2.ESF | EMBO Symposium — Long regulatory RNAs
 Dates 13 Sep 2014 → 18 Sep 2014
[ID=606410] 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.

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.

 Abstract Cancer epigenetics is a new and rapidly developing area of research. This Keystone Symposia meeting on Epigenetics and Cancer aims to bring together scientists who are interested in understanding the connections between basic epigenetic pathways and the process of cancer. The meeting highlights the mechanisms by which epigenetic pathways control various biological processes and the connections between epigenetic pathways and cancer, thus providing a forum for the interchange of information and knowhow between the two converging fields of cancer research and epigenetics.

[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.

 Dates 28 Jun 2015 → 03 Jul 2015
[ID=648133] Go to top of page
 LocationWaterville Valley, United States
 Abstract Unlike many excellent specialty meetings where experts in eukaryotic or prokaryotic DNA replication, recombination, or transcription delve in to the intricacies of their special realm, the Chromosome Dynamics GRC takes a different tack. It includes interested participants with very different specialties and methodologies who share the common goal of understanding chromosome dynamic and the mechanisms that organize large DNA molecules. This is critical because homologous and site-specific recombination, transposition target selection, adaptive mutation, gene transcription/silencing, gene order on chromosomes, and genome segregation are all phenomena that depend on accurate models of chromosome dynamics. Breakout work on chromosomes from viruses to man has been announced at past meetings. Highlights included: new biochemistry and cell biology of condensins and cohesins, new roles for telomeres in replication and repair, single-molecule studies of chromatin remodeling proteins, mechanisms of triplet repeat expansions in diseases like Huntington’s Chorea and fragile X syndrome, and new roles for RNA in controlling epigenetic gene regulation and centromere function.

 Dates 01 Aug 2015 → 05 Aug 2015
[ID=646403] Go to top of page
 LocationCairns, Australia
 Abstract The Zing conference on “Genomic Integrity” will focus on the various pathways that help protect living creatures from the genetic changes that lead to genomic instability, mutagenesis, inherited rare human diseases, cancer, premature aging and neurological disorders. It is now understood that the ability to maintain the integrity of an organism's genome is achieved though the interplay between a variety of DNA repair pathways and the meeting will focus on new insights into our understanding of base excision repair, nucleotide excision repair, mismatch repair, replication fidelity, translesion DNA synthesis, cell cycle signaling and homologous recombination. The program will include time for vibrant group discussions, poster sessions and ample time for individual interactions. The key goal of this international meeting is to allow the community of scientists working in this highly interconnected set of sub-fields to come together in a single location, so as to share their exciting results and to discuss their thoughts for future research directions and collaborations.

[ID=637340] 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.

 Abstract In the 50 years since RNA was identified as a central component in the flow of genetic information, it has become increasingly clear that RNA performs many additional diverse and interesting functions. Regulatory RNAs are known to play central roles across numerous biological processes required for cell viability and function. Moreover, prokaryotic and eukaryotic genomes are pervasively transcribed to generated many additional RNAs with unknown functions, raising the question: What else does RNA do?
