EMBO Practical Course: The Fundamentals of High-End Cell Sorting
11 Nov 2019 - 15 Nov 2019 • Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract:
This course on the fundamentals of high-end cell sorting will enable scientists to properly use the global upstream technology of cell sorting with high confidence. Cell sorting is essential to many studies, but researchers outside of core facilities have very limited knowledge how exactly sorting works and unknowingly produce erroneous samples or even scientifically crippling data. The course is intended for PhD students and postdocs who are starting to use, or already using flow cytometry based cell sorting in their research projects. Applicants with some previous active knowledge of basic principles of flow cytometry and a regular use of flow cytometers in daily research will profit most from the content of the course.

EMBO Practical Course: FISHing for RNAs: Classical to Single Molecule Approaches
15 Mar 2020 - 20 Mar 2020 • Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract:
Over the past decades it became evident that a RNA transcripts specific amount and localisation are important in order to understand the biological function of its (non-) coding gene. Whereby state-of-the-art in situ hybridisation (ISH) technologies are key to visualise these RNAs in a given tissue or cell. This course aims to highlight three powerful RNA visualisation techniques in histological tissue samples. During this course the participants will learn to validate the cellular localisation of candidate genes from transcriptome studies through conventional ISH and, the more recent cutting-edge, smFISH (Single Molecule Fluorescent ISH) and HCR-ISH (Hybridization Chain Reaction), based RNA ISH hybridisation methods. Additionally, the course will also cover essential tissue embedding protocols that are adapted for use in visually interrogating RNA transcripts in mammalian tissues.

EMBO Practical Course: Measuring Translational Dynamics by Ribosome Profiling
03 May 2020 - 09 May 2020 • Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract:
Regulation of translation is a key layer in the control of gene expression, playing a critical role in many biological and pathophysiological settings. In the last decade, methodological advances have provided comprehensive insights into cellular transcriptomes and proteomes, however, the systems-wide analysis of translation remained an unsolved experimental challenge. The recent advent of ‘ribosome-profiling’ has provided the methodological basis for comprehensive transcriptome-wide analyses of translation at sub-codon resolution by the precise and high-throughput determination of ribosomal positions on mRNA. Its application in a variety of organisms yielded novel insights into protein synthesis and its dynamic regulation, significantly advancing our understanding of the post-transcriptional regulation of gene expression. This practical course will combine theoretical sessions with hands-on experimentation and computation emphasising the key steps of the protocol and computational quality control.

EMBO | EMBL Symposium: The Neurovascular Interface
14 Sep 2020 - 17 Sep 2020 • Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract:
Neurovascular biology is a young, emerging field that aims to unravel the molecular communication between the nervous system and the vasculature. Both the nervous system and the vascular system share striking conceptual similarities in the assembly of cellular networks through guided growth and branching processes. Vascular and neural cells work together to form a number of functional tissue compartments. Endothelial cells, certain mural support cells (i.e., pericytes), astrocytes and neurons assemble the neurovascular unit, which establishes the blood-brain and blood-retina barriers. In fact, many of the most debilitating neurodegenerative diseases and cognitive decline involve disruption of the neurovascular unit or compromised vascular function in the nervous system. It has become increasingly clear that the endothelium and mural support cells function go beyond nutrient supply and are instructive and structurally required to allow nervous system function. In this symposium, we bring together researchers from vascular biology and neurobiology to foster interdisciplinary exchange and new emerging concepts on how vascular and nervous systems crosstalk to maintain organ homeostasis and function.

EMBL Conference: Molecular Mechanisms in Evolution and Ecology
30 Sep 2020 - 03 Oct 2020 • Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract:
This conference series has become known for exploring yeasts as models to study questions of general relevance to evolution and ecology. Experts will speak on a range of topics, including evolution theory, ecology, genetics, cell biology, genomics, systems biology, metabolic modelling and engineering. The focus of this conference will be on comparative and experimental strategies to explore evolutionary questions, from field studies to computer simulations to comparative genomics. Central evolutionary questions will be discussed, using yeast and a range of other species whose biology is well understood and to determine the degree to which that biology is conserved in more distantly related species. The aim is to move from correlative studies based on comparative work to more causal studies based on broad experimental support. This problem is particularly pressing in the age of cheap and easy sequencing.

