Keystone Symposia: Plant Signaling - Molecular Pathways and Network Integration
21 Jan 2018 - 24 Jan 2018 • Tahoe City, United States
Abstract:
Natural products, the structurally diverse family of small molecules produced by living organisms in an idiosyncratic fashion, have provided the basis for the majority of our therapeutic agents used to treat infectious diseases, cancer and immune disorders. Whole genome sequencing of producing organisms, especially bacteria and fungi, reveals that we have discovered only a fraction of these biosynthetically derived small molecules; a substantial fraction of natural product chemical space still represents “dark matter” (i.e., molecules predicted by bioinformatics analysis that have yet to be observed experimentally). Diversity springs from variations in genetically encoded biosynthetic enzymes, environmental stimuli that regulate expression of these genes and the inherent combinatorial expansion resulting from multi-enzyme biosynthetic pathways. Closing this gap between our current inventory and the genomic potential has become an important goal for basic and applied science; synthetic biology coupled with bioinformatic analysis has become the primary research tool for this effort. Bioinformatic mining continues to reveal the enzymes and pathways that nature uses, and synthetic biology has begun to reassemble or refactor these pathways to produce known and unknown products in new hosts. This conference brings together researchers in fields ranging from microbiology to botany, bioinformatics, gene synthesis and assembly, covering the spectrum from basic to industrial applications.

Keystone Symposia: Natural Products and Synthetic Biology - Parts and Pathways
21 Jan 2018 - 24 Jan 2018 • Olympic Valley, United States
Abstract:
Phenotypic plasticity is the quintessential characteristic of plant development and adaptation under fluctuating environments. This characteristic is the result of numerous signal sources (extra-, intra- and intercellular) being sensed, integrated and interpreted by a plethora of signaling components which are interacting in a highly coordinated manner. Recent advances in molecular biology, chemistry (i.e., chemical genetics and development of novel probes) and computational approaches (i.e., mathematical modeling and network reconstruction) have greatly facilitated the discovery of novel signaling pathways as well as providing detailed molecular mechanisms for key components of the existing signaling pathway. However, many have yet to be discovered. The conference features leaders in the plant signaling field and encapsulates the most recent advances in this field, from single molecule chemistry to large-scale network analysis, with an emphasis on research areas such as growth and development, environmental responses and biological interactions in both model and non-model plant species. Therefore, this meeting will bring together a diverse community of scientists to interact, collaborate and share novel ideas, leading to the translation of this knowledge into new applications. Ultimately, unraveling the complexity of plant signaling networks will be an important step forward in securing global food production.

Keystone Symposia: Cell Death, Inflammation and Adaptation to Tissue Stress
21 Jan 2018 - 25 Jan 2018 • Breckenridge, Colorado, United States
Abstract:
Cell death and inflammation are ancient processes of fundamental biological importance in both normal physiology and human disease pathologies. The recent observation that cell death regulatory components have dual roles in cell death and inflammation suggests that these proteins function not primarily to kill, but to coordinate tissue repair and adaptation to tissue stress. This perspective unifies cell death components as positive regulators of tissue repair that replace malfunctioning or damaged tissues and enhances the resilience of epithelia to insult. It is now recognized that cells that die do not do so silently, but release a variety of paracrine signals to communicate with their cellular environment to ensure tissue regeneration and wound healing. The goals of the conference are to: 1) Explore the gaps in our current understanding of how dead and dying cells influence inflammatory responses in tissue repair and disease settings; 2) Foster communication and collaborations between scientists focusing on different areas of biology (cell death, innate immunity, adaptive immunity, cancer and model organisms); 3) Pinpoint nodes of intersection linking all research fields; 4) Define key-regulatory paradigms at these intersections, and discuss molecular mechanisms that control these processes; 5) Share information on possible consequences of deregulation; 6) Discuss translational aspects and potential drug targets, e.g. in pre-clinical models of malignant disease.

Gordon Research Conference — Predator-Prey Interactions
28 Jan 2018 - 02 Feb 2018 • Ventura, CA, United States
Abstract:
The 2018 Gordon Research Conference on Predator-Prey Interactions brings together speakers from a range of disciplines to address both the underlying mechanisms and emergent impacts of the predator-prey dynamic. The neurobiology of responses to risk in individual prey can, when aggregated across a population, profoundly affect surrounding ecosystems. Similarly, researchers are increasingly aware of how quickly selection and epigenetic forces can shift prey phenotypes and alter future interactions with predators. In both cases, the connections between small-scale (within an individual or at a single point in time) and large-scale (across ecosystems or generations) processes illustrate how exploring the "linkage map" of predator-prey interactions across scales can identify new fields of research and synergize the collaborations necessary to address them.

