Beyond a Million Genomes: From Discovery to Precision Health (A4) is organized by Keystone Symposia on Molecular and Cellular Biology and will be held from Jan 21 - 25, 2020 at Beaver Run Resort & Conference Center, Breckenridge, Colorado, United States of America. Description With advances and decreasing costs of high-throughput genotyping and DNA sequencing technologies, we now know more about the human genome than that of any other species. Sequence variation, both common and rare, contribute to great inter-individual phenotypic variation within it. A deeper understanding of the genetic basis of human health and disease has provided insights into biology and huge opportunities for the development and implementation of more targeted therapies and preventive strategies, which is the goal of precision health. This Keystone Symposium will focus on rapidly advancing and emerging areas of precision health with each session emphasizing the path from discovery to clinical implementation. The Symposium will begin with the state of our current knowledge of the allelic architecture of human disease and how these understandings are being translated into clinical practice. Sessions will cover discovery and translational advances from Mendelian diseases and rare human gene knock-outs to common multifactorial diseases in large genomic databases linked to electronic health record data, and the challenges and opportunities of big data analysis and integration. Other topics will include translating cancer genomics to clinical practice, workshops on clinical interpretation of germline and somatic mutations, pharmacogenomics, and the role of human genomics for novel therapeutic development. Finally, a session will look beyond human sequence variation to consider the role of epigenomics, the microbiome, and environment and lifestyle in precision health. While broad-based, a unifying theme of this Symposium is to bridge basic human genomic discovery to clinical implementation with the intention of attracting and engaging a multidisciplinary audience for thoughtful and open discussion to impact Precision Health.

Synthetic Biology: At the Crossroads of Genetic Engineering and Human Therapeutics (C5) is organized by Keystone Symposia on Molecular and Cellular Biology and will be held from Mar 29 - Apr 01, 2020 at Beaver Run Resort & Conference Center, Breckenridge, Colorado, United States of America. Description Synthetic Biology tools and principles have matured tremendously over the last decade and have reached extraordinary levels of sophistication, both in eukaryotic and prokaryotic systems. Synthetic Biology as a therapeutic modality is starting to enter multiple clinical studies and has the potential to have a significant impact on medicine across a wide range of diseases (metabolic, immune-mediated, cancer, neurology). This Keystone conference will delve into the field of synthetic biology with a special emphasis on its applications to medicine. While there are conferences that capture synthetic biology in a few talks among many other topics, or highly focused technology-driven conferences that deal with synthetic biology in itself, there is a paucity of conferences focused on synthetic biology as drugs to treat disease. The expanding number of biotechnology companies and emerging clinical studies with synthetic biology at their cores make this proposed conference highly relevant and should be of interest to a wide audience of scientists both from academia and industry. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
