Generation and Contol of Forces in Cells
11 Jun 2018 - 29 Jun 2018 • Stockholm, Sweden
Abstract:
The program will bring together a group of theoretical physicists, mathematicians, experimental biologists, and experimental biophysicists, to study the mechanisms by which (i) protein assemblies, such as biopolymers, exert forces in cells, (ii) protein assembly dynamics in cells are regulated by forces, and (iii) the dynamics of force-generating assemblies are controlled by signaling pathways. The program will enhance the formation of collaborative links between experiment and theory, as well as those between theorists using different methodologies. It will also clarify the links between apparently disparate, but related phenomena by bringing in individuals with a broad range of backgrounds. Finally, it will enhance the development of the mechanobiology community in the Nordic countries.

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.

FASEB SRC: Machines on Genes
24 Jun 2018 - 29 Jun 2018 • Snowmass Village, CO, United States
Abstract:
This FASEB SRC will unite scientists pushing the boundaries of our molecular understanding of the nucleic acid transactions which facilitate life. Information encoded in RNA and DNA is accessed, maintained, decoded and degraded by a staggering number of proteins, protein/DNA and protein/RNA complexes that catalyze specific fundamental enzymatic reactions which drive nucleic acid transactions— not limited to, but including key cellular processes such as DNA replication and repair, recombination, transposition, transcription, translation and epigenetic gene regulation. These protein and RNA machines are impacted in varying disease states, and can be exploited for therapeutic advantage including using CRIPSR gene editing technologies. The use of emerging biophysical methodologies such as single-molecule spectroscopy/microscopy and small-angle X-ray scattering, cryo electron microscopy, and chemical biology has opened new doors to exploration of nucleic acid metabolism. This meeting will highlight exciting efforts underway to decipher the anatomy, architecture and mechanisms of these protein and protein-nucleic acid machines in order to understand how they recognize, engage, and manipulate the structure of DNA and RNA. We aim to unite established and future leaders in the field to exchange ideas and formulate new collaborations. We highly encourage student, postdoctoral trainees, and young investigators to attend, and will encourage their attendance with student and postdoc travel scholarships and a large number of oral presentations, to be selected from the abstracts. Selected talks, poster presentations, and recreational activities will present students and postdoctoral fellows with both formal and informal networking opportunities. Additional organized "meet the experts" panel discussions will help junior colleagues navigate various topics related to careers and women in science. This exciting program will facilitate cross-talk between multiple areas of science, techniques, and skill levels to inspire new innovations and quality science in the area of nucleic acid structural and mechanistic biology.

FASEB SRC: Dynamic DNA Structures in Biology
08 Jul 2018 - 13 Jul 2018 • Olean, NY, United States
Abstract:
For decades after its discovery, genomic DNA was believed to exist only as a right-handed, double helix known as B-DNA. Its sole functions were to serve as a template for RNA synthesis or as a template for the production of identical duplexes during chromosome replication. These core beliefs were shaken by the discovery that DNA is covalently modified and packaged into chromatin, and that the molecule can form an enormous variety of non-B alternative structures, including cruciforms, a left-handed helix, three- and four-stranded helices, and slip-strand configurations. Transient denaturation of the duplex during all major DNA transactions (replication, transcription, repair and recombination) promotes dynamic transitions to non-B DNA structures as well as other structures of interest such as R-loops, D-loops, reversed replication forks, Holiday junctions, and other complex DNA-DNA or DNA-RNA structures. Furthermore, repetitive DNA sequences, which are highly overrepresented in genomic DNA, are particularly prone to structural transitions. Studies conducted in many labs worldwide have confirmed that structural transitions are not only central to normal functions of the genome, but also are responsible for occasional malfunctioning that leads to a disease state. The most striking example is expansion of structure-prone DNA repeats, which is responsible for more than thirty hereditary neurological and developmental diseases.

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.

