EMBL | Wellcome Genome Campus Conference: Proteomics in Cell Biology and Disease Mechanisms is organized by European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) and will be held from Mar 07 - 09, 2019 at EMBL Advance Training Centre, Heidelberg, Baden-Wurttemberg, Germany. Conference Overview: Through the tremendous advances in the technology of mass spectrometry-based proteomics and its applications, the research has expanded to most areas of biology that deal with proteins. This conference will focus on the application of proteomics to cell biology and unraveling disease mechanisms by addressing conceptually novel ways to study long-standing questions in these fields. As most proteomics based conferences tend to focus on analytical chemistry, the selection of biological topics is usually uneven. Therefore, this unique EMBL|Wellcome Genome Campus Conference, which is being held at EMBL Heidelberg and will alternate yearly between Heidelberg and Hinxton, will focus on biology applications and build bridges to the disciplines where the technology’s promise is still not nearly fully realised. Session Topics: • Cell biology • Cell signaling • Omics in biology • Interaction proteomics • Chromatin proteomics • Genetics and disease

EMBO | EMBL Symposium: Synthetic Morphogenesis: From Gene Circuits to Tissue Architecture is organized by European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) and will be held from Mar 17 - 20, 2019 at EMBL Advance Training Centre, Heidelberg, Baden-Wurttemberg, Germany. Conference Overview: Morphogenesis, the generation of shape, is a topic of considerable interest in basic research with important implications in biomedicine. Across scales, from subcellular structures to multicellular systems shape is intimately linked with function. While traditional genetic approaches have allowed the identification of key components controlling individual morphogenetic processes, recent advances in synthetic biology are opening the possibility to engineer gene circuits, signal systems, and biomaterials to not only probe morphogenesis but also to re-construct it and direct it. Synthetic morphogenesis is a novel and exciting field that requires collaboration among traditionally distinct scientific communities, from developmental biologists, to chemists and material scientists. This symposium will bring together scientists from these different disciplines to discuss the extent to which cells/tissues/organs can be built de novo starting from isolated components. Session Topics: • Artificial cell/tissue • Organoids • Controlling tissues • Patterning and self-organisation • Mechanics • Gene expression dynamics/gene circuits
Mar 31 - Apr 03, 2019 | Heidelberg, Baden-Wurttemberg
EMBO | EMBL Symposium: Reconstructing the Human Past - Using Ancient and Modern Genomics is organized by European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) and will be held from Mar 31 - Apr 03, 2019 at EMBL Advance Training Centre, Heidelberg, Baden-Wurttemberg, Germany. Conference Description : The study of population genetic variation and the sequencing of ancient DNA represent promising new avenues for investigating human history and our evolutionary past. Population-scale sequencing projects investigating human diversity have provided us with more than a million genome wide datasets that allowed new insights into patterns of human variation and mobility, while others have obtained genome wide data from thousands of ancient human skeletons, allowing the investigation of human evolution in action and providing direct insights into population genetic dynamics in situ. Large-scale genetic variation data sets can now be integrated with genomics data from ancient remains and history records to provide novel insights into human history, cultural evolution and the genetic history of societies. Ancient DNA was furthermore used to reconstruct genomic variation of historic pathogens as well as oral and gut microbiomes in order to provide molecular fossils to study microbial evolution through time. This meeting will involve scientists from genomics, bioinformatics, microbiology, anthropology, archaeology and historians and may initiate future interactions in this exciting and timely new research area that has the potential to change the way we think about our human past and how we might study genetic variation in the future. Session Topics : • Genomic analyses of our closest living and extinct relatives. • Detecting patterns of natural selection. • Reconstructing the genetic history of human populations. • Combining genetics and historical evidence. • Genetic history of domestication. • Evolution of human pathogens and our microbiome.

EMBO|EMBL Symposium: Probing Neural Dynamics with Behavioural Genetics is organized by European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) and will be held from Apr 10 - 13, 2019 at EMBL Advance Training Centre, Heidelberg, Baden-Wurttemberg, Germany. Conference Description: One of the ultimate challenges in neuroscience is to link the dynamics of brain activity to behaviour. Cutting-edge experimental methodologies such as calcium imaging, multi-electrode recordings and optogenetics in freely-behaving animals of different genetic backgrounds have generated a wealth of rich data sets. In order to gain a better understanding, such studies need to be analysed through bioinformatics, computational analysis and theory. This meeting seeks to bring together experts on how the brain integrates information about sensory inputs and internal state into behavioural responses. This topic will be illustrated by studies in different model organisms and will range from sensory-motor to cognitive behaviour. It will foster interdisciplinary discussions between molecular, physiological, behavioural and computational neuroscientists. Session Topics: • Motor systems • Predictive coding and processing • Mathematical tools and statistical modelling • Learning and memory/navigation • Disorders • Sensory processing Additional Details will be posted as soon as they are available.

EMBO Workshop: Chromatin and Epigenetics is organized by European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) and will be held from May 01 - 04, 2019 at EMBL Advance Training Centre, Heidelberg, Baden-Wurttemberg, Germany. Conference Overview: Epigenetics refers to heritable change in gene expression that does not involve changes to the underlying DNA sequence. At least three systems including DNA methylation, histone modifications and non-coding RNAs (ncRNA) are considered to play fundamental roles in epigenetic regulation. Research over the last two decades has uncovered the role of epigenetics in a variety of human disorders and fatal diseases. Moreover influence of age, environment, lifestyle, and disease state on epigenetic states is being increasingly appreciated and actively studied. This conference provides an international forum for cutting edge research in chromatin and epigenetics. It provides the "focal hub” for people to present their research and exchange ideas in a European venue. Renowned speakers will cover the latest advances in the field, including chromatin regulation, chromatin dynamics, signalling to chromatin, nuclear architecture and dynamics, developmental epigenetics, epigenomics, epigenetics and human diseases, genome stability, environmental epigenetics, and transgenerational inheritance. Session Topics: • Epigenetic reprogramming • Developmental epigenetics • Different states of chromatin • Histone modifications, RNA and metabolism • Transcriptional and posttranscriptional regulation • Nuclear architecture • Chromatin and its variants in disease Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available
