NAI — New Approaches for Investigating Nascent Peptide Folding
11 Dec 2017 - 13 Dec 2017 • Cambridge, United Kingdom
Abstract:
This timely meeting investigates new methodologies for studying the early folding profiles of nascent proteins as they are being synthesised by ribosomes. With growing evidence, supported by several high impact publications in the last few months, that the vast majority of proteins fold into their native structures before they are released by the ribosome, this meeting aims to discuss protein folding and how it is inherently coupled to protein synthesis and chain elongation. The efficiency of these folding and targeting mechanisms is imperative to the smooth running of cellular processes.

With an introductory talk discussing how high resolution structures of the ribosome have revealed exciting information about the molecular basis of protein synthesis, given by Nobel Laureate and President of the Royal Society, Professor Venki Ramakrishnan, this will be an excellent opportunity to network and meet to discuss research.

EMBL Course: Brillouin Microscopy: Emerging Tool for Probing Mechanical Properties of Living Cells
17 Jan 2018 - 19 Jan 2018 • Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract:
Brillouin microscopy is an emerging optical imaging and spectroscopy technique which allows to probe mechanical properties of living cells using light. Mechanical forces have recently become important in cell, tissue and developmental biology as they are thought to regulate a number of different properties and behaviours. Brillouin microscopy offers the ability to measure these mechanical properties in a non-invasive way with high spatial and temporal resolution in living cells, and also gives access to internal structures, i.e. it is not restricted to surface measurements, like many other techniques (e.g. atomic force microscopy). By a mix of lectures and hands-on classes this course aims at bringing this emerging technique closer to the life scientists.

Keystone Symposia: Plant Signaling - Molecular Pathways and Network Integration
21 Jan 2018 - 24 Jan 2018 • Tahoe City, United States
Abstract:
Natural products, the structurally diverse family of small molecules produced by living organisms in an idiosyncratic fashion, have provided the basis for the majority of our therapeutic agents used to treat infectious diseases, cancer and immune disorders. Whole genome sequencing of producing organisms, especially bacteria and fungi, reveals that we have discovered only a fraction of these biosynthetically derived small molecules; a substantial fraction of natural product chemical space still represents “dark matter” (i.e., molecules predicted by bioinformatics analysis that have yet to be observed experimentally). Diversity springs from variations in genetically encoded biosynthetic enzymes, environmental stimuli that regulate expression of these genes and the inherent combinatorial expansion resulting from multi-enzyme biosynthetic pathways. Closing this gap between our current inventory and the genomic potential has become an important goal for basic and applied science; synthetic biology coupled with bioinformatic analysis has become the primary research tool for this effort. Bioinformatic mining continues to reveal the enzymes and pathways that nature uses, and synthetic biology has begun to reassemble or refactor these pathways to produce known and unknown products in new hosts. This conference brings together researchers in fields ranging from microbiology to botany, bioinformatics, gene synthesis and assembly, covering the spectrum from basic to industrial applications.

Keystone Symposia: Natural Products and Synthetic Biology - Parts and Pathways
21 Jan 2018 - 24 Jan 2018 • Olympic Valley, United States
Abstract:
Phenotypic plasticity is the quintessential characteristic of plant development and adaptation under fluctuating environments. This characteristic is the result of numerous signal sources (extra-, intra- and intercellular) being sensed, integrated and interpreted by a plethora of signaling components which are interacting in a highly coordinated manner. Recent advances in molecular biology, chemistry (i.e., chemical genetics and development of novel probes) and computational approaches (i.e., mathematical modeling and network reconstruction) have greatly facilitated the discovery of novel signaling pathways as well as providing detailed molecular mechanisms for key components of the existing signaling pathway. However, many have yet to be discovered. The conference features leaders in the plant signaling field and encapsulates the most recent advances in this field, from single molecule chemistry to large-scale network analysis, with an emphasis on research areas such as growth and development, environmental responses and biological interactions in both model and non-model plant species. Therefore, this meeting will bring together a diverse community of scientists to interact, collaborate and share novel ideas, leading to the translation of this knowledge into new applications. Ultimately, unraveling the complexity of plant signaling networks will be an important step forward in securing global food production.

Keystone Symposia: Cell Death, Inflammation and Adaptation to Tissue Stress
21 Jan 2018 - 25 Jan 2018 • Breckenridge, Colorado, United States
Abstract:
Cell death and inflammation are ancient processes of fundamental biological importance in both normal physiology and human disease pathologies. The recent observation that cell death regulatory components have dual roles in cell death and inflammation suggests that these proteins function not primarily to kill, but to coordinate tissue repair and adaptation to tissue stress. This perspective unifies cell death components as positive regulators of tissue repair that replace malfunctioning or damaged tissues and enhances the resilience of epithelia to insult. It is now recognized that cells that die do not do so silently, but release a variety of paracrine signals to communicate with their cellular environment to ensure tissue regeneration and wound healing. The goals of the conference are to: 1) Explore the gaps in our current understanding of how dead and dying cells influence inflammatory responses in tissue repair and disease settings; 2) Foster communication and collaborations between scientists focusing on different areas of biology (cell death, innate immunity, adaptive immunity, cancer and model organisms); 3) Pinpoint nodes of intersection linking all research fields; 4) Define key-regulatory paradigms at these intersections, and discuss molecular mechanisms that control these processes; 5) Share information on possible consequences of deregulation; 6) Discuss translational aspects and potential drug targets, e.g. in pre-clinical models of malignant disease.