FASEB SRC: Protein Phosphorylation Networks in Health and Disease
22 Jul 2018 - 27 Jul 2018 • Snowmass Village, CO, United States
Abstract:
This FASEB SRC focuses on protein phosphorylation - the most prevalent post-translational modification that regulates almost all aspects of development and normal physiological function of an adult organism. Decades of research has revealed the complexity of the regulatory networks involved in control of protein phosphorylation and their exceptional vulnerability as target of dysregulation in many disease states. Protein kinases, which catalyze phosphorylation, are one of the most successful targets of currently FDA-approved therapeutics, but emerging mechanisms of drug resistance mandate deeper mechanistic understanding of their function, as well as investigation of innovative alternative strategies to targeting the aberrant phosphorylation networks.

Abstract:
This FASEB SRC will focus on virus assembly, virus structure, and structure-based mechanisms of virus replication (entry, replication, virus-host interactions). Studies in these areas provide insight into a multitude of cellular processes from the perspective of relatively simple and relatively easy to manipulate organisms, viruses and bacteriophages. Moreover, these cellular processes are critical for the pathogenicity of infectious viruses and therefore are targets for established and novel antiviral therapeutics. Many new therapies are a direct result of basic scientific investigations, which have been the emphasis of past FASEB Virus Structure and Assembly conferences.

FASEB SRC: Protein Folding in the Cell
22 Jul 2018 - 27 Jul 2018 • Olean, NY, United States
Abstract:
This FASEB SRC addresses the process of how proteins acquire their beautiful three-dimensional structures, required for functionality. Protein folding has been studied for decades in the test tube, and while this approach continues to aid our understanding of the fundamental physical and chemical forces that govern folding, there has been a concomitant and growing appreciation that the cellular environment presents unique challenges – as well as unique support systems – that cannot be easily captured in the test tube. Understanding how proteins fold and why they misfold are major goals in the quest to understand the mechanisms of the cellular protein quality control machineries, The knowledge gained will help us to find strategies to correct misfolding diseases, which include Alzheimer’s and cystic fibrosis.

Abstract:
One-carbon metabolism and related dietary factors (folic acid and vitamin B12, as well as vitamin B6, choline, riboflavin, methionine, serine, cysteine, and others) play important roles in a vast array of essential physiological functions. Disruptions of one-carbon metabolism due to dietary, pharmacological, environmental, and genetic factors impact most of the major health issues of our time, including vascular disease, cancer, neurodegenerative disease (Alzheimer’s disease and dementia, Parkinson’s disease), birth defects, and comorbidities associated with obesity and diabetes such as renal disease. The “Folic Acid, Vitamin B12, and One-Carbon Metabolism” SRC has been meeting every other year since the mid-1980s. From its inception, the conference has embraced an integrative philosophy that brings together basic researchers, physician scientists, and policy makers to share cutting edge research and to discuss its ramifications for health at both the personal and population levels. For 2018, in addition to updates on new findings related to the fundamental biochemistry of folates, B12, and one-carbon metabolism, session topics will focus on 1) Vitamin B12 transporters: binders, receptors & chaperones, 2) Oxidative stress, one-carbon metabolism and development, 3) In utero effects of disruption in one-carbon metabolism, 4) One-Carbon metabolism and neurodegenerative disease, 5) Choline – The good, the bad and the ugly, 6) Interactions between pharmacologic agents, xenobiotics and 1C metabolism, 7) Novel aspects of transsulfuration, and 8) The many faces of MTHFR. Conference attendees can expect thought-provoking oral communications from leaders in the field, stimulating discussions during questions and answers sessions and expanded opportunities for students and post-doctoral trainees to present their work in both oral and poster sessions, as well as formal and informal opportunities to exchange ideas and establish new collaborations.

