7.ESF | EMBO Symposium — Long regulatory RNAs
 Dates 13 Sep 2014 → 18 Sep 2014
[ID=606487] 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 In order to develop a complete understanding of a biological system, information must cover multiple dimensions. Over the last ten years, we have witnessed decisive advances in bioinformatics, genome sequencing, and high-throughput technologies, that have highlighted the need for approaching biological systems as a whole. Metabolic diseases, including type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease, as well as cancer, involve complex genetic, molecular, and environmental interactions, and systems-based approaches have proven to be instrumental in tackling this complexity by integrating genomic, molecular, and physiological data. This meeting will provide a unique opportunity to bring together experts in systems biology and metabolism to discuss how ‘Omics’ approaches can be exploited in an effort to understand the perturbations that take place in the pathogenesis of metabolic diseases. We will discuss novel approaches for studying metabolic alterations in a high-throughput scale and explore how epigenomics, non-coding RNAs, and environmental factors control metabolic pathways in disease settings.

28.Biosensors: Applications in Industrial Biotechnology
 Start date21 Oct 2014
[ID=617505] Go to top of page
 LocationLondon, United Kingdom
 Abstract Chemical sensors and biosensors are becoming increasingly indispensable tools in the life science, medical and biotechnology sectors, particularly where accurate and reproducible monitoring and control of processes are required. Within the biotechnology sector, intense pressure to: a) comply with regulatory requirements for process reproducibility; b) achieve consistency in the quality of the end product; and c) manage overall costs has meant that innovative solutions to complement existing approaches are required. This need has, in part, been answered through the development and application of sensor technology to solve industrial problems.

Although, there are a wide variety of different sensors, they are all designed to perform two key tasks; molecular recognition and signal transduction. And, it is the latter task that is typically used to characterise them as either electrochemical, optical, spectroscopic, piezo-electrical or thermal devices. The many reported applications range from the rapid, unequivocal diagnosis of medical conditions like heart attacks used in hospitals to wireless, field-based devices used to monitor environmental samples. In this conference, the Separation Science and Technology Group (SSTG) has assembled a panel of world renowned experts in sensor technology to present on the latest developments in this new and exciting area of science. The panel will discuss their own work covering such areas as development of innovative nanotechnology methods, fabrication of sensors using state-of-the-art materials, applications of optical, micro-fluidic chemical and biological sensors to monitor and control industrial processes.

36.Gordon Research Conference — Chloroplast Biotechnology: Pathway Engineering 2015
 Dates 18 Jan 2015 → 23 Jan 2015
[ID=648549] Go to top of page
 LocationVentura, United States
 Abstract The 2015 Gordon Research Conference on Chloroplast Biotechnology will present cutting-edge research by an international group of scientists interested in experimental approaches to probe chloroplast structure and function and to exploit plastome engineering for biotechnological applications. The meeting is particularly timely in bringing together a growing community of scientists combining fundamental studies on chloroplast molecular biology with applications in agriculture, industrial biotechnology and healthcare. Covered at the meeting will be microalgae as well as land plants. The topics will include organelle genome evolution, revealing structural diversity that may guide the design of synthetic organelle genomes. Speakers will provide an update on all aspects of chloroplast gene expression, including the transcription machinery, mRNA processing, mRNA editing and mRNA degradation, mRNA translation and protein processing, assembly and turnover. Emphasis will be on the role of small regulatory RNAs and the function of nuclear-encoded, organelle-targeted RNA-binding proteins, the functions of which are largely unknown. Applications will include engineering plastid-encoded genes to improve plant productivity and boost biofuel production. Introduction of novel biosynthetic pathways in the plastid genome through engineering of polycistronic operons will be part of the program. Production of vaccines, industrial enzymes, and human therapeutic proteins in chloroplasts will also be discussed. Plastid engineering is routine in tobacco, tomato, potato, lettuce, cabbage and soybean, but thus far has not been successful in many other species, including monocots. Technical advances needed to extend to new crops and development of new regulated expression systems will be part of the program. Plastids, best known as chloroplasts when specialized for photosynthesis, are plant cellular organelles with a relatively small genome (ptDNA; 120-230-kb in size) that is present in up to thousands of copies per cell. Genetically stable transplastomic plants are obtained by modification of a plastid genome by homologous recombination, followed by replication of the transformed ptDNA and gradual dilution of wild type genome copies under selection in cultured cells, and plant regeneration. Generally recognized benefits of plastid engineering are: the potential for high-level protein expression from plastid transgenes; the potential for expression of multiple genes in operons; and transgene containment in crops in which only the maternal parent inherits plastids, thereby preventing transgene flow via pollen. Plastid transformation today is applied to problems in four general areas: (1) expression of recombinant proteins for industrial and pharmaceutical applications; (2) engineering the plastid genome to improve plant productivity; (3) engineering novel pathways into chloroplasts; (4) engineering novel agronomic traits into chloroplasts for gene stacking and transgene containment.
