Conference Brochure

Life Sciences 2019: Post-translational modifications and cell signalling is organized by The Physiological Society, Biochemical Society, British Pharmacological Society (BPS) and will be held from Mar 17 - 18, 2019 at De Vere East Midlands Conference Centre, Nottingham, England, United Kingdom.

Description:
Post-translational modifications (PTMs) of proteins play an important role in cellular function. Life Sciences 2019 will bring together researchers from across disciplines to discuss significant challenges and gain new perspectives on the role of PTMs in physiological function and disease processes.

The programme will include keynote lectures by award-winning researchers, and feature symposia from experts in the field on topics including PTMs in cardiac structure and function, regulation of neuronal synapses and stress responses, protein methylation and transglutaminase-mediated PTMs in health and disease, carbon monoxide modulation of ionic homeostasis, redox signalling, and non-enzymatic PTMs.

Each symposium will include two senior speakers and one ECR with two spaces for oral communications elevated from abstracts. Confirmed symposia at the event include:
• Protein methylation in health and disease
• Post-translational modifications of proteins related to stress-response
• Post-translational modifications in the regulation of neuronal synapses
• Carbon monoxide modulation of ionic homeostasis
• Transglutaminase-mediated post-translational modifications in human disease
• Features and regulation of non-enzymatic PTM
• Post-translational modification and implications for cardiac structure and function
• Redox signaling and protein phosphorylation

Topics:
• Post-translational modification of ion channels in the vasculature
• Post-translational modification and implications for cardiac function
• Epigenetic biochemistry, pharmacology, and pathophysiology
• Chronic pain; aberrant signaling and novel approaches to therapy
• Pathogen and viral-induced changes in cell signaling
• Redox biology and post-translational modifications
• Micro and nanodomains in cell signaling
• Ion channel posttranslational modifications: Structure, function, and targeting
• Post-translational modification of receptors and cell signaling
• New Analytical Approaches for PTM

Symposia:
There will be three parallel sessions during the programme, featuring symposia which include:
• Protein methylation in health and disease
• Post-translational modifications of proteins related to stress-response
• Post-translational modifications in the regulation of neuronal synapses
• Carbon monoxide modulation of ionic homeostasis
• Transglutaminase mediated post-translational modifications in human disease
• Features and regulation of non-enzymatic PTM
• Post-translational modification and implications for cardiac structure and function
• Redox signalling and protein phosphorylation

Each symposium will include two senior speakers and one ECR with two spaces for oral communications elevated from abstracts.

Practical Python: Resources for analysing biological data with Python
This introductory course is aimed at biochemists, physiologists, pharmacologists and those working across more than one discipline. This practical half-day session will explore the use of modern Python and associated resources for analysing and exploring biological data in the big data world. This course will be ideal for any beginner/intermediate user of Python, with or without prior experience in other programming languages.

During this session, participants will focus on how best to solve problems using this resource. The course will cover data handling and manipulation using the Pandas library, visualisation with the Matplotlib/Pyplot library and machine learning and statistics with the Scikit-learn library. Live demonstrations will be given, as well as an open session for questions. By the end of the course, participants should be able to install a Python IDE, read data in many formats, and apply some visualisation and analysis techniques.

Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