FASEB SRC: The Lung Epithelium in Health and Disease
29 Jul 2018 - 03 Aug 2018 • Olean, NY, United States
Abstract:
This FASEB SRC will bring together scientists in academia and industry for live discussions on the most recent progresses in the field of lung epithelium biology. The epithelium of the lung allows airway flow and provides an essential barrier against infection and other detrimental exposures, which is made possible through highly orchestrated processes during development, homeostasis and repair. The goal of this meeting is to advance our understanding of these fundamental processes by providing a highly interactive platform for senior and junior scientists with expertises in biology, disease models and techniques. Topics of special interest in this FASEB meeting include airway development, stem cells and regeneration, cell-cell interactions that orchestrate injury responses and repair, and the impact of newest tools on lung biology research. Together, we believe we will gain insights into mechanisms of airway diseases that involve single gene, complex genetic interactions, and environmental impact. The knowledge will lay the foundation for the identification of new drug targets and the improvement of treatment strategies for devastating lung diseases, such as asthma, COPD, and cystic fibrosis.

FASEB SRC: Immunological Aspects of Metabolic Syndrome
12 Aug 2018 - 17 Aug 2018 • Snowmass Village, CO, United States
Abstract:
This FASEB SRC focuses on the role of the immune system in the development and exacerbation of the many conditions that encompass metabolic syndrome. Obesity and metabolic syndrome have increased at epidemic proportions over the past two decades. Our understanding of how the immune system is influenced by adipose tissue has evolved greatly, even as this epidemic continues to rage. Once considered as primarily a fuel storage organ, adipose tissue is now known to have a number of immunomodulatory properties, which affect whole body physiology, and importantly, are thought to account for many of the complications of obesity including insulin resistance and cardiovascular disease. The presence and activity of immune cell types such as macrophages and T cells within adipose tissue is more recently being teased out given the appreciation of obesity and insulin resistance as inflammatory in nature. It is becoming increasingly clear that in addition to altering adipose tissue function, immune cells impact the physiology and homeostasis of other organs such as the liver, CNS, skin and intestine in obesity. The immunological and inflammatory influences of obesity contribute to the complications that make up metabolic syndrome including insulin resistance, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease.

2nd Frankfurt Conference on Quality Control in Life Sciences
02 Sep 2018 - 06 Sep 2018 • Frankfurt am Main, Germany
Abstract:
The international Frankfurt Conference on Quality Control brings scientists on all career stages together to discuss mechanisms of cellular homeostasis and their impact on pathogenesis of diseases. Cellular quality control mechanisms are essential to maintain cell survival and homeostasis, and their malfunction leads to severe damage, ultimately contributing to and/or causing a variety of malignant and fatal diseases. Whilst many molecular mechanisms driving pathogenesis have been uncovered already, we are only beginning to understand the interconnectivity and concerted regulation of these pathways and the influence of contextual factors. A deeper knowledge of the role of cellular quality control pathways, e.g. in cancer, neurodegeneration or development, holds enormous potential to better understand disease onset and/or progression and potentially develop novel treatments.

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.

4th Plant Protease and Programmed Cell Death Symposium
11 Sep 2018 - 13 Sep 2018 • Ghent, Belgium
Abstract:
After three successful conferences on Plant Proteases and Programmed Cell Death organized in Hemavan, Sweden (2011); Barcelona, Spain (2013); and Oxford, UK (2016), it is our pleasure to host the fourth meeting in the beautiful medieval town of Ghent, Belgium. The roles of proteases in cell death, immunity, and developmental processes in plants have received increasing attention over the past years. On the one hand, proteases exert a key regulatory level of posttranslational modification on their substrates. On the other hand, proteolytic cascades are involved in household functions, as well as responsible for point-of-no-return decisions during developmentally or environmentally controlled programmed cell death. Despite their importance, however, we still know little about the functions and mode-of-actions of individual plant proteases. Over the past years, several research groups have tackled the functional characterization of plant proteases from different angles. Some laboratories are advancing technology development, others focus on biological processes that depend on protease activities, while again others elucidate the biochemistry of specific protease families.

