Gordon Research Conference — Carotenoids
08 Jan 2023 - 13 Jan 2023 • Ventura, CA, United States
Abstract:
The 2023 Carotenoid Gordon Research Conference (GRC) is a multidisciplinary meeting that addresses the biology of carotenoids and their derivatives apocarotenoids, in microorganisms, plants and mammals, including humans. Carotenoids are synthesized by all photosynthetic organisms and some non-photosynthetic microbes. Besides their vital role in photoprotection and light-harvesting, carotenoids are precursors of established and novel apocarotenoid hormones and regulatory metabolites involved in many aspects of plant's life, including development and intra-specific communications. Unable to synthesize carotenoids, mammals, including humans, obtain these pigments through the diet and convert them into retinoids (vitamin A and its derivatives). Indeed, biofortification of staple crops with carotenoids remains a major strategy to prevent the overwhelming public health issue of vitamin A deficiency (VAD). In addition, carotenoids are used by mammals as antioxidants and for pigmentation (as in macular pigment of the human fovea). Overall, dietary carotenoids and apocarotenoids provide a plethora of health benefits to humans, modulating vision, cognitive functions, embryonic development and growth, as well as preventing onset and development of chronic diseases.

Gordon Research Seminar — RNA Editing
18 Mar 2023 - 19 Mar 2023 • Ventura, CA, United States
Abstract:
The focus of the 2023 GRS is epitranscriptomics, RNA and DNA editing and modifications. These modifications are highly abundant and naturally occurring in nearly all organisms. The GRS on RNA editing brings together graduate student and post-docs to discuss fundamental mechanisms of these modifications and their aberrations in health and disease. The GRS will have two poster sessions and oral talks will be selected from submitted abstracts. The synergistic arrangement of the GRS and GRC will provide multiple opportunities for trainees to build professional networks and foster scientific collaborations.

Gordon Research Conference — RNA Editing
19 Mar 2023 - 24 Mar 2023 • Ventura, CA, United States
Abstract:
The 2023 meeting is subtitled: “RNA/DNA editing and epitranscriptomics across biological systems”. Modifications to the common nucleosides found in DNA and RNA have been known for many years. However, recent advances in analytical techniques for their detection, along with a deeper understanding of the broad impact these modifications have on fundamental biological processes, including human disease, have caused a renaissance in their study. Indeed, we now know that nucleic acid modifications are common in various naturally occurring nucleic acids and influence gene expression, protein synthesis, cognition, innate and adaptive immunity, autoimmune disease and cancer. This meeting will bring together a diverse group of scientists with varying expertise with the common goal of sharing ideas and approaches that can advance our understanding of the many facets of nucleic acid modifications.

Gordon Research Seminar — Chloroplast Biotechnology
25 Mar 2023 - 26 Mar 2023 • Ventura, CA, United States
Abstract:
The 2023 Gordon Research Seminar on Chloroplast Biotechnology will present novel research in all areas relevant to engineering chloroplasts to either improve existing functions or provide them with new ones. The technologies discussed will cover the entire range from subtle tweaks in plastid metabolism to complete redesign of the plastid genome, and will include all aspects of modifying organellar genomes, proteomes or metabolomes needed for applications in agriculture, industrial biotechnology or the pharmaceutical sector. Target products to be covered include, for example, biopharmaceuticals (vaccines and therapeutic proteins), industrial enzymes, green chemicals and next-generation biofuels.

SIVB — 2023 IN VITRO BIOLOGY MEETING
10 Jun 2023 - 14 Jun 2023 • Norfolk, VA, United States
Organizer:
Society for In Vitro Biology
Abstract:
The Society for In Vitro Biology (SIVB) is heading to Norfolk, Virginia for the 2023 SIVB Annual Meeting for the first time ever and you can be part of it! Founded nearly 80 years ago as the Tissue Culture Association, the SIVB is fostering the exchange of knowledge of in vitro biology of cells, tissues, and organs from both the plant and animal kingdoms, including humans. The SIVB furthers biotechnology research to understand biology at the cellular and developmental level, and promotes, expands and supports the scientific knowledge base for the benefit of society as a whole. The scientific program will provide both state-of-the-art scientific research and core fundamentals presented by speakers you won’t want to miss. This year’s plenary topics include: Microbiomes, Product Development, Spatial Biology, Biotechnology for Sustainability, and Diversity in Science.
