    Regulatory Oxylipins https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/regulatory-oxylipins-661da9dc-2159-4a34-8809-7851dfbe0b8a Oxylipins, from plants and other organisms, form a constantly growing group of signalling molecules that comprise oxygenated fatty acids and their metabolites. The most renowned regulatory oxylipins are undoubtedly the jasmonates, which, following their discovery in the 1960s, became recognized as regulators of defence, floral organ development and fertility, as growth inhibitors and modulators of senescence, and as elicitors of specialized metabolism in numerous plant species. As such, the jasmonates currently belong to an elite group of heavily investigated phytohormones. Over the last decade, the understanding of biosynthesis, metabolism, and action of regulatory oxylipins has greatly advanced. The ROXY2019 meeting wishes to bring together the international community and leading researchers in the field. Thereby it aims to provide a timely and exciting forum to present and discuss the recent advances and expertise on the study of these molecules that are so crucial for plant growth, development, metabolism, and interaction with the environment. There will be seven plenary sessions that, through combining lectures from invited speakers and short talks on selected abstracts and posters, will highlight the various aspects involved in Regulatory Oxylipin research. These sessions cover the following major themes: Regulatory oxylipins in emerging model systems and non-plant systems, Biochemistry and structural biology, Control of growth and defence, Control of Metabolism, Reproduction, Jasmonate signalling mechanisms and Long-distance signalling, Ecology. We look forward to your contributions to make this an exciting conference. See you in Gent!

  • International Conference on Polyploidy

    11 - 14 June 2019

    Gent, Belgium

    Elixir node event
    International Conference on Polyploidy https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/international-conference-on-polyploidy The International Conference on Polyploidy will present cutting edge research into the importance of polyploidy and whole genome duplication for genetics, evolution and ecology. For the 2019 meeting, which will take place at the beautiful city of Ghent, we are trying to put together an exciting program focusing on many different aspects of polyploidy, such as the short- and long-term ecological and evolutionary consequence of polyploidy for plant and animal systems, but also polyploidy in somatic cells and clonal populations will be discussed. The International Conference on Polyploidy will present a unique opportunity to meet and discuss with colleagues, get updated on the newest developments and insights into recent and ancient polyploidy and whole genome duplication, and will provide unique possibilities to network and discuss collaborations. We are delighted to announce that Dr. Ilia Leitch (Kew Gardens) has agreed to deliver the plenary lecture on Tuesday afternoon, June 11th, opening the meeting.

  • Genome Engineering and Synthetic Biology (4th edition)

    23 - 24 September 2021

    Gent, Belgium

    Elixir node event
    Genome Engineering and Synthetic Biology (4th edition) https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/genome-engineering-and-synthetic-biology-4th-edition Genome Engineering and Synthetic Biology are revolutionizing Life Sciences. Driven by advances in the CRISPR-toolbox for rapid, cheap, multiplex modification of genomes and breakthroughs in DNA synthesis technologies, the pace of progress enabled by these tools in the last years has been breathtaking. The first three editions (September 2013, January 2016, January 2018) were a roaring success and we are pleased to announce the 4th edition of GESB in beautiful Ghent in September, 2020. Travel Grants We offer 5 travel grants to international attendees, which will reimburse travel costs up to 400 Euros. Are you interested in attending GESB20 and want to have a chance on a travel grant? Submit your motivation below by clicking on the 'Apply for a grant' button before 24 June 2021. The organizing committee will notify you of your travel grant acceptance by the end of June. No registration is needed before submitting a travel grant proposal. When you’re awarded with a travel grant you will receive a practical email containing the next steps. Note that being awarded a travel grant does not mean being registered for the conference.
