17.Keystone Symposia: Cell Biology and Immunology of Persistent Infection
 Dates 31 Jan 2016 → 04 Feb 2016
[ID=738822] Go to top of page
 LocationBanff, Alberta, Canada
 Abstract Persistent infections are a major source of morbidity and mortality around the world. However, it is increasingly clear that the bacterial microbiome, the virome and the mycobiome can have beneficial roles for the host. Chronic infections with pathogens represent a failure of sterilizing immunity, but the mechanisms responsible for persistence and the balance between host health and disease resulting from infection are not completely understood. Recent discoveries reveal that multiple components of both the infecting organism and the host response to infection determine infection outcome, illustrating that a range of disciplines must be brought together to understand the fundamental mechanisms of chronic infection. This meeting is designed to bring together diverse communities of researchers at the cutting edge of their fields to understand whether and how to manipulate persistent infections to prevent disease and enhance health.

18.Keystone Symposia: Neurological Disorders of Intracellular Trafficking
 Dates 31 Jan 2016 → 04 Feb 2016
[ID=738889] Go to top of page
 LocationKeystone, Colorado, United States
 Abstract Deficits in intracellular trafficking are a newly emerging, unifying theme in a broad range of neurological disorders, including Alzheimer’s Disease, Huntington's Disease, Parkinson’s Disease and many others. Specific treatments for these disorders are either limited or unavailable. The meeting will look at how these trafficking deficits produce neuropathology, why these disorders are limited to the nervous system and how to elucidate trafficking networks and control points to identify novel drug targets. Specifically, it aims to: 1) Advance state-of-the-art knowledge in the cell biology of intracellular trafficking, the genetics of trafficking disorders, the clinical neurology of trafficking disorders and the methods used to identify drug targets;): Facilitate interactions between stakeholder groups who have traditionally had only limited contact; 3) Identify common themes, novel approaches and new collaborations to address the many large gaps in knowledge about trafficking disorders. For the first time, the meeting will bring together groups that have traditionally not interacted, including cell biologists who study trafficking but have predominantly studied non-neural cells, clinical neurologists who do not typically work in cell biology, geneticists who have discovered causative genes for a wide range of neurological disorders but typically have limited expertise in the biological function of the gene products they identify, and drug developers, to cross-fertilize ideas and generate new collaborations.

26.Noncoding RNAs in Health and Disease
 Dates 21 Feb 2016 → 24 Feb 2016
[ID=740020] Go to top of page
 LocationSanta Fe, United States
 Abstract Over the past decade, there has been a greater understanding of genomic complexity in eukaryotes ushered in by the immense technological advances in high-throughput sequencing of DNA and its corresponding RNA transcripts. This has resulted in the realization that beyond protein-coding genes, there are a large number of transcripts that do not encode for proteins and, therefore, may perform their function through RNA sequences and/or through secondary and tertiary structural determinants. This Keystone Symposia meeting is focused on the latest findings concerning different classes of noncoding RNAs that use different strategies to regulate transcription. These are exciting times for discovering the biological scope and the mechanism of action for these RNA molecules, which have roles in dosage compensation, imprinting, enhancer function and transcriptional regulation, with a consequently great impact in development and disease. This meeting is being held jointly with  Enhancer Malfunction in Cancer.

27.Enhancer Malfunction in Cancer
 Dates 21 Feb 2016 → 24 Feb 2016
[ID=740030] Go to top of page
 LocationSanta Fe, United States
 Abstract Why point mutations in a general transcription factor are associated with specific forms of human malignancies has been a major question in cancer biology. Enhancers are DNA regulatory elements that can be transcribed and are key regulators of tissue-specific gene expression in development; their malfunction through point mutations in either regulatory elements or factors modulating enhancer-promoter communication could result in development problems. Indeed, recent genome-wide studies in the cataloging of somatic mutations in cancer have identified mutations in intergenic sequences encoding regulatory elements and in specific transcription factors that function in enhancer-promoter communication. This Keystone Symposia meeting will review recent reports in this regard and discuss the concept of enhancer malfunction in the misregulation of gene expression in development and in disease pathogenesis. This meeting is being held jointly with  Noncoding RNAs in Health and Disease.

 LocationFoz 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.
