Keystone Symposia - Genomic Instability and DNA Repair
ID
825260
Dates
02 Apr 2017 - 02 Jun 2017
Location
Santa Fe, New Mexico, United States
Abstract
Genome stability is the foundation upon which all cellular and organismal processes depend. This conference will grapple with the intricate array of biochemical reactions orchestrated by the cell to replicate, repair and segregate chromosomes accurately despite constant threats from spontaneous and environmentally-induced damage. Defects in these reactions lead to genomic instability, a confirmed driver of cancer and degenerative diseases. Fascinating and therapeutically crucial questions remain about the mechanisms underlying chromosome stability, and cross-disciplinary approaches are required to address them. How do epigenetic chromatin marks influence repair of underlying DNA sequences, and how can we predict the effects of chemotherapeutic agents that alter such marks? To what extent is the nucleus organized into subdomains with distinct functions; how are these subdomains altered when cells move or differentiate? How are the myriad helicases, nucleases and polymerases coordinated to safeguard genome stability, why are these molecules often mutated in human disease, and how can we ameliorate the effects of such mutations? What is the array of strategies available to cancer cells as they achieve unlimited proliferation? This conference has a history of bringing together investigators from diverse subfields who otherwise rarely meet. Cutting-edge concepts in translational, genomic, cellular, molecular, RNA and structural biology will be dissected to take the conversation to unprecedented levels of depth and breadth. The concurrent conference on “DNA Replication and Recombination” will provide additional opportunities for cross-talk. Both conferences are committed to nurturing interactions among longtime experts in the field with students, postdocs and investigators new to the field.

Keystone Symposia - Single Cell Omics
ID
825435
Dates
26 May 2017 - 30 May 2017
Location
Stockholm, Sweden
Abstract
Single cell omics is a new frontier in biology, where genome-wide data is captured at the resolution of individual cells. Single cell high-throughput technologies are being developed in the areas of imaging, mass spectrometry and DNA- and RNA-sequencing, and combinations thereof. The corresponding software and visualization tools are also a large active field of research. Single cell omics has important implications for all areas of development, differentiation and cellular decision-making, because these can now be studied at unprecedented resolution. Equally, single cell omics methods are shedding new light on immunity and cancer, due to the heterogeneous cell populations involved in both areas of biology. Therefore, these approaches are revolutionizing both basic biology as well as our understanding of disease, and technologies involved in translation to medicine. Since the field is in its infancy, and there are few meetings dedicated to this topic, there is a huge unmet need in the community to congregate and exchange ideas and information about new methods and the biological insights gained. A meeting such as this will be of continuing importance until single cell omics technologies become commonplace and established, and integrated into all areas of biology.

FASEB SRC — Mobile DNA in Mammalian Genomes
ID
877099
Dates
18 Jun 2017 - 23 Jun 2017
Location
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.

2017 IMB Conference: Gene Regulation by the Numbers: Quantitative Approaches to Study Transcription
ID
879493
Dates
19 Jun 2017 - 21 Jun 2017
Location
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.

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
ID
877036
Dates
30 Jul 2017 - 04 Aug 2017
Location
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.

Belyaev Conference
ID
877750
Dates
07 Aug 2017 - 10 Aug 2017
Location
Novosibirsk, Russia
Abstract
July 17, 2017 is the date that marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of Full Member of the USSR Academy of Sciences Dmitri K. Belyaev (1917–1985), an outstanding scientist, evolutionist and geneticist. In view of this memorable date, the Institute of Cytology and Genetics of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences and the co-organizers will be holding Belyaev Conference. Belyaev authored an all-new chapter in the theory of morphogenetic processes that explores interactions between two main factors in evolution: variability and selection. In an attempt to find the answers, he launched a large-scale, still ongoing experiment aimed at reproducing the earliest stage of the animal domestication process, with the silver fox as the test subject. The key was selection for human-friendly responses in the fox. As a result, a unique, world-famous tame fox population was created.

Location
Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract
The current speed at which novel high-throughput technologies are developed and large-scale biological data are produced offers tremendous opportunities for enhancing our molecular understanding of biological systems. One of the biggest challenges will be to interpret these large-scale biological “omics” data and to develop computational and statistical approaches to generate a coherent biological model that will enable us to address novel questions about the consequences of genetic and environmental perturbations in complex biological systems.This conference will provide a platform for bringing together leading researchers from computational biology and various “omics” fields (e.g. genomics, genetics, proteomics, metabolomics, lipidomics, etc) to present their latest work and discuss applications, future ideas and challenges for integrating large-scale biological data across different biological technologies and disciplines.

Location
Cancun, Mexico
Abstract
The DNA of eukaryotic cells is organized into chromatin fibres, where the nucleosome is the basic repeating unit. Chromatin is thus at the core of fundamental processes such as gene regulation, stem cell fate determination and cancer. By and large, these topics have traditionally been covered by separated meetings. However, recent literature indicates that the boundaries among these various disciplines are becoming less clear.
