Higher-Order Chromatin Architecture in Time and Space (X3) is organized by Keystone Symposia on Molecular and Cellular Biology and will be held from Mar 15 - 19, 2020 at Whistler Conference Centre, Whistler, British Columbia, Canada. Description Mammalian genomes are folded in a hierarchy of compartments, topologically associating domains (TADs), subTADs, and looping interactions. As genome-wide chromatin architecture maps become widely available, the field is shifting focus from mapping to understanding the dynamics of such structures in development, the cell cycle, and on short time scales in single cells. A critical emerging goal will be to unravel the cause and effect relationship between genome folding and functions such as transcription, replication, recombination, and stability/maintenance. There is also a great need to evaluate the organizing principles governing chromatin topology across many biological conditions and genetic perturbations. Moreover, the role for 3D genome misfolding in the onset and progression of a wide range of human disease states remains an area of high interest across multiple disciplines and organ systems. The conference program will also include workshops on: • Leading computational methods to identify biologically relevant patterns in Hi-C data, • New genome mapping and imaging technologies, and • New data resources available through the 4D Nucleome consortium. Finally, we will conclude with a session devoted to novel tools for imaging and engineering the 3D genome. Overall, the 2020 Keystone meeting is meant to highlight new frontiers across disciplines in tackling the dynamics and functional roles of the 3D genome in cellular functions across time and space in development and disease. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

Skirting Mendel: Non-Classical Mechanisms of Phenotypic Variation, Inheritance and Disease (X4) is organized by Keystone Symposia on Molecular and Cellular Biology and will be held from Mar 15 - 19, 2020 at Whistler Conference Centre, Whistler, British Columbia, Canada. Description The meeting aims to highlight the exciting recent developments on our understanding of mechanisms that control non-genetic phenotypic variation. Referred to also as ‘plasticity’, ‘incomplete penetrance’ or ‘noise’, these processes can impose dramatic shifts upon simple and complex genetic traits. Popularized examples include inter- / trans-generational reprogramming paradigms, twin disease discordance, polyphenism in insects (eg. queen and worker bee), evolutionary capacitance, as well as bi-stability in transcriptional and biological networks. The impact of phenotypic plasticity extends from transcriptional control to population dynamics, and evolution. Through impacts on patient responsiveness and variable disease susceptibility, they provide the foundation of a modern personalized medicine. We will bring together geneticists, chromatin biologists, (epi)genomicists, developmental biologists, mathematicians, physiologists and a growing community of clinical scientists, all interested in the molecular mechanisms that establish, buffer and control phenotypic variation. This meeting aims for the first time to bring these diverse disciplines together and catalyze understanding of trait and disease heterogeneity. Key sessions will include: Stochasticity, multi-stable systems and canalization; Inter -/ trans-generational mechanisms; Repeats and the non-coding genome; the genetics of epigenetics; as well as germline and early embryo chromatin dynamics. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

Advances in Cancer Immunotherapy (C4) is organized by Keystone Symposia on Molecular and Cellular Biology and will be held from Mar 22 - 26, 2020 at Fairmont Chateau Whistler, Whistler, British Columbia, Canada. Description Significance Cancer immunotherapy by blocking immune inhibitory checkpoints or engineering T cells for adoptive cell transfer is providing an unprecedented level of long-term antitumor activity in patients with several metastatic cancers. However the majority of patients with advanced cancers still do not experience sustained clinical benefit from immunotherapy. Understanding the mechanistic basis of response and resistance to these therapies and how therapeutic approaches could best be combined will be essential to continue progress. The largest human experiment is currently being conducted with over 900 agents and combinations. Understanding the results to date with what is working and what is not will be important to refine our understanding of immunity in patients with cancer. • What is the rationale for the multiple IO combinations being tested in the clinic? • How do cancers adapt and resist T cell attack? • New approaches to genetically engineer a cancer-fighting immune system. • Can we understand the tumor microenviroment to result in new avenues to treat cancer? • How do T cells react to antigen, gain effector mechanisms and gain memory to fight cancer long term? • Molecular understanding of ‘hot’ and ‘cold’ tumors. • Mechanisms to convert cold tumors to immune responsive tumors. • How to optimally select combination partners for cancer immunotherapies. • Assessment of what has worked and worked and what has not worked in patients. Innovation • Analyses of patient-derived samples provides information on adaptive an genetic resistance mechanisms to immunotherapy. • New methodologies result in higher resolution and multiparametic analyses of how the immune system attacks cancer. • Integration of high throughput data will provide a more comprehensive understanding of cancer and the immune system. • Novel chimeric receptors and gene editing approaches can better engineer T cells against cancer. • Knowledge on what limits checkpoint blockade immunotherapy provides means to combine with other therapies. • Knowledge of current state of outcomes to various agents and combinations in the clinic.

Mitochondrial Biochemistry in Health and Disease (Z1) is organized by Keystone Symposia on Molecular and Cellular Biology and will be held from May 17 - 21, 2020 at Whistler Conference Centre, Whistler, British Columbia, Canada. Description Mitochondria are iconic structures in cell biology and have long been appreciated as centerpieces of bioenergetics. However, many features of these organelles remain remarkably obscure, ranging from the basic functions of orphan mitochondrial proteins to the nature of acute regulation of mitochondrial activities and the mechanisms that these organelles use to communicate with the rest of the cell. Our weak grasp on these and other core features of mitochondria underlie our poor ability to address mitochondrial dysfunction therapeutically. This meeting will bring together world leaders in diverse areas of mitochondrial biology to discuss new tools and emerging themes in the field, including the use of multi-layered omics analyses and systems biology to functionalize new disease-related proteins, the use of metabolomics and ribosome profiling methods to elucidate the orchestration of the many distinct events required for mitochondrial biogenesis, and the application of novel imaging and labeling approaches to reveal the nature of mitochondrial dynamics and inter-organellar contacts. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
