MOLINFO — Emergence of Information in Molecular Systems
22 Jul 2024 - 02 Aug 2024 • Garching, Germany
Organizer:
MIAPbP - Munich Institute for Astro-, Particle and BioPhysics an institute of the Excellence Cluster ORIGINS
Abstract:
Likely pathways from the inanimate to the animate world involve a transition that can be thought of as the emergence of information in molecular systems. Before this transition, heteropolymers already exist, but the sequence information of a polymer does not persist beyond the lifetime of the polymer. During the transition, information becomes a separate dynamical entity, which lives and changes over longer timescales than its carrier molecules. This transition does not necessarily require the existence of a full-fledged replication machinery, such as polymerase enzymes that copy informational polymers. Instead, the interplay of simpler reactions can create strong correlations in pools of informational polymers, which can also decouple the timescales of the informational dynamics from those of the polymer dynamics. This interplay is only beginning to be studied, experimentally as well as computationally and theoretically, such that many conceptual and methodological questions are currently open. The central aim of this workshop is to bring together scientists with different backgrounds, in order to attack these questions together.

818. WE-Heraeus-Seminar — The Cytoskeleton as Active Matter
30 Sep 2024 - 04 Oct 2024 • Physikzentrum Bad Honnef, Germany
Organizer:
Wilhelm and Else Heraeus-Foundation
Abstract:
Controlling matter to the point where simple stimuli can change mechanical properties and lead to force generation up to a controlled shape change represents a holy grail of modern science. While active matter research is advancing in an impressive pace, we are still far from a situation where we can claim the understanding and control required for such active materials to become part of our every-day live. While we are not able to control active matter the way we want, every cell in our body is able to do exactly that. Cells are active, non-equilibrium systems that are able to switch their mechanical properties in seconds from stiff to soft and even from solid to liquid and vice versa. This is possible because cells can precisely control the properties of their intracellular mechanical support structure, the cytoskeleton. In this WE-Heraeus Seminar, we will unite todays leading experts in the field of an active matter description of the cellular cytoskeleton to push the next generation of students and postdocs to the current knowledge level in a single seminar.

EIC24-01 — Imaging down to single-molecule resolution: STED & MINFLUX nanoscopy
21 Oct 2024 - 26 Oct 2024 • Heidelberg, Germany
Organizer:
EMBL Heidelberg
Abstract:
The course aims to train biological microscopy users in two forms of super-resolution light microscopy, Stimulated Emission Depletion (STED) Microscopy and Minimal photon fluxes (MINFLUX). Both techniques require technical understanding of the process and instrumentation, training in the method specific requirements of sample preparation and in the acquisition procedures and an understanding of how to further analyze the acquired image data. It is the aim of the course to provide the tools for the successful execution of nanoscopy experiments with these two distinct methods. The course should also allow the participants to understand the specific benefits of the different techniques and thus help them in choosing the right approach for their experimental needs.

Dagstuhl-Seminar — Machine Learning for Protein-Protein and Protein-Ligand Interactions
03 Nov 2024 - 08 Nov 2024 • Schloss Dagstuhl, Wadern, Germany
Organizer:
Schloss Dagstuhl - Leibniz-Zentrum für Informatik
Abstract:
Over the past few decades, machine learning (ML) has helped advance progress in a wide range of problems in computational biology and biochemistry, particularly towards understanding the structure and function of proteins. Similarly, in cheminformatics, ML is increasingly influencing pharmaceutical decision making and enabling novel drug design strategies. However, an area of great importance that requires further advances, likely involving significant innovations, is the understanding, prediction, and design of protein-protein and protein-ligand interactions. This Dagstuhl Seminar aims to connect the protein-ML and cheminformatics-ML communities and foster their communication with key experts in biology and chemistry. This seminar will allow us to discuss both theoretical and application-oriented ML topics in the context of protein-protein and protein-ligand interactions.

EMBO Practical Course — Integrative structural biology: solving molecular puzzles
17 Nov 2024 - 24 Nov 2024 • Hamburg, Germany
Organizer:
EMBL Heidelberg
Abstract:
Integrative structural biology has become a key strategy for determining the structure of biological macromolecules and their complexes. This method entails characterising the 3D structure through an array of complementary techniques, subsequently combining the data to form a consensus model using computational methodologies. This practical course offers a hands-on introduction to integrative structural biology. Participants will delve into the fundamentals of various experimental structure determination techniques including X-ray crystallography, cryo-EM, small-angle X-ray scattering, NMR, and mass spectrometry, through both lectures and practical exercises. Experts in the field will guide participants on how to analyse and interpret experimental data, and construct structural models across different resolution scales. A significant aspect of the course includes exploring how integrative structural biology addresses limitations of Artificial Intelligence-based structure prediction methods in modelling large complexes and their functional conformations. It will also highlight the emerging field of integrative structural biology of biomolecular complexes visualised directly in their cellular context. The course location at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory in Hamburg and the Center for Structural Systems Biology on the DESY campus will provide on-site synchrotron SAXS and MX beamlines for training. A guided visit to the European XFEL site is also included in the programme.

OMX24-01 — EMBL Conference Quantitative biology to molecular mechanisms
19 Nov 2024 - 22 Nov 2024 • Heidelberg, Germany
Organizer:
EMBL Heidelberg
Abstract:
Recent decades have witnessed a profound transformation in molecular biology research, fueled by revolutionary technologies that have greatly enhanced our ability to systematically and quantitatively measure biological molecules. The use of genomics, proteomics, and imaging have become routine, generating vast amounts of high-resolution data that characterise biological systems across multiple scales, ranging from molecules to organisms. This technological leap allows us to describe biological systems in quantitative terms with unprecedented resolution and provides a solid foundation for formulating mechanistic models that elucidate the intricacies of biological functions.

“Quantitative Biology to Molecular Mechanisms” (formerly ”From functional genomics to systems biology”) aims to bridge the gap between technologies and scales, serving as a platform for the emergence of ideas and concepts to model complex biological systems. Leaders in genomics, functional proteomics, quantitative imaging, microscopy, and theory will gather to discuss their data and models, transcending their respective fields of expertise. The meeting will be bridging three interconnected themes where systems level approaches in molecular biology research are transforming our understanding of biological systems.

A large fraction of the talks (>20) will be selected from abstracts with a priority for early stage researchers.

Dagstuhl-Seminar — Coding Theory and Algorithms for Emerging Technologies in Synthetic Biology
15 Dec 2024 - 20 Dec 2024 • Schloss Dagstuhl, Wadern, Germany
Organizer:
Schloss Dagstuhl - Leibniz-Zentrum für Informatik
Abstract:
The progress in understanding genes and genomes has given a boost to the use of synthetic DNA for biological and technological applications. Synthetic nucleic acids play a central role in synthetic biology and in emerging therapeutic paradigms, e.g., genome editing and nucleic acid vaccines. DNA-based data storage is making significant progress, and thanks to its extreme data-density, its high durability and its timelessness, it is promising to be the next standard for data archival systems. Synthetic biology and the use of synthetic DNA for information storage applications bring important algorithmic and data analysis challenges. In synthetic biology, reagent and assay design are often driven by algorithmic approaches. Novel synthesis technologies offer cost-reduction by several orders of magnitude at the cost of increased error-rate, raising new coding-theoretic questions. This Dagstuhl Seminar aims to bring together leading biologists, chemists, engineers, computer/data scientists, and theoreticians working on synthetic biology and on DNA-based data storage, to enable joint work in small groups leading to discussing and exploring recent advancements and current challenges.