Gordon Research Conference — Predator-Prey Interactions
28 Jan 2018 - 02 Feb 2018 • Ventura, CA, United States
Abstract:
The 2018 Gordon Research Conference on Predator-Prey Interactions brings together speakers from a range of disciplines to address both the underlying mechanisms and emergent impacts of the predator-prey dynamic. The neurobiology of responses to risk in individual prey can, when aggregated across a population, profoundly affect surrounding ecosystems. Similarly, researchers are increasingly aware of how quickly selection and epigenetic forces can shift prey phenotypes and alter future interactions with predators. In both cases, the connections between small-scale (within an individual or at a single point in time) and large-scale (across ecosystems or generations) processes illustrate how exploring the "linkage map" of predator-prey interactions across scales can identify new fields of research and synergize the collaborations necessary to address them.

3rd Molecules and Materials for Artificial Photosynthesis Conference
02 Mar 2018 - 05 Mar 2018 • Cancun, Mexico
Abstract:
The replacement of fossil fuels by a clean and renewable energy source is one of the most urgent and challenging issues our society is facing today, which is why intense research is devoted to this topic recently. Nature has been using sunlight as the primary energy input to oxidize water and generate carbohydrates (a solar fuel) for over a billion years. Inspired, but not constrained, by nature, artificial systems can be designed to capture light and oxidize water and reduce protons or other organic compounds to generate useful chemical fuels. Significant progress has been made recently in artificial photosynthesis based on molecular chemistry and material science.  However, developments in these two areas have occurred more independently than what is perhaps desired. In the present meeting, we will bring together researchers in these two scientific communities to explore possible synergistic effects of “fusion” between molecular and materials systems.

Gordon Research Conference — DNA Damage, Mutation and Cancer
25 Mar 2018 - 30 Mar 2018 • Ventura, CA, United States
Abstract:
The 2018 Gordon Research Conference on DNA Damage, Mutation and Cancer is developed around the theme of exploiting fundamental knowledge to advance treatment and prevention. Rich and ever-increasing information is available on the specific mutations that are the molecular basis of cancer. Many mutations can be traced to specific types of damage to the DNA, while others arise from DNA replication errors or unknown causes. Technologies are being refined to determine the origins of these mutations, and monitor the accuracy and reproducibility of cancer genomic data. Biological and structural analyses can assess which mutations are functionally relevant. Specific mutations can confer vulnerabilities, making individual cancers more responsive to treatment with DNA damaging agents.

Adult Neurogenesis 2018
02 May 2018 - 04 May 2018 • Dresden, Germany
Abstract:
Adult neurogenesis is distinct from embryonic forms of neurogenesis in that neuronal development underlies extrinsic regulation, from physiological to pathological. This regulation targets different stages of neuronal development, between cell cycle entry and proliferation of radial glia-like stem cells to the lasting integration of the newly generated neurons. There are obvious feedback loops in that regulation of neurogenesis might alter behavior, which in turn acts back on adult neurogenesis. But how does this all work? How does regulation occur across scales? What constitutes ‘causes’ and ‘mechanisms’ in such complex system? The 2018 Adult neurogenesis meeting uses these key questions as entry point into discussions about how activity and development are linked in adult neurogenesis.

Cell Symposia: Mitochondria
04 Jun 2018 - 06 Jun 2018 • San Diego, United States
Abstract:
Our view of mitochondria is rapidly transforming. Recent advances in animal models, systems-based approaches, and imaging techniques have revealed that mitochondria have diverse functions beyond bioenergetics and biosynthesis. Their functions are linked to their surprisingly dynamic behavior, as mitochondria adapt and respond to a plethora of cellular and tissue-specific organismal needs. Given that mitochondrial dysfunction is associated with metabolic disorders, cancer, and neurodegeneration, there is an urgent need to understand how mitochondrial events are orchestrated and integrated within the cell and organism. This Cell Symposium aims to bring together leading researchers who study mitochondrial function, regulation and mechanism to build a complete picture of mitochondria as a platform to integrate signaling pathways and cellular processes in physiology and disease. This wide-ranging Cell Symposium will showcase the latest research on: •Transport and Biogenesis •Dynamics and Inter-organelle Contacts •Quality Control and Mitochondrial Communication •Metabolism and Energetics •Mitochondria in Physiology and Disease

