italy (1998), Wurzburg, Germany (2001), Uxbridge, England (2004), and Amsterdam, The Netherlands (2007). After Amsterdam, the conference changed to a bi-annual schedule, in Boone, USA (2009), Manchester, England (2011), Bologna, Italy (2013), and Canterbury, England (2014). In 2014 the chromosome community commemorated the 50thanniversary of the ICC since Darlington and Lewis organized the first meeting in Oxford. Looking  back on the Chromosome Conferences over the years, it is clear that chromosome studies have advanced to study exciting, new problems and to develop novel technologies.

EMBO | EMBL Symposium — Complex Life of mRNA
ID
721730
Dates
05 Oct 2016 - 08 Oct 2016
Location
Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract
Before the genetic information stored in the DNA can be used to direct cell growth and metabolism it has to be transferred into RNA. Messenger RNAs (mRNAs) are key components in the transmission of genetic information in all life forms - from viruses to complex mammalian organisms. Exciting recent findings have revealed a remarkable degree of complexity in the lives of mRNAs and the field is rapidly developing. The EMBO | EMBL Symposium “Complex Life of mRNA” will bring leaders in the mRNA field together with post-docs and students, with the aim of disseminating and discussing the most recent results.

Circulating Biomarkers 2016 Dundee
ID
805234
Dates
12 Oct 2016 - 13 Oct 2016
Location
Dundee, United Kingdom
Abstract
In the last couple of years EU Policy makers and grant funding bodies have been championing the desire to break the translational bottle-neck. As researchers focus more on breaking the translational bottle neck they have started to look more closely at the kinds of biomarkers which will enable this. These circulating biomarkers such as circulating DNA (ctDNA/cfDNA/cftDNA), miRNA/microRNA, circulating tumour cells & exosomes are indeed useful and we have been covering them in the last few conferences with some great data and presentations from opinion leaders in the respective areas. We have heard from researchers about how they perform their biased and unbiased discovery on these biomarkers and then validate and move them into the clinic so that the blood biopsy tests can be realized.

2016 IMB Conference: Epigenetics in Development
ID
789751
Dates
20 Oct 2016 - 22 Oct 2016
Location
Mainz, Germany
Abstract
The conference will cover the role of epigenetics in developmental processes from the level of individual cells to whole organisms. A central theme of the conference will be to explore how the epigenomic landscape changes between fertilisation and differentiation, what regulates these changes and what is their developmental significance. Included in this is how epigenetics contributes to developmental patterning. For example, what epigenetic regulators are important in lineage specification, how do they exert their function and how do cell-cell interactions transmit signals to the epigenome. The contribution of chromatin structure to developmental processes and the molecular mechanisms that regulate these changes will also be addressed.

Cell Symposia: Functional RNAs
ID
801242
Dates
06 Nov 2016 - 08 Nov 2016
Location
Guangzhou, China
Abstract
What an exciting time for RNA! Not long ago, small RNAs were taking the scientific world by storm, demonstrating that our long-held beliefs about gene expression were incomplete and providing us with new experimental approaches. Today, new breakthroughs continue to redefine the scientific landscape. RNA-guided genome editing allows us to modify genes at their endogenous loci, and sequencing technologies allow us to assess gene expression at remarkable scales, large and small. As a result, we are beginning to understand biology like never before. Please join us for a meeting focused on how functional RNAs impact gene expression. Topics will include emerging technologies, new insights into small RNA formation and function, regulation of gene expression by long noncoding RNAs, genome regulation, genome editing, and more. Our aim is to bring together researchers with broad interests in RNA biology and its impact on gene expression to share their current research efforts, foster collaborations, and stimulate ideas for future avenues of research.
