 Dates 21 Apr 2015 → 22 Apr 2015
[ID=650782] Go to top of page
 LocationWeimar, Germany
 Abstract The symposium Euro BioMAT addresses the growing interest of science and industry in the different aspects of the creation, characterization, testing and application of biomaterials and closely related areas. The motivation is not only the recent scientific progress and new challenges of this exciting, strongly interdisciplinary field of science and engineering. Materials scientists, physicists, chemists, biologists in industrial R&D as well as medical professionals are increasingly facing situations, where materials are confronted with high performance requirements and a challenging biological environment at the same time. Much of the growth in the area of biomaterials emerged in the USA and Asia over the last years but Europe is gaining ground with a fast and steady growth in this field. The German Materials Society and its panel of experts in biomaterials address these developments with the Euro BioMAT in Weimar. Euro BioMAT will present and discuss the current state of progress in development, characterization, application, testing and modelling of biomaterials in basic science and industry. In addition, this symposium will bring together experts in closely related areas, such as biomimetics, biomineralization and biopolymers.

Innovative sample prep and target enrichment technologies have the ability to significantly increase the sensitivity and specificity of a test that is run on a heterogeneous sample or a sample that contains low concentration of an analyte. Appropriate and novel sample preparation is a pivotal part of assay development and validation that guarantees its repeatability and robustness. The ninth annual Sample Prep Technologies conference is designed to discuss the major challenges and the latest advances in sample preparation for advanced omics assays in clinic as well as in biodetection and biosurveillance fields.

16.Gordon Research Conference — Synthetic Biology 2015
 Dates 28 Jun 2015 → 03 Jul 2015
[ID=655541] Go to top of page
 LocationNewry, United States
 Abstract "Synthetic biology" is an emerging field that is very rapidly gaining currency within the scientific community and society at large. Although in itself not an entirely new concept and having been referred in literature for the first time as early as 1912, the advancements in molecular biology, high-throughput "omics" analysis and on computer and engineering sciences, only now begin to enable a serious, systematic approach to the development and forward engineering of biological circuits and cellular capabilities that may be ultimately translated into processes or products. The core of this concept is that, by drawing on knowledge developed in biology, chemistry, robotics and adapting engineering design and production principles stemming from Information Technologies, it is possible now to set off the creation of artificial (i.e. "synthetic") and hybrid systems using biological engineering design principles with unprecedented power and efficiency. The pursuit of synthetic biology is both the design and fabrication of biological components and systems that do not exist in the natural world as well as the re-design and fabrication of already existing biological systems.

20.Gordon Research Conference — Plant Metabolic Engineering 2015
 Dates 19 Jul 2015 → 24 Jul 2015
[ID=655426] Go to top of page
 LocationWaterville Valley, United States
 Abstract For millennia, humans have tapped the products of plant metabolism for food, feed, fiber, fuel and medicines. As the world’s population approaches 9 billion by 2050, these necessities will be required in unprecedented amounts, requiring production strategies that are sustainable and reduce carbon emissions to the atmosphere. Plants show remarkable metabolic plasticity and diversity, but meeting the above challenges will also require engineering plants to produce new products designed to meet the needs of an ever growing population. The importance of improving production of plant products is poorly appreciated by the public at large, but biology is now poised to facilitate major advances in the design of plants across the whole spectrum of potential uses. In this context, the 2015 Plant Metabolic Engineering GRC will (i) highlight new advances in understanding plant metabolism, its flexibility and its underlying control mechanisms, (ii) discuss new technologies that allow for engineering of complex pathways, targeted gene replacements and non-transgenic approaches to genetic improvement, and (iii) present real world examples where plant metabolic engineering is leading to new products that are reaching the marketplace. These latter presentations will provide the audience with an up to date assessment of both the scientific and regulatory challenges of moving metabolic engineering from concept to reality. Short talks will also be selected from poster abstracts submitted as part of the registration process. Junior scientists, postdoctoral researchers and graduate students will present their work in poster sessions and interact with global leaders in the field of plant metabolic engineering from both academia and industry. The collegial atmosphere of this conference, with extended discussion sessions and informal gatherings in the afternoons and evenings, provide a unique forum for networking and interactions across disciplines.

 Dates 09 Sep 2015 → 11 Sep 2015
[ID=682973] Go to top of page
 LocationFrankfurt, Germany
 Abstract Over the last decades we’ve seen a remarkable increase in knowledge on the biology and biochemistry of flavour and fragrance (F&F) formation in nature. With the advent of modern biotechnology and the use of -omics technologies, functional characterisation of genes, proteins and metabolites involved in F&F biosynthesis has become more and more sophisticated. The application of these technologies boosts our understanding of the genetic, biochemical and cellular fundamentals of the natural synthesis of the desired compounds. This information can be harnessed for improving aroma generation during food and beverage fermentation processes or in bioprocesses targeting specific F&F products. For the latter, great advances in systems biology, metabolic and enzyme engineering now enable access to develop microbial cell factories for the production of economically attractive F&F compounds. Complementary to the biological aspects, process engineering is equally important to improve existing or to establish completely new industrial bioprocesses. Finally, the recognised shift towards a bioeconomy and the push in the chemical industry to develop green and sustainable processes confirm the strategic importance of biotechnology. In this context biotechnology is recognised as providing the tools and expertise to establish sustainable production routes starting from renewable resources rather than relying on fossil material.

33.16th EMBO | EMBL Science and Society Conference: Emerging Biotechnologies: Hype, Hope and Hard Reality
 Dates 05 Nov 2015 → 06 Nov 2015
[ID=710573] Go to top of page
 LocationHeidelberg, Germany
 Abstract The conference will focus on the impacts of the life sciences on society through the development of biotechnology-based products for health and for sustaining the environment. The 21st century is sometimes referred to as “the century of biology” because of the potential contributions of the life sciences to virtually all research and consumer sectors. But assessing the outcomes a particular biotechnology may have on society or in research is difficult, due both to the complexities of these technologies, and to the multiple uses they may have. Further, biotechnology developments may be controversial because of ethical, economic and potential safety issues that might arise both in the research leading to these technologies, and in the wide use of the technologies themselves. The multidisciplinary group of speakers will present some of the most promising developments of biotechnology and discuss their ethical, economic and societal implications.
 Topics biotechnology, biotech, EMBL, molecular biology
