EMBO Conference Series: Protein Synthesis and Translational Control

08 Sep 2013 - 12 Sep 2013 - EMBL Heidelberg, Germany



Bookmark and Share


"Translational Control" has become a major focus of attention and research activity in the field of gene regulation. Developmental biology and neurobiology are but two prominent examples that have added to the interest in translational control even before the arrival of small non-coding RNAs. MicroRNAs in particular now define a new frontier in gene expression, and will be a central topic to be discussed within the conference series.

With the increasing appreciation for the integration between different steps in the gene expression pathway, the conference series will also explore the latest work on the interfaces between translational control and mRNA turnover, RNA localization and splicing/nonsense-mediated decay.

A major ambition of this conference is to continue to promote integration and communication between experts in the field of translation with those from a scientifically intertwined field where "meeting traditions" of the past have somewhat diverged: the structure and function of the ribosome.

Finally, our understanding of the biochemistry and genetics of translation initiation, elongation and termination is progressing rapidly, and the latest findings regarding these processes will feature prominently within this series, laying the groundwork for understanding regulation and the numerous biological contexts for which it is critical.
