Multiomics to Mechanisms: Challenges in Data Integration
15 Sep 2021 - 17 Sep 2021 • Virtual, Any Location (virtual event)
Organizer:
EMBO | EMBL
Abstract:
This is the third in series of EMBL | EMBO symposia focusing on challenges and opportunities in data integration. Our goal is to provide a platform for discussing and presenting strategies for multiomics data integration that go beyond descriptive analyses and aim towards mechanistic, biological interpretation. For this we are inviting scientists from different fields that share their enthusiasm for integrating multi-modal data to understand biological systems. Traditionally, the audience of the meeting has been very diverse in terms of biology, yet very united in their interest in discussing about how to integrate and learn from data. Presenters are therefore asked to specifically highlight the integrative aspect of their work and how it helped in understanding biology.

The Non-Coding Genome
13 Oct 2021 - 15 Oct 2021 • Virtual, Any Location (virtual event)
Organizer:
EMBO | EMBL
Abstract:
This symposium will explore the diverse, dynamic and multifaceted roles of RNA across a spectrum of cellular processes. It will provide an interdisciplinary discussion of the roles of non-coding RNAs in both prokaryotes and eukaryotes, with the aim of enhancing our understanding of gene regulation and function. In the 50 years since RNA was identified as a central component in the flow of genetic information, it has become increasingly clear that RNA performs many additional diverse and interesting functions. Regulatory RNAs are known to play central roles across numerous biological processes required for cell viability and function. Moreover, prokaryotic and eukaryotic genomes are pervasively transcribed to generate many additional RNAs with unknown functions, raising the question: What else does RNA do?

Metabolism Meets Epigenetics
17 Nov 2021 - 20 Nov 2021 • Virtual, Any Location (virtual event)
Organizer:
EMBO | EMBL
Abstract:
Metabolism and epigenetics are intricately linked, playing a key role in development, cancer, immune signalling and ageing. This symposium brings together world-leading researchers and early-career scientists to explore this nexus with a particular focus on how metabolites and metabolic networks impact gene regulation, on recently discovered roles of metabolites in disease and how this opens novel therapeutic avenues. We will highlight molecular and computational tools enabling detection of metabolites in time and space, shedding light on metabolism, and linking metabolism with the regulation of chromatin structure, gene activity and epigenetic inheritance. We will explore recent discoveries at the frontiers of metabolism and epigenetics — focusing at the intersection of these topics — achieved in vitro, in model organisms, inhuman, and in the environment. The goal of our interdisciplinary symposium is to strengthen the emerging connection between metabolism and epigenetics, inspire transformational ideas, and help establish collaborations at this frontier of modern biology.

Recent Advances in Structural Biology of Membrane Proteins
29 Nov 2021 - 01 Dec 2021 • Virtual, Any Location (virtual event)
Organizer:
EMBO Workshop
Abstract:
Integral membrane proteins (IMPs) are encoded by 20-30 % of genes in a genome and provide key functions in the cell. Due to their hydrophobic nature, they are structurally and biochemically difficult to study. Traditionally, IMPs have been extracted using detergents which are a poor mimic of the lipid membrane and have been shown to denature membrane proteins. However, newly developed lipid-nanodisc approaches enable structural and functional studies of IMPs in a detergent-free, near-native membrane environment. Therefore, a central theme of this workshop is highlighting the importance of lipids in MP research and how they can be preserved. Various experimental and computational tools, including novel expression and stabilisation strategies, have been developed to overcome the challenges posed by a variety of MPs. These technologies have delivered spectacular insights into membrane-protein structure, dynamics and function within the last few years. This conference will bring together researchers developing and applying these new methodologies. In addition to providing a forum to exchange the latest developments in the field, the conference provides excellent opportunities for early-career scientist in the field to learn all aspects of a variety of tools to study the structure and function of membrane proteins.

One Health: Integrating Human, Animal and Environmental Health
03 Dec 2021 • Virtual, Any Location (virtual event)
Organizer:
EMBL
Abstract:
One Health is a “collaborative, multisectoral, and transdisciplinary approach—working at the local, regional, national, and global levels—with the goal of achieving optimal health outcomes by recognising the interconnection between people, animals, plants, and their shared environment”[1]. This synergistic concept has enormous potential to not only impact some of the biggest public health challenges of our time, from antimicrobial resistance, pandemic preparedness, to food safety and biosecurity – but also wider planetary health. The 2021 Science & Society Conference will examine the potential societal benefits of the multifaceted One Health methodology, analyse how successful it has been to-date, determine whether One Health could be the key to future pandemic prevention, and ascertain what steps are needed to accelerate implementation. It will explore whether the interpretation of One Health has been biased towards an anthropocentric view of “health”, and it will also seek to answer the question: will something as far-reaching as the COVID-19 pandemic be the catalyst needed to finally make the aspirational goals of One Health a reality?

SARS-CoV-2 – Two Years On: Science Meets the Challenge
10 Dec 2021 • Virtual, Any Location (virtual event)
Organizer:
EMBL
Abstract:
When the conference takes place it will be two years since the first identification of COVID-19 cases in China in late 2019 and since then the pandemic has become the most devastating challenge to global health for a century. In an unprecedented mobilisation, thousands of scientists world-wide have focused their attention, in a highly collaborative way, on understanding the SARS-CoV-2 virus, the disease it causes and its evolution, and, in developing counter measures. Most remarkably, highly efficient vaccines are now being deployed massively, starting less than a year from the initial infections and second generation vaccines will soon be available that take into account emerging variants. This online conference, the third such meeting to be organised by EMBL, will bring experts from different fields together to present our current knowledge on SARS-CoV-2 molecular biology and epidemiology and strategies and approaches to anti-infectives and vaccines, with the ongoing challenge of protecting the global population against a moving target.
