EMBO | EMBL Symposia 2015
EMBL Heidelberg, Germany, 12 - 14 November 2015 Biological Oscillators: Design, Mechanism, Function
This symposium aims to establish a cross-disciplinary forum discussing oscillatory and pulsatile phenomena that are abundant in nature. Accordingly, mixed sessions on mechanisms, functions, synchronization, modelling and synthetic oscillators will each include presentations on a range of oscillators from different fields. As such, the meeting is designed to provide an interactive platform for scientists that share a common interest in dynamics and oscillations but usually do not meet within a concise conference setting.
EMBL Heidelberg, Germany, 18 - 21 October 2015 The Non-Coding Genome
This symposium will explore the diverse, dynamic and multifaceted roles of RNA across a spectrum of cellular processes. It will provide an interdisciplinary discussion of the roles of non-coding RNAs in both prokaryotes and eukaryotes, with the aim of enhancing our understanding of gene regulation and function.
EMBL Heidelberg, Germany, 11 - 14 October 2015 New Approaches and Concepts in Microbiology
This meeting aims to bridge the gap between traditional microbiology and systems approaches-novel technologies, by exposing microbiologists to new ways of addressing their hypotheses, and allowing systems or technology experts to get a feeling of the burning questions in the field and/or find collaborators for follow-up work or for applying their technology.
EMBL Heidelberg, Germany, 6 - 10 October 2015 Seeing is Believing - Imaging the Processes of Life
"Seeing is Believing" presents the most exciting new imaging technologies and shows how they can answer important biological questions. With the Symposium “Seeing is Believing – Imaging the Processes of Life” we aim to bring together the leading developers of imaging methods with cutting edge applications that illustrate how imaging can answer biological questions. We will place emphasis on methods that are able to capture the dynamics of life and aim to span the whole range from molecular resolution to imaging of whole organisms.
EMBL Heidelberg, Germany, 16 - 19 September 2015 The Mobile Genome: Genetic and Physiological Impacts of Transposable Elements
The meeting will stimulate interdisciplinary discussions on various key topics including the impact of mobile DNA on genome structure and evolution, novel advances in the mechanism of transposition and transposon defense as well as the developmental and physiological roles of transposition.
EMBL Heidelberg, Germany, 21 - 23 June 2015 Enabling Technologies for Eukaryotic Synthetic Biology
The main goal of this meeting is to bring together world-leading experts in all aspects of synthetic biology – including genome editing, systems modelling, synthetic circuits, systems biology and metabolic engineering. The symposium will provide a platform for interdisciplinary discussions on novel enabling technologies for synthetic biology in Eukaryotic cells and facilitate exchange of ideas and new multi-disciplinary collaborations.
EMBL Heidelberg, Germany, 14 - 17 June 2015 Mechanisms of Neurodegeneration
This meeting aims to bring together basic and clinical research scientists working on different forms of neurodegeneration with their counterparts from the biotechnology and pharma industry to apply recent insights gained in the mechanisms of neurodegenerative diseases and the development of drug therapies. This symposium will bridge the gap between basic research and medical research in an area that urgentlyrequires therapeutic progress.
EMBL Heidelberg, Germany, 15 - 18 April 2015 Cellular Heterogeneity: Role of Variability and Noise in Biological Decision-Making
The purpose of this symposium is to bring together researchers across different disciplines with a shared interest in studying the origins and consequences of variability in biological systems, ranging from stochastic molecular fluctuations to emerging cell population-level phenomena.
EMBL Heidelberg, Germany, 29 - 31 March 2015 Frontiers in Stem Cells & Cancer
This conference aims to establish an interactive forum for stem cell- and molecular biologists that study pluripotency and its impact on cancer. Major emphases are cancer growth- and stem cell self-renewal mechanisms, their regulation by epigenetic means and non-coding RNAs. As such, the meeting is designed to connect scientists working in some of the most-intensely studied areas of research, not usually interacting in a concise conference setting.
