EMBO Conference: From Functional Genomics to Systems Biology

08 Nov 2014 - 11 Nov 2014 - Heidelberg, Germany



Bookmark and Share


This conference brings together people from diverse disciplines to exchange ideas, promote cross-disciplinary collaborations and form a synthesis of appropriate systems-level approaches.

The meeting is therefore purposely broad to cover all aspects of genomics to systems biology, a unique combination that is highly appreciated by the participants. 

Over the past decade, this EMBO conference has played an important role in helping to shape the field and generate a community of scientists that come from very diverse disciplines, each with the common goal to understand the systems level properties of their system of interest.

Topics

o Transcription, chromatin and nucleosomes

o 3D structure, epigenetics

o Post-transcriptional regulation and non-coding RNA

o Proteomics, protein-protein interaction networks, metabolites

o Genetic interaction networks

o Single cell variation, biological noise

o Systems Genetics, genotype to phenotype

o Human genome variation

o Data integration, modelling and prediction

Scientists Find Evidence That Cancer Can Arise Changes
Researchers at Rockefeller University have found a mutation that affects the proteins that package DNA without changing the DNA itself can cause a rare form of cancer.
Modified Microalgae Converts Sunlight into Valuable Medicine
A special type of microalgae can soon produce valuable chemicals such as cancer treatment drugs and much more just by harnessing energy from the sun.
Gene That Lowers Heart Attack Risk Identified
Individuals with a rare twelve-letter deletion from a gene on chromosome 17 have significantly reduced non-HDL cholesterol levels and a 35% lower than average risk of heart disease.
Testing Non-Breast/Ovarian Cancer Genes
Researchers have found that expanding gene panel beyond breast/ovarian cancer genes in these patients does not add any clinical benefit. Instead, testing has produced more questions than answers.
Myeloid-Derived Suppressor Cells Play Role in Tumor Growth
Researchers at Baylor College of Medicine have reported a new mechanism that helps cancer cells engage myeloid-derived suppressor cells.
Cancer Cells Coordinate to Form Roving Clusters
Rice University scientists identify ‘smoking gun’ in metastasis of hybrid cells.
Genes For Nose Shape Found
Genes that drive the shape of human noses have been identified by a UCL-led study.
Transcription Factor Isoforms Implicated in Colon Diseases
UC Riverside study explains how distribution of two forms of a transcription factor in the colon influence risk of disease.
Drug Might Help Treat Sepsis
A DNA enzyme called Top1 plays a key role in turning on genes that cause inflammation in mouse and human cells in response to pathogens. A drug blocking this enzyme rescued mice from lethal inflammatory responses, suggesting a potential treatment for sepsis.
NIH Funds New Studies on Ethical, Legal and Social Impact of Genomic Information
Four new grants from the National Institutes of Health will support research on the ethical, legal and social questions raised by advances in genomics research and the increasing availability of genomic information.
