ID
833351
Dates
05 Mar 2017 - 08 Mar 2017
Location
Boston, Massachusetts, United States
Abstract
Of the 7000 known rare diseases, only a fraction have their molecular and mechanistic bases delineated, and many other diseases have yet to be discovered. Characterization of these disorders will reveal new biochemical pathways and cell biological processes, point to potential drug targets, and provide hope for millions of affected individuals. This meeting will address approaches and best practices in pursuing rare and undiagnosed disorders, limitations in data sharing as a barrier to new disease discovery, and examples of successful descriptions of new diseases, mechanisms, and treatments. Specific aims include fostering the development of expertise in rare diseases and the definition of their natural histories; an international network of scientists and physicians collaborating on new disease discovery by sharing phenotypic and sequence data; and new therapeutic approaches based upon rare and new disease mechanisms. Through this meeting, participants should become familiar with rare and undiagnosed disease programs, acquire insights into new disease mechanisms, learn about potential therapeutic targets, and establish collaborations that enhance rare disorder expertise and new disease discovery. The meeting will bring together physicians who are expert in rare disorders with scientists who know metabolic pathways and mechanisms, advancing understanding and therapy. A desired outcome of the meeting includes developing lists of clinical and basic research experts for synergistic collaborations, and creating an international organization to perpetuate the joint investigation of rare and new diseases.

Keystone Symposia - Adaptations to Hypoxia in Physiology and Disease
ID
825228
Dates
05 Mar 2017 - 09 Mar 2017
Location
Whistler, British Columbia, Canada
Abstract
Cellular responses to changes in oxygen availability have important implications for both physiology and pathophysiology, in particular in the setting of solid tumor progression. A number of hypoxia-inducible pathways have been characterized, such as the large transcriptome regulated by hypoxia-inducible factors (HIFs). However, many other oxygen-sensing pathways exist within the cell. The aim of this meeting is to disseminate up-to-date information on basic mechanisms of cellular and tissue hypoxia responses, and discuss the impact of these responses on physiology and cancer, with an emphasis on HIF-independent, but nevertheless fundamental, oxygen-sensing pathways. Outcomes of this meeting will include the dissemination of new scientific knowledge, the discussion of new methodologies, the education of graduate students and postdoctoral fellows in this discipline, and promotion of new collaborations between clinicians, basic researchers and industrial partners. This will be the eighth Keystone Symposia meeting on Hypoxia, which brings together academic, clinical and industrial researchers to enhance synergy between these groups and develop translational strategies for targeting hypoxic stress responses for therapeutic benefit.

Keystone Symposia - DNA Replication and Recombination
ID
825238
Dates
02 Apr 2017 - 06 Apr 2017
Location
Santa Fe, New Mexico, United States
Abstract
DNA replication and recombination are common to all cells. Errors in these processes lead to many diseases in humans, including cancer, and many fundamental questions are still unresolved. Due to recent technical advances in microscopy and other techniques, these dynamic processes can now be studied in time and space in both prokaryotes and eukaryotes. Moreover, breakthroughs in the biochemical reconstitution of processes in DNA replication and recombination repair as well as single particle electron microscopy promise to reveal new mechanisms at near-atomic resolution; and new DNA sequencing technologies make it possible to study these key processes in great details. Mechanistic similarities across the three domains of life provide new basic principles while differences identify potential targets for therapeutic intervention.

Keystone Symposia - Genomic Instability and DNA Repair
ID
825326
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
825479
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.

Location
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
ID
876992
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
877816
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.
