FASEB SRC — Mechanisms in Plant Development
30 Jul 2017 - 04 Aug 2017 • Saxtons River, VT, United States
Abstract:
This SRC is an important and unique conference at the intersection of plant development, signaling, cell biology, modeling and genomics. This conference, which has been held every 2-3 years for the past 2 decades is the only meeting entirely dedicated to plant development. Plant growth and development are at the core of agricultural productivity and important for human survival. In addition, because plants evolved multicellularity independently from animals they provide insight into common and unique solutions to coordination of the behavior of cells and tissues. At this SRC, outstanding researchers from around the world present cutting edge research directed towards understanding how different aspects of plant growth and development are controlled in response to intrinsic and extrinsic cues and how those mechanisms are conserved or modified over evolutionary time. The conference format includes invited speakers and speakers selected from submitted abstracts, lots of time for poster viewing and intensive scientific discussions. Special sessions foster interactions between established scientists and young investigators. The small size of the meeting as well as the secluded location enable discussions of new ideas and emerging concepts in the rapidly moving field of plant development.

Belyaev Conference
07 Aug 2017 - 10 Aug 2017 • Novosibirsk, Russia
Abstract:
July 17, 2017 is the date that marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of Full Member of the USSR Academy of Sciences Dmitri K. Belyaev (1917–1985), an outstanding scientist, evolutionist and geneticist. In view of this memorable date, the Institute of Cytology and Genetics of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences and the co-organizers will be holding Belyaev Conference. Belyaev authored an all-new chapter in the theory of morphogenetic processes that explores interactions between two main factors in evolution: variability and selection. In an attempt to find the answers, he launched a large-scale, still ongoing experiment aimed at reproducing the earliest stage of the animal domestication process, with the silver fox as the test subject. The key was selection for human-friendly responses in the fox. As a result, a unique, world-famous tame fox population was created.

EMBO Workshop on Functional Genomic Variation — Integrating genomics and biophysics to comprehend functional genetic variation
08 Sep 2017 - 10 Sep 2017 • Turin, Italy
Abstract:
New genome sequencing technologies are releasing a flood of sequence variants in which disease-causing mutations must be distinguished from neutral variants. This distinction is critical to identifying disease mechanisms and is at the core of precision medicine efforts: they may provide critical information on how a patient may progress or respond to therapy. While several approaches have been developed to predict such 'functional' mutations, biophysical approaches have been relatively scarce. Biophysical methods, which directly model the effect of a sequence variant, hold promise to predict functional mutations more accurately.

The main goal of this EMBO Workshop is to bring together computational experts in genomics and biophysics to discuss recent developments and landmark discoveries on the interpretation of genetic variants and biophysical modeling. We aim to foster a lively and thought-provoking dialogue between these communities in an interdisciplinary environment in order to exchange ideas and research tools. The session topics cover the state of the art in both fields as well as presentations on work aiming to bridge the two.

Specifically, this EMBO Workshop will highlight recent progress in large- scale genomics projects that have generated large catalogs of putative disease variants in the genome to foster discussion of how biophysical approaches can aid in their accurate and rapid functional interpretation. We will take special care in encouraging young/early stage scientists and junior faculty to participate by providing ample opportunities for them to present as invited speakers and poster presenters; fostering discussion during the sessions; and hosting the event within a campus setting.

GDVI — Genomic Data Visualization and Interpretation
11 Sep 2017 - 15 Sep 2017 • Berlin, Germany
Abstract:
The advent of rapid and relatively cheap massively parallel sequencing has dramatically increased the availability of genome, transcriptome, and epigenome profiling. Analysis workflows and published best practices are also now available to process raw sequence data into alignments, variant calls, expression estimates, etc., in relatively standardized file formats. Interpretation and visualization of these data, often consisting of thousands to billions of data points, and extracting biological meaning remains a serious challenge. In this workshop we will explore a number of best-in-class visualization tools, and provide working examples that demonstrate important principles of ‘omic interpretation strategies.

EMBO | EMBL Symposium: From Single- to Multiomics: Applications and Challenges in Data Integration
12 Nov 2017 - 14 Nov 2017 • Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract:
The current speed at which novel high-throughput technologies are developed and large-scale biological data are produced offers tremendous opportunities for enhancing our molecular understanding of biological systems. One of the biggest challenges will be to interpret these large-scale biological “omics” data and to develop computational and statistical approaches to generate a coherent biological model that will enable us to address novel questions about the consequences of genetic and environmental perturbations in complex biological systems.This conference will provide a platform for bringing together leading researchers from computational biology and various “omics” fields (e.g. genomics, genetics, proteomics, metabolomics, lipidomics, etc) to present their latest work and discuss applications, future ideas and challenges for integrating large-scale biological data across different biological technologies and disciplines.

Epigenetics Conference
15 Feb 2018 - 18 Feb 2018 • Cancun, Mexico
Abstract:
The DNA of eukaryotic cells is organized into chromatin fibres, where the nucleosome is the basic repeating unit. Chromatin is thus at the core of fundamental processes such as gene regulation, stem cell fate determination and cancer. By and large, these topics have traditionally been covered by separated meetings. However, recent literature indicates that the boundaries among these various disciplines are becoming less clear.
