EMBO | EMBL Symposium: Systems Genetics: From Genotypes to Molecular Phenotypes to Complex Traits
24 Oct 2018 - 27 Oct 2018 • Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract:
Systems genetics is the extension of genetics to the system-level. It aims at understanding the relationship between genotypes and molecular phenotpes at the genome-scale, thus integrating genomics with large-scale molecular and phenotypic profiling. This opens the door to the investigating of the genetic basis of complex traits in a variety of model systems, from yeast growth phenotype to human disease. Taking advantage of natural genetic variation allows to investigate the effect of many mild genetic perturbations, an approach which contrasts with the all-or-none targeted genetic perturbations.

Keystone Symposia: From Rare to Care - Discovery, Modeling and Translation of Rare Diseases
11 Nov 2018 - 14 Nov 2018 • Vienna, Austria
Abstract:
Work over the past 30 years has resulted in the identification of genes for ~50% of the estimated 7,000 rare genetic diseases; it is predicted that most of the remaining disease genes will be identified in the next 10 years. Approximately 500 medicinal products are currently on the market for rare diseases. The accelerating pace of rare disease gene identification means, in effect, an almost commensurate increase in molecularly defined, readily diagnosable, but nonetheless poorly understood and untreatable, diseases. This meeting will examine the current and future bottlenecks to gene discovery, disease modeling, and therapeutic approaches and suggest strategies to enable progress in this regard. Ultimately, successful deployment of precision medicine for rare diseases will inform such approaches more broadly.

Keystone Symposia: Leveraging Genomic Diversity to Promote Animal and Human Health
25 Nov 2018 - 29 Nov 2018 • Kampala, Uganda
Abstract:
Genomic variation is a driving force of animal and human health, and susceptibility to disease. Yet our knowledge rarely spans human ethnic genomic diversity and genomic variation between animal breeds, limiting their translational impact. This symposium aims to: 1. Highlight translational genomics in humans and animals (clinical medicine and animal breeding for health and productivity) 2. Explore synergies and cross-disciplinary learning 3. Explore opportunities to leverage genomic diversity to push the current boundaries to translation 4. Address translation and affordability in low- and middle-income settings. Large-scale genomics initiatives like Genome England, the US Precision Medicine initiative, and the Human Heredity and Health in African Consortium, are providing extraordinarily large data sets to explore useful genotype-phenotype connections. Equivalent initiatives for animal data are starting. This meeting will explore the translation of genomic research in animals and humans; high and low-resourced environments; ethnic diversity; and cultural context. Identifying common strands in animal and human health opens up opportunities for repurposing of ideas and applications, and for finding innovative solutions for translational genomics through cross-boundary communities of practice.

EMBO|EMBL Symposium: Reconstructing the Human Past - Using Ancient and Modern Genomics
31 Mar 2019 - 03 Apr 2019 • Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract:
The study of population genetic variation and the sequencing of ancient DNA represent promising new avenues for investigating human history and our evolutionary past. Population-scale sequencing projects investigating human diversity have provided us with more than a million genome wide datasets that allowed new insights into patterns of human variation and mobility, while others have obtained genome wide data from thousands of ancient human skeletons, allowing the investigation of human evolution in action and providing direct insights into population genetic dynamics in situ. Large-scale genetic variation data sets can now be integrated with genomics data from ancient remains and history records to provide novel insights into human history, cultural evolution and the genetic history of societies. Ancient DNA was furthermore used to reconstruct genomic variation of historic pathogens as well as oral and gut microbiomes in order to provide molecular fossils to study microbial evolution through time. This meeting will involve scientists from genomics, bioinformatics, microbiology, anthropology, archaeology and historians and may initiate future interactions in this exciting and timely new research area that has the potential to change the way we think about our human past and how we might study genetic variation in the future.

EMBO|EMBL Symposium: Probing Neural Dynamics with Behavioural Genetics
10 Apr 2019 - 13 Apr 2019 • Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract:
One of the ultimate challenges in neuroscience is to link the dynamics of brain activity to behaviour. Cutting-edge experimental methodologies such as calcium imaging, multi-electrode recordings and optogenetics in freely-behaving animals of different genetic backgrounds have generated a wealth of rich data sets. In order to gain a better understanding, such studies need to be analysed through bioinformatics, computational analysis and theory. This meeting seeks to bring together experts on how the brain integrates information about sensory inputs and internal state into behavioural responses. This topic will be illustrated by studies in different model organisms and will range from sensory-motor to cognitive behaviour. It will foster interdisciplinary discussions between molecular, physiological, behavioural and computational neuroscientists.

Chromosomes: Organization, Function and Dynamics
22 Jun 2020 - 25 Jun 2020 • UC Santa Barbara, United States
Abstract:
Continuing rapid development in the field of chromatin biology has lately attracted enormous interest among biologists, physicists and mathematicians. Recently, the static structure of the folded genome inside the cell nucleus has been determined with increasingly high resolution. Special features of genome folding, such as loops, A/B compartments and chromosome territories, were identified and have inspired models rooted in polymer physics. Studies of the roles of these features in gene regulation and other biological processes are currently ongoing. In addition, research on chromatin dynamics has shown that the genome moves in space and time, thus these structural features might be dynamic, too. Currently, it is not clear how to reconcile the static picture with the dynamic nature of the genome. Following the recent surge in activity on both the biology and physics fronts, this conference aims to provide a platform that would facilitate an interdisciplinary exchange, cultivate new ideas and identify new frontiers.
