AAA+ Proteins: From Atomic Structures to Organisms (A5) is organized by Keystone Symposia on Molecular and Cellular Biology and will be held from Jan 26 - 29, 2020 at Granlibakken Tahoe, Tahoe City, California, United States of America. Description AAA+ proteins are ATPases Associated with Diverse Cellular Activities. They form a large superfamily and have been found to carry out a very diverse range of functions including DNA replication, chromatin remodeling, rRNA processing, and membrane fusion. In recent years, there has been substantial progress in identifying the structure and cellular function of a large number of AAA+ proteins. However, little is known of the unique features underlying this mechano-chemical coupling mechanism used to apply forces to various substrates. There is also a lack of understanding for many AAA+ proteins regarding how substrates are recognized, regulation of their activities in vivo, and how their functions are coordinated with other competing and overlapping reactions. Recent findings demonstrate the importance of AAA+ proteins in the biology of cancer and neurodegeneration and as virulence factors in pathogenic microorganisms. However, we know very little of the biochemical pathways leading to diseases arising from mutations in these proteins. The conference will bring together an interdisciplinary group of scientists interested in understanding the structure, function, and disease aspects of these proteins. The conference comes at an opportune time of great developments in structural biology, especially cryoEM, and cell biology. We aim to provide a very interactive and collegial atmosphere to discuss the latest advances in this important field. In addition to having invited speakers, we will also provide the opportunity to many attendees to give an oral presentation about their research. Poster sessions will also be held for all attendees. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

The Global Virome in Health and Disease (C1) is organized by Keystone Symposia on Molecular and Cellular Biology and will be held from Mar 01 - 04, 2020 at Granlibakken Tahoe, Tahoe City, California, United States of America. Description: Viruses are the most abundant biological entities on earth, but only recently has it been possible to define the full virome in humans, animals, plants and global environments. Virome signatures have been associated with diverse conditions such as HIV/AIDS, inflammatory bowel disease, malnutrition, graft versus host disease, organ transplantation, and type 1 diabetes, providing novel insights into mechanisms of pathogenesis. Recently a variety of new beneficial roles of the virome have also been identified. Despite these advances, the vast majority of the virome remains undiscovered, and thus many associations with health and disease remain to be identified. The goals of this meeting are to examine the state-of-the art in virome studies, including efforts to define the virome, establish linkages with health and disease, understand interactions between viral and bacterial components of the microbiome, exploit new model systems, and identify mechanisms of immune control. This would be the first conference dedicated solely to the virome, bringing together experts in eukaryotic virology, phage biology, genomics, informatics, public health, model organisms, and immunology. This meeting will bridge the distinct research communities that study bacterial and eukaryotic viruses and unify host-based and environmental research frameworks to allow potent new synergies. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
