MaCKiE 2017 — International Conference on Mathematics and bio(Chemical) Kinetics
25 May 2017 - 27 May 2017 • Budapest, Hungary
Abstract:
Researchers all over the world are invited to attend the Mathematics in (bio)Chemical Kinetics and Engineering (MaCKiE) workshop between 25 and 27 May, 2017 in Budapest, the capital of Hungary. Since its first event in 2002, the MaCKiE workshop is organized in every second year. The previous meetings were held in Ghent (Belgium), Chennai (India), Heidelberg (Germany), and Houston (USA). The meeting aims to bring together scientists interested in the application of advanced mathematical methods to describe kinetic phenomena, especially chemists, mathematicians, physicist, biologists, and engineers. The acronym MaCKiE naturally comes from the title of the conference, but is also part of the German name of Mack the Knife in Brecht and Weill's Threepenny Opera, Mackie Messer, and is phonetically indistinguishable from “makkie” in Dutch, optimistically meaning “a cinch”.

BMTL2017 — Bringing Maths To Life
07 Jun 2017 - 09 Jun 2017 • Naples, Italy
Abstract:
Advances in high-throughput technologies in omics-related fields have changed the approach to the understanding of biological phenomena. The vast amounts of data made available by the -omics revolution is generating torrents of data, often referred to as big data. Dealing with big data in turn calls for generation of techniques, technologies, models, storage infrastructures and collaborative platforms to capture the often unexpected features of complex biological systems. Bringing Maths to Life 2017 will bring together leading scientists in mathematics, biology and computational biology working in different fields to create a scientific platform for data sharing, to learn about big data and -omics novel developments, and to confront ideas and realities through case studies and practical experiences. The workshop, as a mélange of different fields, will consist of selected contributions for open discussion to present and confront the most updated results at the interface of mathematics and biology in three main sessions: 1) Data: Acquisition, Pre-processing and Storage in different omics datasets; 2) Information: Data analysis, Novel -omics technologies, Application of deep learning to different -omics datasets; 3) Knowledge: Integration of different -omics data, System biology of -omics data

2017 IMB Conference: Gene Regulation by the Numbers: Quantitative Approaches to Study Transcription
19 Jun 2017 - 21 Jun 2017 • MAINZ, Germany
Abstract:
Our conference will explore the latest findings and technological developments in the field of gene regulation. The regulation of gene expression is a highly complex process in which numerous different factors play a role, such as signalling pathways, transcription factors and epigenetic modifications. With the recent surge in the development of omics technologies, researchers have generated vast amounts of data describing the contribution of these factors to controlling gene activity. However, interpreting, validating and integrating the data remains a major challenge. A combination of quantitative analysis and experimental research is therefore crucial to draw a complete picture of gene regulation.

Whole-cell modeling school 2017
04 Sep 2017 - 07 Sep 2017 • Barcelona, United States
Abstract:
Whole-cell models are promising tools for predicting phenotype from genotype by accounting for every individual gene and cell function. Whole-cell modeling has the potential to enable rational bioengineering and precision medicine. However, significant work remains to develop fully complete and accurate whole-cell models. The goal of the 2017 Whole-Cell Modeling Summer School is to provide young investigators cutting-edge training in large-scale dynamical modeling and model integration.

EMBL Course: Digital PCR
05 Sep 2017 - 06 Sep 2017 • Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract:
Real-time PCR has been adopted as the gold standard for nucleic acid target quantification in genomics research and is increasingly used for clinical analysis. However, there are some applications, such as precise measurement of copy number variation, low-abundance sequence detection, detection of rare mutations, including distinguishing rare sequences in tumours, and low-level gene expression analysis, where real-time PCR shows limitations. Digital PCR overcomes those limitations by enabling researchers to directly quantify nucleic acids, without the need for a standard curve, and provides higher precision than real-time PCR.

EMBO Workshop on Functional Genomic Variation — Integrating genomics and biophysics to comprehend functional genetic variation
08 Sep 2017 - 10 Sep 2017 • Turin, Italy
Abstract:
New genome sequencing technologies are releasing a flood of sequence variants in which disease-causing mutations must be distinguished from neutral variants. This distinction is critical to identifying disease mechanisms and is at the core of precision medicine efforts: they may provide critical information on how a patient may progress or respond to therapy. While several approaches have been developed to predict such 'functional' mutations, biophysical approaches have been relatively scarce. Biophysical methods, which directly model the effect of a sequence variant, hold promise to predict functional mutations more accurately.

The main goal of this EMBO Workshop is to bring together computational experts in genomics and biophysics to discuss recent developments and landmark discoveries on the interpretation of genetic variants and biophysical modeling. We aim to foster a lively and thought-provoking dialogue between these communities in an interdisciplinary environment in order to exchange ideas and research tools. The session topics cover the state of the art in both fields as well as presentations on work aiming to bridge the two.

Specifically, this EMBO Workshop will highlight recent progress in large- scale genomics projects that have generated large catalogs of putative disease variants in the genome to foster discussion of how biophysical approaches can aid in their accurate and rapid functional interpretation. We will take special care in encouraging young/early stage scientists and junior faculty to participate by providing ample opportunities for them to present as invited speakers and poster presenters; fostering discussion during the sessions; and hosting the event within a campus setting.
