The progressive diversification of the microtubule field into subdomains has created the need for a strong meeting that unifies the community and brings together researchers from different disciplines interested in microtubule research. This symposium will continue the success of the EMBO Conference series “Microtubule Structure, Regulation and Function”, and the EMBL|EMBO Symposium series “Microtubules: From Atoms to Complex System”, which have been held every two years since 2010. The meeting will bring together early-career and established researchers from all over the world who are interested in microtubule biology and its impact on human health and disease. This tenth-anniversary meeting will feature inspirational keynote and landmark lectures, a large number of short talk opportunities selected from the submitted abstracts, lively poster sessions, and special activities focused on the visualisation of scientific results to support research, learning, and scientific communication.
- Learn the essential computing skills for NGS bioinformatics
- Understand NGS analysis algorithms (e.g. read alignment) and data formats
- Use bioinformatics tools for handling NGS data
- Perform first downstream analyses for studying genetic variation
- Compare different approaches for differential expression analysis
The purpose of this intense one week summer course is to get a deep understanding in Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) with a special focus on bioinformatics issues. Advantages and disadvantages of current sequencing technologies and their implications on data analysis will be discovered. You will be trained on understanding NGS data formats and handling potential problems/errors therein. In the summer school we will use a real-life RNA-seq dataset from the current market leader illumina.
All students will be enabled to perform important first tasks of NGS data analysis themselves. The layout of the summer school has been adapted to the needs of beginners in the field of NGS bioinformatics and allows scientists with no or little background in computer science to get a first hands-on experience in this new and fast evolving research topic.
In the evenings there will be social events, like a conference dinner, or a guided city tour through Berlin. These are always great networking possibilities.

Rapid advancement in the field of NMR spectroscopy in recent years has allowed for the development of novel methods for characterizing biomolecular structure and dynamics. The unique ability of NMR to probe biomolecules under native conditions and near physiological state has enabled researchers to address new problems in biology. This India | EMBO Lecture Course will focus on emerging developments in NMR that will spur further innovation in the areas of protein dynamics, membrane proteins, intrinsically disordered proteins, phase separation, paramagnetic proteins, and large protein complexes. We aim to bring together researchers with diverse interests to realize the full potential of the latest advances in solution and solid-state biomolecular NMR spectroscopy, and to engage early career researchers and leaders in the field in discussions about remaining challenges and the new methods and techniques being developed to address these problems. Bringing together scientists with expertise in different dimensions of NMR will enable facile exchange of ideas, spur collaborative research, and drive future breakthroughs.
