9.Keystone Symposia: Metabolism, Transcription and Disease
 Dates 10 Jan 2016 → 14 Jan 2016
[ID=738605] Go to top of page
 LocationSnowbird, Utah, United States
 Abstract To maintain homeostasis, cells need to coordinate gene expression and metabolic state. There is increasing evidence that misregulation of metabolic flux and gene transcription plays a major role in human diseases, including obesity, diabetes and cancer. The aim of this meeting is to explore how metabolic state influences gene expression programs and, conversely, how intermediary metabolism is controlled by the transcription machinery and chromatin-modulating enzymes. Particular emphasis will be on the connection between gene transcription and metabolism in homeostatic and diseased state. The meeting brings together scientists working on basic aspects of transcription control, epigenetics, metabolic disease and cancer. The meeting is being held in conjunction with "Nuclear Receptors: Full Throttle."

 LocationKeystone, Colorado, United States
 Abstract Although our understanding of small RNA pathways has progressed rapidly in the past decade, new questions continue to emerge, reflecting our ever more precise and comprehensive methods to quantify the abundance of molecular species and, consequently, the regulatory impact of small RNAs. This meeting seeks to catalyze the open exchange of ideas about the molecular mechanisms by which small RNAs are made and function, the quantitative interplay among small RNAs, between small RNAs and targets, and, ultimately, the consequences of these interactions for cellular function, in normal and pathological states. Special emphasis is placed on showcasing the work of young investigators, and on complementary approaches for studying gene regulation by small RNAs. Finally, the meeting seeks to continue the intellectually rigorous but congenial atmosphere that is the tradition of this exciting field.

13.Keystone Symposia: Neurological Disorders of Intracellular Trafficking
 Dates 31 Jan 2016 → 04 Feb 2016
[ID=738845] Go to top of page
 LocationKeystone, Colorado, United States
 Abstract Deficits in intracellular trafficking are a newly emerging, unifying theme in a broad range of neurological disorders, including Alzheimer’s Disease, Huntington's Disease, Parkinson’s Disease and many others. Specific treatments for these disorders are either limited or unavailable. The meeting will look at how these trafficking deficits produce neuropathology, why these disorders are limited to the nervous system and how to elucidate trafficking networks and control points to identify novel drug targets. Specifically, it aims to: 1) Advance state-of-the-art knowledge in the cell biology of intracellular trafficking, the genetics of trafficking disorders, the clinical neurology of trafficking disorders and the methods used to identify drug targets;): Facilitate interactions between stakeholder groups who have traditionally had only limited contact; 3) Identify common themes, novel approaches and new collaborations to address the many large gaps in knowledge about trafficking disorders. For the first time, the meeting will bring together groups that have traditionally not interacted, including cell biologists who study trafficking but have predominantly studied non-neural cells, clinical neurologists who do not typically work in cell biology, geneticists who have discovered causative genes for a wide range of neurological disorders but typically have limited expertise in the biological function of the gene products they identify, and drug developers, to cross-fertilize ideas and generate new collaborations.

RNA-seq or RNA sequencing is a new technology that utilizes the latest in next-generation sequencing approaches to obtain information about the presence/absence as well as the quantity of transcribed RNA (mRNA, rRNA, tRNA, or miRNA). Soon RNA-seq will be transplanting microarrays as the go-to procedure for analyzing the transcriptome of any genome. In this workshop, we will provide hands-on experience with RNA-seq - from the bench to the post-sequencing data acquisition (Illumina NextSeq) and analysis using the latest bioinformatics approaches.

16.Noncoding RNAs in Health and Disease
 Dates 21 Feb 2016 → 24 Feb 2016
[ID=740053] Go to top of page
 LocationSanta Fe, United States
 Abstract Over the past decade, there has been a greater understanding of genomic complexity in eukaryotes ushered in by the immense technological advances in high-throughput sequencing of DNA and its corresponding RNA transcripts. This has resulted in the realization that beyond protein-coding genes, there are a large number of transcripts that do not encode for proteins and, therefore, may perform their function through RNA sequences and/or through secondary and tertiary structural determinants. This Keystone Symposia meeting is focused on the latest findings concerning different classes of noncoding RNAs that use different strategies to regulate transcription. These are exciting times for discovering the biological scope and the mechanism of action for these RNA molecules, which have roles in dosage compensation, imprinting, enhancer function and transcriptional regulation, with a consequently great impact in development and disease. This meeting is being held jointly with  Enhancer Malfunction in Cancer.

17.Enhancer Malfunction in Cancer
 Dates 21 Feb 2016 → 24 Feb 2016
[ID=740063] Go to top of page
 LocationSanta Fe, United States
 Abstract Why point mutations in a general transcription factor are associated with specific forms of human malignancies has been a major question in cancer biology. Enhancers are DNA regulatory elements that can be transcribed and are key regulators of tissue-specific gene expression in development; their malfunction through point mutations in either regulatory elements or factors modulating enhancer-promoter communication could result in development problems. Indeed, recent genome-wide studies in the cataloging of somatic mutations in cancer have identified mutations in intergenic sequences encoding regulatory elements and in specific transcription factors that function in enhancer-promoter communication. This Keystone Symposia meeting will review recent reports in this regard and discuss the concept of enhancer malfunction in the misregulation of gene expression in development and in disease pathogenesis. This meeting is being held jointly with  Noncoding RNAs in Health and Disease.