Abstract:
The 2018 Gordon Research Conference on DNA Damage, Mutation and Cancer is developed around the theme of exploiting fundamental knowledge to advance treatment and prevention. Rich and ever-increasing information is available on the specific mutations that are the molecular basis of cancer. Many mutations can be traced to specific types of damage to the DNA, while others arise from DNA replication errors or unknown causes. Technologies are being refined to determine the origins of these mutations, and monitor the accuracy and reproducibility of cancer genomic data. Biological and structural analyses can assess which mutations are functionally relevant. Specific mutations can confer vulnerabilities, making individual cancers more responsive to treatment with DNA damaging agents.

Abstract:
Our view of mitochondria is rapidly transforming. Recent advances in animal models, systems-based approaches, and imaging techniques have revealed that mitochondria have diverse functions beyond bioenergetics and biosynthesis. Their functions are linked to their surprisingly dynamic behavior, as mitochondria adapt and respond to a plethora of cellular and tissue-specific organismal needs. Given that mitochondrial dysfunction is associated with metabolic disorders, cancer, and neurodegeneration, there is an urgent need to understand how mitochondrial events are orchestrated and integrated within the cell and organism. This Cell Symposium aims to bring together leading researchers who study mitochondrial function, regulation and mechanism to build a complete picture of mitochondria as a platform to integrate signaling pathways and cellular processes in physiology and disease. This wide-ranging Cell Symposium will showcase the latest research on: •Transport and Biogenesis •Dynamics and Inter-organelle Contacts •Quality Control and Mitochondrial Communication •Metabolism and Energetics •Mitochondria in Physiology and Disease

Gordon Research Conference — Cyclic Nucleotide Phosphodiesterases
10 Jun 2018 - 15 Jun 2018 • Newry, ME, United States
Abstract:
The 2018 Gordon Research Conference on Cyclic-Nucleotide Phosphodiesterases (PDEs) will focus on efforts to develop the therapeutic potential of phosphodiesterase modulators while also highlighting new biology relevant to the PDEs. As the sole means for terminating the intracellular signals carried by ubiquitous second messengers cAMP and cGMP, the PDEs are uniquely positioned to regulate a host of signaling cascades involved in cell to cell communication, metabolism and gene regulation. Unique elements of the quaternary structure of each family has allowed for the generation of selective inhibitors despite the high level of sequence identity in the active site of the enzymes. Only two families, PDE 6 and 11, still await the development of useful preclinical tools/inhibitors and drug candidates are in or nearing human studies for PDE 1, 2,3,4,5, 9 and 10. Clinical data is accumulating on the effects of PDE 3, 4, 5, 9 and 10 inhibition although only the effects of PDE5 inhibition have been subject to extensive, albeit poorly undocumented, profiling.

Abstract:
The Gordon Research Seminar on Diffraction Methods in Structural Biology is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas.

A new wave of crystallography experiments has emerged in recent years that expand the scope of experiments beyond traditional structure determination. Time-resolved experiments, X-ray free electron lasers (XFELs), and in-situ room-temperature experiments now provide a wide range of methods to probe protein structures in a crystalline environment. These offer the possibility to determine protein structures as a function of time and physical experimental parameters, and promise to drastically change our understanding of protein structures and dynamics. This seminar will cover the full range of these new possibilities within crystallography.

Gordon Research Conference — Biomineralization
29 Jul 2018 - 03 Aug 2018 • New London, NH, United States
Topics:
Biomineralization means many different things to different people. Biomineralization is the outcome of a genetic program that results in an anatomical feature, the product or target of pathological processes that threaten health and well-being, evidence of evolutionary mechanisms, the consequence of a complex choreography of cellular events, an effect of reciprocal action between environment and living systems, the result of phase transformations and self-assembly, or a quintessential example of the role of surfaces, buried interfaces, and interphases. And that's merely the beginning. Beyond the fabrication of hierarchical structures with emergent functional properties, biomineralization is a source of inspiration for innovating materials, designing new structures and processes, and developing biomedical interventions. The Gordon Research Conference (GRC) on Biomineralization aims to tie this diverse field together.
