EMBO Practical Course on Integrative Modelling of Biomolecular Interactions, Barcelona, Spain

Proteins and their intricate network of interactions are the mainstay of any cellular process. Dissecting these networks at atomic detail is invaluable, as this paves the route to a mechanistic understanding of biological function and provides the first essential step toward the development of new drugs. Because of the challenges associated with experimental techniques, structural biologists have to resort more and more these days to complementary computational methods.

The EMBO Practical Course will present docking-based computational methods and related bioinformatics approaches, aiming at predicting how proteins interact with other biomolecules or ligands. Lectures will provide the theoretical background on state-of-the-art algorithms for sampling and scoring docking models, describe the use of low- and high-resolution information, and conservation- and coevolution-based interfaces prediction methods. Further, protein-peptide and protein-ligand interaction, as well as the young field of genome structure determination from sequencing information will also be covered to broaden the scope of the course beyond traditional protein-protein interactions.

Roughly half of the EMBO Practical Course will consist of practical sessions, during which the students will run computations on interesting biological problems. Finally, to encourage interaction between instructors and students and stimulate discussions, students will be prompted to present their own research and problems during dedicated sessions.

Second Information Universe Conference - IU, Groningen, The Netherlands

The key topic of the IU conference series is: "What is the role of information in the Universe and its description?" In an epoch where scientists need to handle Big Data and simulations, find highly organized systems in nature and grapple with the role of information in physics and other sciences, this appears to be one of the more fundamental questions that needs to be answered in order to understand the world around us. The Information Universe conference intends to unite various approaches, addressing the fundamental role of information both in nature ("in vivo") and in data analysis, theory and computer modelling ("in vitro").

The conference will approach the key role of information from the point of view of several disciplines: e.g. cosmology, physics, mathematics, life sciences, computer science - including quantum computing - and neuroscience. The deeper role of information is formulated in different ways by these various disciplines, leading to a multitude of fundamental questions.

Research Data Alliance's 12th Plenary Meeting, Gaborone, Botswana

RDA encourages members to submit session proposals for the following categories:

  • Working and/or Interest Group sessions: These sessions provide existing RDA groups the opportunity for discussion, sharing experiences and best practices, and laying down concrete action plans; although members are free to design the meeting format, a working meeting structure is strongly encouraged.
  • Joint meetings: These are meetings that combine multiple Working and/or Interest Groups to explore potential synergies, share findings and coordinate efforts.
  • Birds of a Feather (BoF) sessions: If there is something you wish to see discussed but is not currently covered in an Working or Interest Group, you are encouraged to submit an application for a BoF session. Aimed at exploring new future Working or Interest Group topics, BoFs can help you identify an audience, build support and start the work on your Case Statement or Charter.

Deadline for session proposals' submission is June 29, 2018.
