EMBL Course: Next Generation Sequencing: RNA Sequencing Library Preparation
24 Sep 2018 - 28 Sep 2018 • Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract:
The goal of this course is to teach the fundamentals of NGS library preparation and validation using the Illumina TruSeq stranded total RNA sample preparation kit. We will start with an introduction into Illumina NGS technology and the library preparation workflow. The main part will be the preparation of libraries from total RNA, with a focus on the critical steps and potential pitfalls of the protocol. Finally we will quantify and quality control the prepared libraries, before discussing solutions for total RNA sequencing data analysis.

EMBO|EMBL Symposium: The Complex Life of RNA
03 Oct 2018 - 06 Oct 2018 • Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract:
Before the genetic information stored in DNA can be used to direct cell growth and metabolism, it has to be transferred into RNA. Messenger RNAs (mRNAs) are key components in the transmission of genetic information in all life forms - from viruses to complex mammalian organisms. Exciting recent findings have revealed a remarkable degree of complexity in the lives of mRNAs and the field is rapidly developing.

2018 EMBO Workshop - RNA and genome maintenance: Cooperation and conflict management
10 Oct 2018 - 13 Oct 2018 • Mainz, Germany
Abstract:
Genomes of living organisms are exposed to damage arising from different sources. To maintain genome integrity, cells and organisms have evolved elaborate mechanisms and signaling pathways that regulate different processes including DNA repair and cell cycle. Recent findings highlighted the intricate interplay between genome stability maintenance and RNA metabolism: Transcription can interfere with DNA replication and thus pose a serious threat to genome stability. Conversely, DNA damage activates signaling pathways that globally affect transcription, splicing and RNA stability. Moreover, non-coding RNA and RNA-binding proteins play an integral part in DNA repair and DNA damage response. This EMBO Workshop will gather established scientists and junior researchers that study the mutual interactions between the DNA damage response and RNA metabolism.

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).

EMBL Course: Liquid Biopsies
15 Oct 2018 - 20 Oct 2018 • Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract:
Liquid biopsies have the advantage of being largely non-invasive and providing a vast amount of information for the detection and monitoring of diseases such as cancer. This course will provide hands-on experience in the most common techniques to detect and analyse circulating tumor cells (CTCs), cell free tumor DNA (ctDNA) and/or extracellular vesicles (exosomes) while also bringing in clinical aspects. Participants will have the opportunity to learn all aspects ranging from proper sampling through error free sequencing to data analysis.

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.

EMBL Science and Society Conference: Infectious Diseases: Past, Present, and Future
15 Nov 2018 - 16 Nov 2018 • Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract:
An astronomical number of microbes live in and on our bodies. They are normally harmless and help our body perform vital tasks, but some can cause disease, spread from person to person, and even result in full-blown epidemics. Infectious diseases are caused by bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites that infiltrate the body’s natural barriers and multiply to produce illnesses, which can range from mild to deadly. Although progress has been made to treat many infectious diseases, humankind is constantly vulnerable to a wide array of both resurgent and new microorganisms.

2018 IMB Workshop: Molecular Mechanisms of Circadian Clocks
15 Nov 2018 - 16 Nov 2018 • Mainz, Germany
Abstract:
The circadian clock underlies the regulation of numerous physiological processes, such as sleep-wake cycles, body temperature, blood pressure, hormone production or the immune system. In fact, the importance of research on circadian clocks was acknowledged by the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine, which was awarded for "discoveries of molecular mechanisms controlling the circadian rhythm". Despite its broad impact across many systems, it is only recently that we are beginning to understand the molecular connections between this clock and the physiological processes that it affects.

EMBL|Wellcome Genome Campus Conference: Proteomics in Cell Biology and Disease Mechanisms
07 Mar 2019 - 09 Mar 2019 • Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract:
Through the tremendous advances in the technology of mass spectrometry-based proteomics and its applications, the research has expanded to most areas of biology that deal with proteins. This conference will focus on the application of proteomics to cell biology and unraveling disease mechanisms by addressing conceptually novel ways to study long-standing questions in these fields. As most proteomics based conferences tend to focus on analytical chemistry, the selection of biological topics is usually uneven. Therefore, this unique EMBL|Wellcome Genome Campus Conference, which is being held at EMBL Heidelberg and will alternate yearly between Heidelberg and Hinxton, will focus on biology applications and build bridges to the disciplines where the technology’s promise is still not nearly fully realised.
