Chromatin Signatures During Differentiation: Integrated Omics is organized by European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) and will be held from Sep 02 - 06, 2019 at EMBL Heidelberg, Heidelberg, Baden-Wurttemberg, Germany. Audience: This course is aimed at PhD students and post-doctoral researchers who seek to assess chromatin reorganization and/or are working in the field of neuronal development. Course Overview: Genomic and proteomic approaches have enabled breakthrough advances in the understanding of chromatin biology. This course attempts to integrate these omics approaches to understand the principle of chromatin operation and its biological relevance. Using a murine embryonic stem cells as a tractable model system, this course aims to analyze the composition and variation of chromatin components using antibody and small molecule tools, and the “epigenetic landscape” at key time points following the induction of cellular differentiation. During the 5 days of the course we will teach how murine stem cells can be differentiated into neuronal progenitors, how specific antibodies and small molecule drugs can be used to enrich for chromatin loci by ChIP- and Chem-seq approaches and how Mass Spectrometry and Next Generation Sequencing read-outs can be used to identify proteins and DNA associated with transcriptionally active chromatin. Combined with the experimental part, a series of lectures given by academic and industry experts in the field will expand the topic of chromatin players and the use of small molecule probes to understand chromatin biology. Modules/Resources: • Culture and neuronal differentiation of murine stem cells. • Chromatin sample preparation for genomic and proteomic analysis by means of antibodies and small molecules. • A meta-analysis of post-sequencing data. • Integration of MS proteomic data. Learning Outcomes: After this course participants should be able to: • Cultivate and differentiate neuronal murine stem cells • Prepare chromatin samples for genomic and proteomic analysis • Analysis genomic and proteomic data Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

EMBL Conference: Protein Synthesis and Translational Control is organized by European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) and will be held from Sep 04 - 07, 2019 at EMBL Advance Training Centre, Heidelberg, Baden-Wurttemberg, Germany. Conference Overview: Translational control is a major focus of attention that extends to many fields, including developmental biology, neurobiology, cell physiology, disease, synthetic and systems biology, among others. In addition to messenger RNA translation, the conference will feature advances in the fields of epitranscriptomics and non-coding RNAs that influence the translation process. Data-rich high-throughput technologies and structural advances will also be central, as they are pushing the field forward in manners that were unthinkable only few years ago, and are helping to create a “systems” view of translation. With the increasing appreciation of the integration between different steps of gene expression, the conference will explore the connections between translation, mRNA turnover, nonsense-mediated decay, RNA localisation, splicing, etc. Finally, many alternatives to the classical “one message makes one protein” concept are being unraveled which increase the potential for regulation. These alternatives will be featured, as well as the role of translational regulation in diseases as diverse as cancer, neurological disorders or infectious diseases. Session Topics: • Translation initiation • Ribosome, elongation, termination • Metabolism and disease • RNP complexes • Interconnections and turnover • Methods and systems approaches

EMBO | EMBL Symposium: Multiomics to Mechanisms - Challenges in Data Integration is organized by European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) and will be held from Sep 11 - 13, 2019 at EMBL Advance Training Centre, Heidelberg, Baden-Wurttemberg, Germany. Symposium Overview : The current speed at which high-throughput data are produced and the growing number of studies that use not only one but multiple omics technologies on the same samples offers tremendous opportunities for enhancing our molecular understanding of biological systems. One of the biggest challenges in the era of multiomics is the integration and interpretation of the diverse large-scale omics data in a way that provides biological insights. This requires the development of statistical, mathematical, and computational tools and equally important, experimental strategies to follow up on hypotheses generated by large-scale data. Together, these computational and experimental tools will enable us to address novel questions and identify biological mechanisms. This conference will provide a platform for bringing together leading researchers from computational biology, various omics fields and technology development to present their latest work and discuss applications, future ideas and the challenges for integrating large-scale biological data across different biological technologies and disciplines. A specific focus will be to discuss data integration of high-throughput technologies with molecular biology approaches. This conference aims to inspire novel ideas for data integration across the different omics fields and hence may sparkle exciting new future collaborations. Session Topics : • Novel high throughput technologies • Statistical tools for data integration • Omics and structural biology • Multiomics - focus genomics • Multiomics - focus metabolomics • Multiomics - focus proteomics Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
