Keystone Symposia: Genome Engineering - From Mechanisms to Therapies
19 Feb 2019 - 23 Feb 2019 • Victoria, BC, Canada
Abstract:
The use of programmable nucleases such as CRISPR-Cas systems, ZFNs and TALENs has revolutionized cell biology by providing the ability to manipulate specific genetic and epigenetic states within living cells. These systems have been broadly applied as tools in research settings and increasingly are being used to develop improved models of disease and engineer cells for therapeutic purposes. Together with other DNA-modifying systems such as recombinases, integrases and transposases, it is now possible to introduce mutations that will model human disease, build complex synthetic signaling networks to perform regulated functions, and design cells to target specific disease states. Improvements to the methods involved requires understanding enzyme structures and mechanisms and how they intersect with cellular DNA repair systems. The intersection of this basic science with engineering approaches and improved cellular models is revolutionizing our understanding and treatment of human disease. The goal of this Keystone Symposia conference is to bring together those developing and studying genome engineering tools with groups who are applying them to build new disease models, identify disease mechanisms and drug targets, and develop cell-based therapeutics and genetic medicines.

NGGTB 2019 — Next Generation Genomic Technologies and Bioinformatics
01 Mar 2019 - 02 Mar 2019 • Chandigarh, India
Abstract:
The progress of science is punctuated by the advent of revolutionary technologies that provide new ways and scales to formulate scientific questions and advance knowledge. Genomics is one of the recent revolutions in science where the speed of genome sequencing reduced from decades to days and cost from crores to lakhs. The rapid explosion of genomics big data amalgamated with computer science to translate genetic code. Now the genomic science has moved from individual-centric to public (population) studies to address disease, thereby increasing the opportunities in genomics and bioinformatics. Lack of awareness on genomics and trained human resources are the major bottleneck for science development and industrial growth in India. We excel and hold legacy in transforming Students/Professors/Industry professionals into Bioinformaticians in a short period.

Keystone Symposia: Epigenetics and Human Disease
17 Mar 2019 - 21 Mar 2019 • Banff, Alberta, Canada
Abstract:
Epigenetics is a major mechanism in human health and disease. Data from a range of diseases (cancer, neurological and immunological disorders) have uncovered altered epigenomes arising from mutations, altered expression and/or copy number alterations of numerous epigenetic factors (histones, DNA and chromatin modifying enzymes, reader proteins, chromatin modulators and noncoding RNAs). Genome-wide analyses have illustrated the relationship between altered epigenetic states (e.g., modified DNA, histones and chromatin packaging) and disease onset and progression. Furthermore, both local and long-range nuclear chromatin architecture are increasingly recognized as major contributors to normal and pathologic epigenetic states. This conference, held jointly with the “3D Genome” conference, will cover the most current knowledge of epigenetic events modulating nuclear function (gene expression regulation, enhancer modulation, domains and structural organization as well as cell division and differentiation), while relating this to normal and disease models.

Keystone Symposia: 3D Genome - Gene Regulation and Disease
17 Mar 2019 - 21 Mar 2019 • Banff, Alberta, Canada
Abstract:
Transcription of the eukaryotic genome is not only driven by the cis regulatory elements embedded in the linear DNA sequence but also by the way chromosomes fold in the three-dimensional (3D) nuclear space. Growing evidence has pointed to a key role of the 3D genome architecture in gene regulation and human disease; however, the details of dynamic chromatin organization in different cell types remain opaque. Additionally, how chromatin organization shapes the gene regulatory program and influence disease pathogenesis has not been fully elucidated. The major objective of this conference is to accelerate the study of 3D genome organization; particularly with regard to gene regulation and human disease.

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.

Keystone Symposia: Small Regulatory RNAs
14 Apr 2019 - 18 Apr 2019 • Daejeon, South Korea
Abstract:
Small regulatory RNAs are integral players in eukaryotic gene regulation, and are involved in numerous developmental and pathological pathways. Although the field has been making remarkable progresses in recent years, it still has a number of seminal questions. We need to understand how cell signaling pathways are connected to small RNA pathways, how small RNAs are regulated and function during cell fate transition, how small RNAs interact with subcellular compartments, if and how they are transported between cells, and how small RNAs participate in immune response. We also need to gain a systemic view of small RNAs and their targets in the context of gene network, and to understand their involvements in human diseases, not just cancer but also other genetic and metabolic disorders. This conference brings together scientists studying diverse animal and plant model organisms, which will offer an opportunity to understand the mechanism and function of small RNAs in an evolutionary and physiological context. The symposium will also bridge the gaps between fundamental knowledge, clinical needs and technical development by addressing issues such as small RNA involvement in diseases, in vivo delivery of RNA and technical challenges in RNA detection at single-molecule and single-cell levels. Compared with other conferences on RNA, this conference is unique in that it focuses on small regulatory RNAs, yet it is highly diverse in research approaches and biological systems. It will serve as a central forum for the small RNA community.

Gene Drives: Interdisciplinary symposium with a focus on their scientific, ethical, socio-economic and regulatory aspects
24 May 2019 • Bern, Switzerland
Abstract:
The idea of circumventing the rules of inheritance in order to quickly spread and maintain desired traits through an entire population or species, has long existed. With new genetic engineering techniques for genome editing, such as CRISPR-Cas9, it may soon be possible to turn this idea into reality. It has been claimed that gene drive technology may be used to combat infectious diseases such as malaria, dengue or zika, as well as to reduce the threat posed by agricultural pests and ecologically harmful invasive species. However, a crucial difference with conventional gene technology is that gene drives intentionally target wild populations in order to permanently alter them.

Clinical NGS Data Analysis Nordic Workshop 2019
12 Nov 2019 • Copenhagen, Denmark
Abstract:
This year, our annual Clinical NGS Data Analysis Nordic Workshop, led by the Bioinformatics team of Odense University Hospital (OUH), will take place in Copenhagen. The workshop will aim to go over the steps from acquisition of sequencing data to the generation of the bam- and vcf- files that will be used in the subsequent filtering for variants. Variants will be evaluated using various databases and prediction tools to establish potential pathogenic variants. Workshop delegates will be given tutorials and examples and will be expected to handle the data themselves on their own laptops. This workshop will be hands-on, so all delegates will need to bring their own laptop. Full laptop requirements are Java 7 or 8, 4GB RAM and 10 GB of free hard disc space, Microsoft Excel and Internet access (WiFi will be provided at the venue).

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.