FASEB SRC: Small GTPases in Membrane Processes: Trafficking, Autophagy and Disease
23 Sep 2018 - 28 Sep 2018 • Leesburg, VA, United States
Abstract:
The fields of membrane trafficking in general and autophagy in particular got the Nobel Prize for Medicine in 2013 and 2016, respectively. This work laid the foundation for understanding these processes at a mechanistic detail and high precision. The question of how membrane structure and function is regulated is highly relevant to human health and disease. Regulation of membrane-associated processes is a very dynamic field relevant to various disciplines, from neuroscience to cell and developmental biology. Small GTPases have emerged as important regulators of all membrane trafficking processes. These GTPases together with their various interactors regulate intracellular trafficking, organelle dynamics, proteostasis, signaling and metabolism. Mutations in these molecules result in human diseases, from inherited to complex disorders. For example, dis-regulation of small GTPase networks has been implicated in multiple diseases, including cancer and neurological disorders.

Keystone Symposia: Drivers of Type 2 Diabetes - From Genes to Environment
07 Oct 2018 - 11 Oct 2018 • Seoul, South Korea
Abstract:
The prevalence of diabetes mellitus is increasing worldwide and is a major threat to global public health that requires urgent action. Over the last few decades, significant advances have been made in terms of identifying novel susceptibility genes and signaling pathways that play pivotal roles in the pathogenesis of diabetes and its related metabolic disorders. However, a major gap in understanding the current global epidemic of diabetes is the lack of knowledge regarding how molecular interactions between the environment and the susceptibility genes are regulated within an altered metabolic milieu. This meeting will address these unresolved gaps in the etiopathogenesis of diabetes and focus on the latest advances that are linked to the molecular drivers of diabetes mellitus. Topics include: systemic regulation of adipocytes in diabetes; microvesicles, noncoding RNA, and intercellular communications; physiological drivers in hunger and energy homeostasis; epigenetics and metabolic control in diabetes; novel signaling players related to insulin resistance; adaptation of beta cell to chronic metabolic stress; environmental triggers in diabetes and metabolic diseases; and molecular targets for nutrient sensing and signaling. The organizers anticipate that this meeting will bring about a major shift in addressing the causes of diabetes mellitus, as the topics emphasized in this meeting have not yet been explored widely. Through the novel discoveries of diabetes research presented at this meeting, we hope to provide evidence-based insight to favorably impact people with diabetes across the world.

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).

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.

Keystone Symposia: From Rare to Care - Discovery, Modeling and Translation of Rare Diseases
11 Nov 2018 - 14 Nov 2018 • Vienna, Austria
Abstract:
Work over the past 30 years has resulted in the identification of genes for ~50% of the estimated 7,000 rare genetic diseases; it is predicted that most of the remaining disease genes will be identified in the next 10 years. Approximately 500 medicinal products are currently on the market for rare diseases. The accelerating pace of rare disease gene identification means, in effect, an almost commensurate increase in molecularly defined, readily diagnosable, but nonetheless poorly understood and untreatable, diseases. This meeting will examine the current and future bottlenecks to gene discovery, disease modeling, and therapeutic approaches and suggest strategies to enable progress in this regard. Ultimately, successful deployment of precision medicine for rare diseases will inform such approaches more broadly.

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.

Keystone Symposia: Leveraging Genomic Diversity to Promote Animal and Human Health
25 Nov 2018 - 29 Nov 2018 • Kampala, Uganda
Abstract:
Genomic variation is a driving force of animal and human health, and susceptibility to disease. Yet our knowledge rarely spans human ethnic genomic diversity and genomic variation between animal breeds, limiting their translational impact. This symposium aims to: 1. Highlight translational genomics in humans and animals (clinical medicine and animal breeding for health and productivity) 2. Explore synergies and cross-disciplinary learning 3. Explore opportunities to leverage genomic diversity to push the current boundaries to translation 4. Address translation and affordability in low- and middle-income settings. Large-scale genomics initiatives like Genome England, the US Precision Medicine initiative, and the Human Heredity and Health in African Consortium, are providing extraordinarily large data sets to explore useful genotype-phenotype connections. Equivalent initiatives for animal data are starting. This meeting will explore the translation of genomic research in animals and humans; high and low-resourced environments; ethnic diversity; and cultural context. Identifying common strands in animal and human health opens up opportunities for repurposing of ideas and applications, and for finding innovative solutions for translational genomics through cross-boundary communities of practice.
