FAES-BioTech — BioTech 41 Non-Coding RNAs
ID
785462
Dates
13 Jun 2016 - 15 Jun 2016
Location
Bethesda, Maryland, United States
Abstract
Recent advances in whole genome analyses has vastly improved our appreciation of the extensive repertoire of noncoding RNAs, including initially the well-known small microRNAs (miRNAs), and more recently, the long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs). While miRNA-target interactions appear to be important in control of post-transciptional levels, lncRNAs appear to have a diverse array of functions including regulation of transcription, mRNA processing and post transcriptional control. Thus, the current state of the art transcriptional profiling should include technologies for the analyses of protein coding mRNA, miRNAs and lncRNAs.In this hands-on training workshop, participants will learn the latest information about miRNA and the use of miRNA as a diagnostic tool.

Bioactive Natural Products: Translating Promise into Practice
ID
772677
Dates
11 Jul 2016 - 13 Jul 2016
Location
Oxford, United Kingdom
Abstract
The RSC Biotechnology Group and sponsors invite you to a residential conference focused on contemporary scientific research which will facilitate the therapeutic use of small molecules derived from natural sources. The tradition of using naturally occurring small molecules as medicines is thousands of years old, but many front-line pharmaceuticals and agrochemicals in contemporary use owe their origins to natural sources. Modern research methods have brought back into the spotlight the concept of developing novel biomedical and agrochemical products from so-called natural products. This conference, which follows three earlier successful meetings organized by the Biotechnology Group at the University of Sussex in 1996, at the University St Andrews in 1999 and most recently at Magdalen College, Oxford in 2009, will highlight the current trends, challenges and successes in the industrial exploitation of natural products from a global perspective. The event will bring together key academic and industry interdisciplinary scientists, to disclose recent progress in this field, identify new perspectives and promote networking to facilitate the use of bioactive natural products in medical, agrochemical and related areas of societal need.  We warmly invite you to Oxford in 2016 to participate in this vibrant and timely event.

Chromatin, Replication and Chromosomal Stability 2016
ID
771742
Dates
19 Oct 2016 - 21 Oct 2016
Location
Copenhagen, Denmark
Abstract
The epigenetic framework guides events like replication, repair and transcription, which in turn themselves leave an imprint on chromatin and chromosomal structure. Understanding how modulation of chromatin during replication and repair influence cell fate decisions in normal development and disease represents a major challenge. By bringing together leading scientists in chromatin, replication, and epigenetics, this conference aims to inspire discussions and new ideas on the interplay between chromosome organisation, epigenetic inheritance and genome duplication.

Abstract
Stem cells have the unique properties of both self renewal and differentiation into various lineages. In the last few years, chromatin architecture and noncoding RNAs are emerging as major players in both gene regulation and stem cell differentiation. This conference will cover some of the most recent advances and cutting edge research in the field of chromatin organization, transcription regulation and stem cell biology. We aim to provide a forum in which interdisciplinary discussions will promote cross-collaboration between experts in these areas. Moreover, during the meeting, there will be great opportunities for young scientists to meet the experts in the field.

Cell Symposia: Functional RNAs
ID
801286
Dates
06 Nov 2016 - 08 Nov 2016
Location
Guangzhou, China
Abstract
What an exciting time for RNA! Not long ago, small RNAs were taking the scientific world by storm, demonstrating that our long-held beliefs about gene expression were incomplete and providing us with new experimental approaches. Today, new breakthroughs continue to redefine the scientific landscape. RNA-guided genome editing allows us to modify genes at their endogenous loci, and sequencing technologies allow us to assess gene expression at remarkable scales, large and small. As a result, we are beginning to understand biology like never before. Please join us for a meeting focused on how functional RNAs impact gene expression. Topics will include emerging technologies, new insights into small RNA formation and function, regulation of gene expression by long noncoding RNAs, genome regulation, genome editing, and more. Our aim is to bring together researchers with broad interests in RNA biology and its impact on gene expression to share their current research efforts, foster collaborations, and stimulate ideas for future avenues of research.
