EMBO | EMBL Symposia 2010
EMBL Advanced Training Centre, Heidelberg, Germany, 13 - 16 October 2010 The Non-Coding Genome
This symposium will provide an interdisciplinary discussion of the roles of non-coding RNAs with the aim of enhancing our understanding of gene regulation and function. Topics will include recent discoveries in the fields of prokaryotic and eukaryotic long and short non-coding RNAs. The functional roles of non-coding RNAs in a wide variety of cell processes will be discussed.
EMBL Advanced Training Centre, Heidelberg, Germany, 5 - 8 September 2010 Structure and Function of Neural Circuits
Understanding the complexity and functional composition of cellular and synaptic networks in the nervous system is a major challenge in neurobiology. The goal of this Symposium is to highlight recent work on the anatomical and functional analysis of behaviourally-relevant neural circuits in genetically tractable model systems, and to promote the exchange of ideas and methods in this exciting field of research.
EMBL Advanced Training Centre, Heidelberg, Germany, 20 - 23 June 2010 Human Variation: Cause and Consequence
The goal of this Symposium is to explore human genetic and phenotypic variability in the light of recent developments in genomics, genetics and molecular medicine. The topics covered will include the mechanisms of mutation, normal sequence variation from the DNA to the chromosomal level, functional polymorphism and disease genetics.
