FEBS3+ Meeting: 86th Harden Conference – Machines on Genes, Alicante (ES) – Deadline for earlybird registration is TOMORROW 22.03.2022

About the meeting:

From bacteria to eukaryotes, cells have evolved a remarkable battery of enzymes to deal with the mechanical and topological challenges presented by nucleic acid production, processing and maintenance. A clear view of the biology of the genetic material requires a molecular understanding of how these enzymes function. Such an understanding will enhance our ability to manipulate genome structure and gene expression. The theme of this meeting revolves around the mechanisms of these enzymes, with particular emphasis on research that integrates structural, biochemical, biophysical and computational approaches. With recent technological advances in imaging (i.e., single-molecule and cryo-electron microscopies), we expect to witness a flourish of key biological systems to be characterised with unprecedented detail.

This meeting will cover many of the molecular mechanisms by which large macromolecular machines carry out a diverse range of nucleic acid processes including DNA replication and repair, gene transcription and regulation, RNA processing and splicing, translation, nucleic acids structures and chromatin structure and epigenetic mechanisms. The meeting will also explore new quantitative techniques as well as theoretical approaches.

Invited speakers include:
–  Keynote speaker – John Diffley, The Francis Crick Institute (UK)
–  Keynote speaker – Rachel Green, Johns Hopkins University (USA)
–  Biochemical Society’s 2021 International Award winner – Brandt Eichman, Vandberbilt University (USA)

Oral communication slots are available at this meeting. All attendees, particularly researchers in the early stages of their career, are invited to submit a poster abstract for consideration as an oral communication. You can submit your abstract here.

Please note that Harden Conferences are ‘fully residential only’ retreat-style conferences to encourage networking and discussion outside of the lectures. As such, all registration fees include onsite accommodation and it is not possible to offer a registration fee without accommodation.

There are a variety of Biochemical Society, NVBMB and SEBBM bursaries available for this meeting. Click here to find out more.
