Imaging Across Scales: Leveraging the Revolution in Resolution (D1) is organized by Keystone Symposia on Molecular and Cellular Biology and will be held from Apr 07 - 10, 2019 at Snowbird Resort, Snowbird, Utah, United States of America. Course Description : Cellular processes are orchestrated by a large number of biomolecules in both spatially and temporally coordinated manners within a small volume. To uncover the underlying organizational principles and their functional relevance, light and electron microscopy are indispensable tools. Light microscopy is exquisitely suited for mapping the spatial localization, temporal dynamics and activity profiles of biomolecules in individual cells to tissues. Advanced electron microscopy technologies support studies for determining the high-resolution structures of isolated biomolecules, as well as biomolecule structure and location within the context of an intact cell. Recent technical breakthroughs have supported the generation of crystal clear pictures and coordination to biological function of biomolecules from the molecular scale to tissue scale. Further technical advancements and biological discoveries call for seamless integration and correlation of different microscopy modalities, labeling methods and analysis/modeling platforms, as well as close communications between technique developers and biologists. Researchers from these very different disciplines, however, do not often sit in the same room and discuss new developments and opportunities for bridging across fields. Instead, their interactions have been limited to brief encounters at sessions of large society meetings and sporadic small symposiums. This meeting aims at bringing together investigators from these research communities in order to stimulate new ideas and forge new collaborations, which will help not only to extend the frontiers of microscopy, but also to bridge new technique developments and their potential applications to addressing the complexity of cell structure and function. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

Biomolecular Condensates: Phase Separated Organizers of Cellular Biochemistry (D5) is organized by Keystone Symposia on Molecular and Cellular Biology and will be held from Apr 10 - 13, 2019 at Snowbird Resort, Snowbird, Utah, United States of America. Course Description : Biomolecular condensates are cellular compartments that concentrate proteins and nucleic acids without an encapsulating membrane. They act in processes across the biological spectrum, from RNA metabolism to signaling and gene regulation. Macromolecular phase separation, akin to the separation of oil from water, has emerged over the past several years as a key organizer both of condensates, and of micron-scale cell organization in general. This meeting brings together for the first time at Keystone scientists studying biomolecular condensates and macromolecular phase separation from varied perspectives and across scales of length and time. Theory, biophysics, biochemistry, cell biology and developmental biology will be joined together to address central questions in the field—how is molecular specificity in condensates achieved, how are the material properties and spatial structure of condensates controlled, how do composition and physical properties lead to emergent functions, how does aberrant formation of condensates lead to diseases such as neurodegeneration and cancer? By bringing together leading scientists from diverse areas impacted by phase separation, we hope to clarify the current state of knowledge in this exciting new field and identify important future directions. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
