Abstract:
Genome engineering is among the fastest growing areas of science and seeks to develop new technologies for the precise manipulation of genes and genomes in cells, tissues, animals, and populations. In addition to its utility for advancing our understanding of basic biology, genome engineering has numerous real-world applications, ranging from correction of disease-causing mutations in humans to engineering plants that better provide fuel, food and industrial raw materials. The first clinical trials and patient treatments using genome engineering approaches are ongoing. The scope of this meeting is diverse, encompassing established and emerging technologies for modifying genomes and their applications in basic science, disease modeling, gene therapy, and agriculture. We anticipate that this diversity of technologies and experimental systems will create a stimulating meeting environment that will enable new insights and advance the field.

SysMod — Computational Modeling of Biological Systems Annual Meeting at ISMB
07 Jul 2018 • Chicago, Illinois, United States
Abstract:
The Computational Modeling of Biological Systems (SysMod) Community Of Special Interest aims at bridging the gap between bioinformatics and systems biology modeling. With advances in genomics these fields have recently started to converge. For example, systems modeling has become more reliant on bioinformatic network inference to build models and has begun to use transcriptomics and proteomics data to train models. More communication between systems modelers and bioinformaticians is needed to further integrate these fields. In particular, more communication between systems modellers and bioinformaticians is needed to build models of whole cells, organs and organisms. Furthermore, the promises of precision medicine lie, in part, on the interplay between bioinformatics-based analysis of patient data and model-based predictions of treatments.

FASEB SRC: Dynamic DNA Structures in Biology
08 Jul 2018 - 13 Jul 2018 • Olean, NY, United States
Abstract:
For decades after its discovery, genomic DNA was believed to exist only as a right-handed, double helix known as B-DNA. Its sole functions were to serve as a template for RNA synthesis or as a template for the production of identical duplexes during chromosome replication. These core beliefs were shaken by the discovery that DNA is covalently modified and packaged into chromatin, and that the molecule can form an enormous variety of non-B alternative structures, including cruciforms, a left-handed helix, three- and four-stranded helices, and slip-strand configurations. Transient denaturation of the duplex during all major DNA transactions (replication, transcription, repair and recombination) promotes dynamic transitions to non-B DNA structures as well as other structures of interest such as R-loops, D-loops, reversed replication forks, Holiday junctions, and other complex DNA-DNA or DNA-RNA structures. Furthermore, repetitive DNA sequences, which are highly overrepresented in genomic DNA, are particularly prone to structural transitions. Studies conducted in many labs worldwide have confirmed that structural transitions are not only central to normal functions of the genome, but also are responsible for occasional malfunctioning that leads to a disease state. The most striking example is expansion of structure-prone DNA repeats, which is responsible for more than thirty hereditary neurological and developmental diseases.

Workshop 2018 Nijmegen — NGS Data Analysis Workshop 2018 Nijmegen
09 Oct 2018 • Nijmegen, Netherlands
Abstract:
As a part of our Genomic Medicine 2018 Nijmegen event, our team is also organizing a CLINICAL NGS DATA ANALYSIS WORKSHOP on 9th October at the Concertgebouw in Nijmegen. This part of the event will be led by Genome Diagnostics Nijmegen. The emphasis of the workshop is on the clinical interpretation of variants – a bottleneck in data analysis that is increasingly being requested by delegates to our conferences and workshops. During the workshop the attendees used real patient data which must be deleted at the end of the workshop. The course was intended for people who are not too experienced in data-analysis but have already some knowledge about NGS.

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.
