FASEB SRC — Mobile DNA in Mammalian Genomes
18 Jun 2017 - 23 Jun 2017 • Big Sky, Montana, United States
Abstract:
This SRC is focused on the dynamic nature of mobile DNAs in mammalian genomes and their phenotypic impacts. Topics will encompass mechanistic and evolutionary aspects of diverse types of retrotransposons, including LINE-1 and endogenous retroviruses, as well as DNA transposons and related human genes. Attendees will also explore interactions between these sequences and the epigenome and endogenous machinery of DNA repair and rearrangement. These elements comprise are a major portion of our DNA, and are significant contributors to genomic diversity in the form of structural variation. While the germ line is a well-known site of activity of mobile genetic elements, there is increasing evidence for expression and mobility in somatic cells and in human diseases, particularly cancers. This makes it an exciting time for the field. Moreover, new insights are being gained into roles of mobile elements in shaping gene regulatory networks in normal cells. Finally, harnessing mobile genetics elements as tools for forward genetic screens or gene delivery has provided new capabilities to change the genome. This is a long standing meeting, certain to be thought provoking, animated, and collegial all at once.

FASEB SRC — Polycystic Kidney Disease: Challenges, Differing Viewpoints and Ways Forward
25 Jun 2017 - 30 Jun 2017 • Big Sky, Montana, United States
Abstract:
The program consists of nine oral presentation and two poster sessions, a keynote address on Genome Editing for Monogenic Diseases and a special lecture on the Regulatory Path to Drug Approval in Inherited Slowly Progressive Renal Diseases. Eight oral presentation sessions are structured around a theme: 1) Genetic mechanisms; 2) Cell biology of PKD proteins, extracellular vesicles and cilia; 3) Epigenetics and microRNAs; 4) Cilia, calcium, and cAMP signaling; 5) Other pathways and model systems; 6) Disease mechanisms in other tissues and organs; 7) Cell metabolism and metabolomics; 8) Biomarkers and clinical trials. The ninth session is for late breaking abstracts.

FASEB SRC — Hematologic Malignancies
23 Jul 2017 - 28 Jul 2017 • Saxtons River, VT, United States
Abstract:
This SRC focuses on bringing together biochemists, geneticists, molecular biologists and clinicians interested in the pathophysiology of the leukemias and lymphomas, and the development of novel therapies for these diseases. Leukemia and lymphoma has provided a number of key paradigms for molecularly targeted cancer therapy, as illustrated by the remarkable success of all-trans-retinoic acid for the treatment of acute promyelocytic leukemia and tyrosine kinase inhibitor therapy for chronic myelogenous leukemia. New and promising small-molecule compounds and antibodies targeting epigenetic regulators, surface receptors and downstream signaling pathways are currently under development and will be discussed at this meeting. Added to these examples of targeted therapy, immunotherapy, including checkpoint inhibition and modified T cell-based therapies have emerged as important future anti-leukemia/lymphoma treatments.

FASEB SRC — Mechanisms in Plant Development
30 Jul 2017 - 04 Aug 2017 • Saxtons River, VT, United States
Abstract:
This SRC is an important and unique conference at the intersection of plant development, signaling, cell biology, modeling and genomics. This conference, which has been held every 2-3 years for the past 2 decades is the only meeting entirely dedicated to plant development. Plant growth and development are at the core of agricultural productivity and important for human survival. In addition, because plants evolved multicellularity independently from animals they provide insight into common and unique solutions to coordination of the behavior of cells and tissues. At this SRC, outstanding researchers from around the world present cutting edge research directed towards understanding how different aspects of plant growth and development are controlled in response to intrinsic and extrinsic cues and how those mechanisms are conserved or modified over evolutionary time. The conference format includes invited speakers and speakers selected from submitted abstracts, lots of time for poster viewing and intensive scientific discussions. Special sessions foster interactions between established scientists and young investigators. The small size of the meeting as well as the secluded location enable discussions of new ideas and emerging concepts in the rapidly moving field of plant development.

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.
