3rd Ubiquitin Function in Health and Disease
07 Jul 2024 - 10 Jul 2024 • Lisbon, Portugal
Organizer:
Fusion Conferences
Abstract:
We have reached a fascinating point in our research on the ubiquitin system’s function, physiology and roles in disease. The attachment of ubiquitin to a protein in the cytosol was first identified as a means to enable degradation of proteins in the cytosol by the proteasome. It was much later that it was discovered that the ubiquitin system fulfils another crucial cellular function: through the dynamics offered by ubiquitination and subsequent deubiquitination it gives a multitude of signalling pathways the required plasticity to initiate but also to limit their signalling output in an exquisitely controlled manner. Whereas certain signalling-related functions employ ubiquitin’s proteasome-targeting function, e.g. the activation of NF-kB following degradation of I-kB, most signalling-related functions of the ubiquitin system are mediated by different types of ubiquitin chains acting as scaffolds for the recruitment of signalling modules to protein complexes which serve as platforms for the triggering of specific signalling complexes.

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.

4th Exploring DNA Repair Pathways as Targets for Cancer Therapy Conference
07 Oct 2024 - 10 Oct 2024 • St. Julians, Malta
Organizer:
Fusion Conferences
Abstract:
Defects in DNA damage repair and checkpoint control are underlying mechanisms driving tumorigenesis, since they allow for the accumulation of genetic alternations. Indeed, defects associated with these pathways are the underlying cause of several human cancer-prone syndromes. On the other hand, defects in DNA repair and checkpoint control create vulnerabilities in cancer cells that can be targeted by DNA damaging agents and inhibitors that disrupt checkpoint pathways. More recently, defective DNA repair and checkpoint regulation have been shown to influence R-loop formation, replication fork stability, and innate immunity. These new findings not only reveal additional mechanisms contributing to tumorigenesis, but also provide new targets for cancer therapy. This conference will focus on exploring these vulnerabilities, taking advantage of the synthetic lethality concept, and targeting specific DNA repair and checkpoint pathways for cancer therapy, either alone or in combination with chemotherapy, radiation therapy, targeted therapy, and immunotherapy. This conference will bring together basic, translational and clinical investigators to discuss current and future directions, opportunities and obstacles to the development of these anti-cancer modalities and how to best translate these concepts to clinical practice.

4th Epigenetics Conference
10 Oct 2024 - 13 Oct 2024 • St. Julians, Malta
Organizer:
Fusion Conferences
Abstract:
Chromatin is the template of life, the carrier of genetic information and the core regulator of fundamental processes such as gene expression and stem cell fate determination. Chromatin dysfunction on the other hand can trigger various diseases, including cancer. Although chromatin structure and function and the mechanisms of disease and their diagnostic and therapeutic approaches are the subject of many meetings, conferences bringing them together are less frequent. The boundaries among these various disciplines are disappearing and meeting on "Epigenetics: from mechanisms to disease" will focus on the discussion of the role of chromatin architecture, epigenetics, stem and single cell biology in cancer and other diseases. The talks will cover a broad range of topics, including chromosome organisation, long-range interactions, chromatin assembly, stem cell regulation/differentiation, RNA-based mechanisms, transcription regulation, DNA methylation and hydroxymethylation, exploiting the power of genome engineering technologies, single-cell approaches, cutting edge epigenomics and imaging approaches and novel cell systems such as organoids. Speakers have been selected to broadly reflect lessons learned from a variety of model organisms and experimental approaches.

Abstract:
The field of biology is experiencing a transformative phase, thanks to remarkable advances in single-particle cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM). The explosion of high-resolution cryo-EM maps is challenging computational biophysics to rapidly and robustly discern mechanistic implications from the experimental data. Emerging theoretical approaches aim at processing, validating, complementing, and interpreting cryo-EM data, overcoming issues in image analysis, map refinement, and the simulation of large biomolecules. This thematic meeting seeks to explore the interface between computational biophysics and cryo-EM, highlighting the breadth of work that spans these two fields, and encouraging new synergies. Our goal for this meeting is to maximize the potential of computations and experiments in the field of single-particle cryo-EM.

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.

Biological Physics of Biomolecular Condensates: Bridging Theory and Experiment
16 Jun 2025 - 18 Jun 2025 • Santa Barbara, United States
Organizer:
UC Santa Barbara, Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics
Abstract:
Living cells have evolved robust mechanisms to coordinate the activity of many different molecules in space and time. For example, cells concentrate specific molecules into membrane-less compartments called biomolecular condensates. Experimentalists have generated an ever-growing list of condensates, which participate in diverse biological functions, such as gene expression, signal transduction, and neurotransmission. In addition, these condensates exhibit a wide range of lifetimes, sizes, mechanochemical properties, and architectures. Despite recent progress in characterizing molecular interactions leading to condensation, how the emergent physical properties of condensates mediate their biological functions is poorly understood. This conference will bring together a diverse group of theorists and experimentalists currently probing this structure-function problem of biomolecular condensates.
