EMBO Workshop — The yin and yang of chromosomal and extra-chromosomal DNA
17 Jul 2022 - 20 Jul 2022 • Ascona , Switzerland
Organizer:
European Molecular Biology Organization – EMBO
Abstract:
Eukaryotic cells maintain their genome as linear chromosomes in the nucleus and smaller, circular chromosomes in their autonomous organelles. Sporadically, they also contain non-chromosomal DNA, generally in circular form, due to recombination of chromosomal fragments, movement of DNA from mitochondria to the nucleus, uptake of extracellular DNA, or the presence of selfish DNA of endogenous or exogenous origin, like transposons and viruses. When it does not harm or kill the cell, this material may contribute to the evolution and structural dynamics of the genome. Reversely, selfish DNAs evolve sophisticated machineries to multiply and propagate independently of, but also frequently via chromosomes. During this meeting we will review recent insights on the complex relationships that chromosomes and extra-chromosomal DNAs entertain with each other, discussing how cells distinguish them, how their relationships contribute to the biology of the cell in health and disease, and affect genome plasticity and evolution. The intricate relationships between chromosomes and extra-chromosomal DNAs are raising fundamental questions in both basic and medical sciences. We will further conceptualize these questions and discuss how to best approach them experimentally and theoretically.

EMBO Workshop — RNA localization and local translation
17 Jul 2022 - 21 Jul 2022 • Sant Feliu De Guixols, Spain
Organizer:
European Molecular Biology Organization – EMBO
Abstract:
RNA is one of the building blocks of life and the mechanisms underlying RNA metabolism are critical for all cellular functions. In recent years, exciting discoveries have shown that targeting mRNAs to subcellular compartments and local translation plays a major role in controlling protein function from unicellular organisms to humans. However, the molecular mechanisms regulating mRNA localization and local translation, and their coordination to produce complex cellular behaviours, remain poorly understood. Interest in this field has increased with high-profile discoveries of liquid- or gel-like properties of mRNPs and the relationship of altered RNA granule assembly and localization to neurological and ageing-related disorders. Remarkable technological developments have allowed visualization of individual transcripts and their translation in single cells and in living organisms. This EMBO Workshop will bring together scientists from different fields and with complementary technical expertise to discuss recent discoveries in mRNA localization and local translation and build new collaborations to advance our understanding of these processes.

Reconstructing the Human Past – Using Ancient and Modern Genomics
13 Sep 2022 - 16 Sep 2022 • Heidelberg, Germany
Organizer:
EMBO | EMBL
Abstract:
The study of population genetic variation and the sequencing of ancient DNA represent promising new avenues for investigating human history and our evolutionary past. Population-scale sequencing projects investigating human diversity have provided us with more than a million genome wide datasets that allowed new insights into patterns of human variation and mobility, while others have obtained genome wide data from thousands of ancient human skeletons, allowing the investigation of human evolution in action and providing direct insights into population genetic dynamics in situ. Large-scale genetic variation data sets can now be integrated with genomics data from ancient remains and history records to provide novel insights into human history, cultural evolution and the genetic history of societies. Ancient DNA was furthermore used to reconstruct genomic variation of historic pathogens as well as oral and gut microbiomes in order to provide molecular fossils to study microbial evolution through time. This meeting will involve scientists from genomics, bioinformatics, microbiology, anthropology, archaeology and historians and may initiate future interactions in this exciting and timely new research area that has the potential to change the way we think about our human past and how we might study genetic variation in the future.

EMBO Workshop — Epigenome inheritance and reprogramming in health and disease
22 Sep 2022 - 26 Sep 2022 • Split, Croatia
Organizer:
European Molecular Biology Organization – EMBO
Abstract:
Over the past decades, we have seen growing evidence that environmental influences such as diet, stress, or trauma, can induce changes in individuals that are inherited by their children and grandchildren, independently of changes in the DNA sequence. This type of inheritance is often referred to as epigenetic inheritance, however, the biological mechanisms behind this phenomenon remain poorly understood. The proposed workshop will bring together experts in the field of epigenetics to discuss how the epigenome is inherited on the cellular, organismal, and population level in diverse biological contexts. Moreover, the workshop will explore how different biological systems achieve the correct balance between epigenome inheritance and reprogramming, and what sort of ramifications this has for developmental processes, disease etiology, adaptation, and evolution. Numerous recent findings in this rapidly developing field have been fueled by the advent of genomics technologies, which offer ever-increasing resolution and precision for epigenome quantification. Our meeting will thus provide a unique opportunity to discuss how these recent advances have reshaped the field and what challenges we might expect as we move forward to unravel how epigenetics participates in fundamental biological processes.

The Complex Life of RNA
12 Oct 2022 - 15 Oct 2022 • Heidelberg, Germany
Organizer:
EMBO | EMBL
Abstract:
Before the genetic information stored in DNA can be used to direct cell growth and metabolism, it has to be transferred into RNA. Messenger RNAs (mRNAs) that code for proteins and noncoding RNAs are key components in the transmission of genetic information in all life forms – from viruses to complex mammalian organisms. Exciting recent findings now reveal a new layer of information added to RNAs in the form of chemical marks (the epitranscriptome) that play a critical role in gene expression control. Following the great success of the virtual 2020 edition of this long-standing symposium, we are looking forward to returning to an in-person meeting for 2022, bringing together leaders in the RNA field, post-docs and students, with the aim of disseminating and discussing the most recent results. The program will include, among others, sessions on transcription, RNA processing and modification, mRNA export and localisation, mRNA surveillance and decay, translation and the control of mRNA expression by microRNAs.

Genotype to Phenotype: Bridging Comparative Genomics and Cell Biology
13 Nov 2022 - 16 Nov 2022 • Buxted Park, East Sussex, United Kingdom
Organizer:
The Company of Biologists Ltd
Abstract:
In this Workshop, we aim to bring together computational, cell, and evolutionary biologists to help address this major challenge of integrative cell biology. We strongly believe that actively seeking out collaboration across fields will be crucial to push cell biology beyond the boundaries of individual species into a truly comparative discipline anchored to predictive models. In turn, computational biologists will have an opportunity to guide and influence the next phase of big data generation in cell biology. Together, in deciphering the rules that underpin the relationship between the genome and the cell that encases it, we will better understand both evolution and cellular function.
