39.ESF | EMBO Symposium — Long regulatory RNAs
 Dates 13 Sep 2014 → 18 Sep 2014
[ID=606509] 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.

[ID=621209] Go to top of page
 LocationSeattle, WA, United States
 Abstract Today, biospecimen collections are used by multiple research groups for varying research aims, from basic research through clinical trials. A well-managed biobank is a critical prerequisite for high-quality biological research. The proper collection, processing, storage and tracking of biospecimens are critical components allowing researchers to better link molecular and clinical information. Thus, by necessity, biobanking is both a science and a business. Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Sixth Annual Leaders in Biobanking Congress: Maximizing Your Investment in Biospecimens addresses both the business and science of biobanking, bringing together biomedical and biopharmaceutical researchers, regulators, biorepository managers and practitioners to investigate the best strategies for effective use of biospecimens within today's cutting-edge research.

[ID=621893] Go to top of page
 LocationSeattle, WA, United States
 Abstract Tumor collections provide insight into the great variability of cancer, its progression and its response to treatment. Patient xenografts and cell models (PDX) allow researchers to link and integrate information and determine personal variations in cancer molecular profiles. The recent advancements in high-throughput genomics, proteomics and other -omics platforms allow profiling of large numbers of cancer analytes in a single assay. Thus, knowledge of these altered molecular landscapes offers great promise for developing molecular tests to improve cancer diagnosis and optimize treatment. Cambridge Healthtech Institute's Inaugural Cancer Diagnosis at the Crossroads: Precision Medicine Driving Change convenes international oncology experts in the fields of tumor biospecimen research, PDX models, molecular diagnostics/prognostics and pharmacogenomics.

 LocationChicago, United States
 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.

52.Biosensors: Applications in Industrial Biotechnology
 Start date21 Oct 2014
[ID=617527] 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.