Gordon Research Conference — Cyclic Nucleotide Phosphodiesterases
10 Jun 2018 - 15 Jun 2018 • Newry, ME, United States
Abstract:
The 2018 Gordon Research Conference on Cyclic-Nucleotide Phosphodiesterases (PDEs) will focus on efforts to develop the therapeutic potential of phosphodiesterase modulators while also highlighting new biology relevant to the PDEs. As the sole means for terminating the intracellular signals carried by ubiquitous second messengers cAMP and cGMP, the PDEs are uniquely positioned to regulate a host of signaling cascades involved in cell to cell communication, metabolism and gene regulation. Unique elements of the quaternary structure of each family has allowed for the generation of selective inhibitors despite the high level of sequence identity in the active site of the enzymes. Only two families, PDE 6 and 11, still await the development of useful preclinical tools/inhibitors and drug candidates are in or nearing human studies for PDE 1, 2,3,4,5, 9 and 10. Clinical data is accumulating on the effects of PDE 3, 4, 5, 9 and 10 inhibition although only the effects of PDE5 inhibition have been subject to extensive, albeit poorly undocumented, profiling.

Abstract:
The field of immunometabolism has thrived over the last decade, revealing not only the major roles played by immune cells in metabolic homeostasis but also the impact of metabolic pathways on immune cell function. As new discoveries continue to reveal the intricate links between immunology and metabolism, a key question arises: will our accumulated knowledge on immunometabolic deregulations translate into novel therapies for human diseases? During this Cell Symposium, you will hear about the latest advances in immunometabolism from physician-scientists, basic researchers and industry leaders. We will discuss how local and systemic metabolism are integrated at the cellular level to regulate immune cell function and we will focus on how novel insights into immunometabolism can be harnessed to advance and/or bolster therapeutic interventions in metabolic diseases, inflammation, autoimmunity, and cancer.

The Gordon Research Seminar on Diffraction Methods in Structural Biology is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas.

A new wave of crystallography experiments has emerged in recent years that expand the scope of experiments beyond traditional structure determination. Time-resolved experiments, X-ray free electron lasers (XFELs), and in-situ room-temperature experiments now provide a wide range of methods to probe protein structures in a crystalline environment. These offer the possibility to determine protein structures as a function of time and physical experimental parameters, and promise to drastically change our understanding of protein structures and dynamics. This seminar will cover the full range of these new possibilities within crystallography.

Biomineralization means many different things to different people. Biomineralization is the outcome of a genetic program that results in an anatomical feature, the product or target of pathological processes that threaten health and well-being, evidence of evolutionary mechanisms, the consequence of a complex choreography of cellular events, an effect of reciprocal action between environment and living systems, the result of phase transformations and self-assembly, or a quintessential example of the role of surfaces, buried interfaces, and interphases. And that's merely the beginning. Beyond the fabrication of hierarchical structures with emergent functional properties, biomineralization is a source of inspiration for innovating materials, designing new structures and processes, and developing biomedical interventions. The Gordon Research Conference (GRC) on Biomineralization aims to tie this diverse field together.

Solving structures of large macromolecular assemblies to gain fundamental insights into biological mechanisms remains a major challenge in structural biology. Cryo-EM combined with image processing is currently undergoing what has been referred to as a “resolution revolution”, making it one of the most powerful techniques to address this challenge. It also has unique capabilities to obtain structural information in situ within complex environments, and to deal with heterogeneous samples. The methods are complex and under constant development, so in depth, advanced training of new users is essential to ensure future users can adapt new technologies to expand into new areas and solve new biological problems. This course provides the theoretical and practical training covering the full breadth of cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM) techniques from sample preparation to data collection to image processing.

EMBL Course: Software Carpentry
15 Oct 2018 - 18 Oct 2018 • Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract:
Computation is an integral part of today's research as data has grown too large or too complex to be analysed by hand. An ever growing fraction of science is performed computationally and many wet-lab biologists spend part of their time on the computer. Many scientists struggle with this aspect of research as they have not been properly trained in the necessary set of skills. The result is that too much time is spent using inefficient tools when progress could be faster. This is a course for researchers in the life sciences who are using computers for their analyses, even if not full time. The target student will know a little bit of command line/programmatic computer usage, but not consider themselves an expert. A target student will have written a for loop in some language before, but will not know what git is (or at least not be very comfortable with advanced git usage).

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.

EMBL Conference: From Functional Genomics to Systems Biology
10 Nov 2018 - 13 Nov 2018 • Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract:
The main objective of this conference is to bring people together from diverse disciplines to exchange ideas, promote cross-disciplinary collaborations and to form a synthesis of appropriate systems-level approaches. The meeting is therefore purposely broad to cover all aspects of genomics to systems biology, a unique combination that is highly appreciated by the participants. Over the past decade, this EMBO conference has therefore served as an important venue in helping to shape the field, or to be more precise to help generate a community of scientists that come from very diverse disciplines, each with the common goal to understand the systems level properties of their system of interest.
