EMBO | EMBL Symposium: Tissue Self-Organisation: Challenging the Systems
11 Mar 2018 - 14 Mar 2018 • Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract:
This EMBO/EMBL symposium aims at mechanistic understanding of self-organising properties of multi-cellular systems. One of the defining features of living systems is their capacity to break symmetry and self-organise to form reproducible shapes and patterns. However, its mechanistic understanding remains a challenge as it requires a joint effort of multi-disciplinary teams. This Symposium will bring together those working in distinct disciplines such as cell and developmental biology, tissue biophysics, theoretical modeling, organoids and synthetic biology, and provide a platform to discuss and identify key approaches and future collaborations.

EMBL Conference: The Epitranscriptome
25 Apr 2018 - 27 Apr 2018 • Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract:
The regulation of the transcriptome is key to cellular processes that underpin cell biology, development and tissue function. All classes of cellular RNA are subject to posttranscriptional modification, be it by direct chemical modification, editing or non-templated nucleotide additions. Furthermore, regulatory RNA binding proteins and enzymes that can specifically recognise posttranscriptional RNA modifications have been identified. It is now emerging that the modification status of the transcriptome is dynamic and responsive to environmental/developmental cues. Together, this has elicited the realisation of an ‘epitranscriptome’ where posttranscriptional RNA modification coupled with recruitment of effector RNA binding proteins dynamically regulates genomic output and RNA function. Importantly, mutations in core-regulators of the epitranscriptome are causative in many human diseases or congenital disorders.

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.

EMBO|EMBL Symposium: DNA Replication: From Basic Biology to Disease
07 May 2018 - 10 May 2018 • Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract:
There has been tremendous progress in the past few years regarding our understanding of DNA replication in eukaryotes, both yeast and mammals. Many important questions in the field are poised to be answered within the next decade. These include understanding DNA replication at the biochemical and three-dimensional protein structure levels. In addition, studies using high throughput technologies at the cellular and organismal levels are poised to answer how accurate replication of the genome is ensured by controlling origin firing in space and time. Several human diseases, including cancer, have already been linked to DNA replication stress, a term that refers to perturbations in DNA replication. Thus, a better understanding of how cells respond to DNA replication stress will help us understand disease development and responses to therapy. By bringing together experts in the basic biology of DNA replication and DNA replication stress, this symposium aims to fuel further progress in these important fields.

EMBO | EMBL Symposium: Biological Oscillators: Design Mechanism, Function
03 Jun 2018 - 05 Jun 2018 • Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract:
Oscillations are abundant - from hormonal oscillations with periods of days and months, to genetic fluctuations in the range of hours (circadian clock, embryonic oscillators), and metabolic and biochemical oscillations in the order of minutes (glycolytic oscillations) and seconds (Calcium-dynamics) - oscillations are central to biology across different temporal and spatial scales. At this symposium multiple disciplines will come together in order to discuss common mechanisms underlying the generation of oscillations.This symposium aims to further strengthen a new, highly interdisciplinary community composed of scientists from very different fields and who share a common interest in oscillatory phenomena and biological dynamics. As such, this meeting provides a unique platform for this emerging new community working at the interface between quantitative biology, complex oscillatory systems and physics.

EMBL Course: Whole Transcriptome Data Analysis
05 Jun 2018 - 08 Jun 2018 • Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract:
The course participants will use open-source software. R-coding skills and deep knowledge of statistics are not necessary for attendance because most analyses will be performed with docker4seq package, which was developed to facilitate the use of computing demanding applications in the field of NGS data analysis. Docker4seq package uses docker containers that embed demanding computing tasks (e.g. short reads mapping) into isolated containers. This approach provides multiple advantages:        •     user does not need to install all the software on its local server; •     results generated by different containers can be organized in pipelines; •     reproducible research is guarantee by the possibility of sharing the docker images used for the analysis. Computers for hands-on exercises will be provided along with demo data sets.

EMBL Conference: Microfluidics 2018: New Technologies and Applications in Biology, Biochemistry and Single-Cell Analysis
15 Jul 2018 - 17 Jul 2018 • Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract:
Microfluidics is a quickly growing, highly interdisciplinary field at the interface of physics, engineering, chemistry and biology. Over the past years microfluidic approaches have been used for a variety of applications, including nucleotide sequencing, functional genomics, single cell/ single molecule studies and diagnostics. Many of these applications, including next-generation sequencing devices, have been revolutionised by miniaturisation, paving the way for global gene analysis and hence transforming biology. In addition, working on the pico- to nanoliter scale not only allows a high degree of parallelisation, but also offers superb spatiotemporal control. Small objects such as cells, or even discrete parts thereof, can be exposed to unique conditions, facilitating entirely novel approaches in modern biology and chemistry.

EMBL Course: Cryo-Electron Microscopy and 3D Image Processing
02 Sep 2018 - 10 Sep 2018 • Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract:
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.

EMBO | EMBL Symposium: Principles of Chromosome Structure and Function
05 Sep 2018 - 08 Sep 2018 • Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract:
Chromosomes are arguabely one of the most important structures inside cells. Several meters of DNA are compacted into micrometer-sized assemblies in every human cell. Recent advances in our understanding of how this is achieved, and of its implications on nuclear functions, have been breathtaking. Instead of black boxes, or imaginary text-book style folding models, advanced imaging and genomics techniques have layed the foundation for the first well-informed molecular models of chromsomes. These portray chromosomes as largley self-organising entities of nucleosome-melts, organised by the universal SMC complexes and additional chromosomal proteins. Recent work culminated in the biochemical reconstitution of chromosome formation from defined components (Hirano).

EMBL Course: Attacking Open Chromatin with ATAC Sequencing
10 Sep 2018 - 14 Sep 2018 • Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract:
ATAC-Seq stands for Assay of Transposase Accessible Chromatin and is, despite its recent invention, already a widespread method to profile open chromatin on a genome-scale. The goal of this course is to teach the entire workflow of an ATAC-Seq experiment including library preparation, sequencing, data processing, and downstream analysis by addressing a real biological question that will be answered at the end of the course. We will start with the experimental ATAC-Seq protocol, highlighting the critical steps, potential pitfalls, and the most up-to-date tweaks to improve the quality of the results. After sequencing the samples we will go through the basic quality control and preprocessing steps using multiple analysis tools for next generation sequencing data. Finally, we will perform different types of analysis on the processed data, including visualisation, differential peak calling, and differential transcription factor activity profiling to come to a biological conclusion. In addition we will discuss recent advancements in technology development and algorithms for analysis and give an outlook on future perspectives and applications.

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 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.

Although great care is being taken to ensure the correctness of all entries, we cannot accept any liability that may arise from the presence, absence or incorrectness of any particular information on this website. Always check with the meeting organiser before making arrangements to participate in an event!
