  • FEBS 2018 Advanced Course

    23 - 25 May 2018

    Bologna, Italy

    FEBS 2018 Advanced Course **Application deadline: _15 April 2018_** **Deadline dor applying to FEBS Youth Travel Funds (YTF): _28 February 2018_** The workshop intends to present the state-of-fhe-art of the computational tools for interpreting at the molecular level the effects that genome variations induce in the cell system, contributing to fill the knowledge gap between genotype and phenotype. NGS techniques allow detection of the differences in genetic sequences and in gene expression that can be associated to different phenotypes, and statistical methods can estimate a significance level for each association. However, the exploitation of genetic association data requires elucidation of how variations affect the structure of macromolecules and their interaction patterns and how biological processes and pathways are hampered. Proteins, their stability and their relationships in interactomes will be the central topic. Furthermore, a particular regard will be given to the regulation at the transcriptional and translational levels, as derived from epigenomic and ribosome profiling data. Computational tools are absolutely necessary to perform the analysis of massive amounts of biomedical data and modern techniques for database integration, non parametric statistics, machine-learning and in particular deep-learning approaches, can have a huge impact in the field. The exploitation of data in the applicative domains, and in particular in translational and stratified medicine, strongly rely on the availability of computational methods able to extract, elaborate and generalise biologically relevant information The workshop aims at presenting the state-of-the-art of computational methods for genome interpretation and collects expert scientists from both experimental biomedicine and computational biology. The mixing of competences is fundamental for generating significant advancements, and the proposed workshop . The format of the workshop allows extensive interaction among students and lecturers, and offers to young researchers the possibility of presenting their work at poster sessions and with short selected talks. 2018-05-23 09:00:00 UTC 2018-05-25 18:00:00 UTC Pier Luigi Martelli (University of Bologna), Mauno Vihinen (Lund University) Dipartimento di Storia Culture Civiltà - Università di Bologna, 2, Piazza San Giovanni in Monte, Bologna, Italy Dipartimento di Storia Culture Civiltà - Università di Bologna, 2, Piazza San Giovanni in Monte Bologna Città Metropolitana di Bologna Italy 40124 University of Bologna, Italy Federation of European Societies of Biochemistry (FEBS) postdoctoral researchersPhD Students 80 workshops_and_courses first_come_first_served Computational BiologyGenotype-Phenotype relationshipHuman genetic variationProtein stabilityProtein functionNGS data analysis
  • Regulatory Oxylipins

    1 - 4 April 2019

    Gent, Belgium

    Elixir node event
    Regulatory Oxylipins 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!