EMBO | EMBL Symposium: The Complex Life of RNA
07 Oct 2020 - 10 Oct 2020 • Heidelberg, Germany
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. This remarkable complexity in the lives of RNAs will be discussed at this meeting.

EMBO | EMBL Symposium: Organoids: Modelling Organ Development and Disease in 3D Culture
21 Oct 2020 - 24 Oct 2020 • Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract:
The ability to grow human tissues from stem cells in 3D culture has the potential to revolutionise the drug discovery process and regenerative medicine. Building on a long tradition of cell and developmental biology knowledge, organoids resembling a variety of human tissues have been generated. This symposium will bring together the leading researchers in this field to establish a new research community and reveal parallels between various tissue models.

EMBO Workshop: Neuroepigenetics: From Cells to Behaviour and Disease
28 Oct 2020 - 31 Oct 2020 • Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract:
Neuroepigenetics is a young field that is attracting a lot of attention. Genome-wide association studies and mouse models continue to discover new connections between chromatin regulators and neurodevelopmental disorders and epigenetic pathways have been implicated in various physiological and pathological aspects of brain function, such as memory formation and recovery, addiction and neurodegeneration. This conference aims to provide a gathering opportunity for researchers of all levels who are interested in how gene regulation participates in the development and function of the brain, with particular attention to the chromatin-based regulation of gene expression. The key objective is to bring together, in the same meeting, two groups of scientists: neuroscientists with interest in gene regulation and molecular biologists with strong expertise in the mechanisms of transcription and epigenetics that want to apply their knowledge to understanding how the brain works. We believe the two groups can learn a lot from each other and we hope this conference can function as a catalyst for scientific exchange and collaboration between them.

EMBO | EMBL Symposium: Biological Oscillators: Design, Mechanism, Function
09 Nov 2020 - 11 Nov 2020 • Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract:
Oscillations are abundant - from hormonal oscillations with periods of days and months, to genetic fluctuations in the range of hours (circadian clock, embryonic oscillators), and metabolic and biochemical oscillations in the order of minutes (glycolytic oscillations) and seconds (Calcium-dynamics) - oscillations are central to biology across different temporal and spatial scales. At this symposium multiple disciplines will come together in order to discuss common mechanisms underlying the generation of oscillations. This symposium aims to further strengthen a new, highly interdisciplinary community composed of scientists from very different fields and who share a common interest in oscillatory phenomena and biological dynamics. As such, this meeting provides a unique platform for this emerging new community working at the interface between quantitative biology, complex oscillatory systems and physics.

EMBL Conference: From Functional Genomics to Systems Biology
15 Nov 2020 - 18 Nov 2020 • Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract:
The main objective of this conference is to bring people together from diverse disciplines to exchange ideas, promote cross-disciplinary collaborations and to form a synthesis of appropriate systems-level approaches. The meeting is therefore purposely broad to cover all aspects of genomics to systems biology, a unique combination that is highly appreciated by the participants. Over the past decade, this EMBL conference has therefore served as an important venue in helping to shape the field, or to be more precise to help generate a community of scientists that come from very diverse disciplines, each with the common goal to understand the systems level properties of their system of interest.

EMBL Conference: In situ Structural Biology - From Cryo-EM to Integrative Modelling
06 Dec 2020 - 08 Dec 2020 • Heidelberg, Germany
Abstract:
There is an increasing awareness that mechanistic structural information on molecular machines is ideally generated within the context of intact cells in order to fully grasp how they function in a complex native environment. Recent technological advances have nurtured the development of such in situ structural biology approaches in several disciplines, including cryo-EM, mass spectrometry, super-resolution microscopy, NMR, computational modelling and others.
