Spotlight events

Evolutionary Systems Biology

Evolutionary Systems Biology

12-14 February 2020: The conference will explore the evolution of biological systems at different levels: from genes and molecules to organism development and physiology. Particular emphasis will be placed on understanding evolution through mechanistic biology. We will explore recent advances in experimental and theoretical approaches to study how genetic and non-genetic changes fuel and constrain evolution.

Deadlines: Registration 14 January 2020

Optimmunize: Improving the beneficial effects of vaccines

Optimmunize: Improving the beneficial effects of vaccines

19 – 21 February 2020: The conference will discuss and explore various aspects of the non-specific effects of vaccines, including their impact on neonates and infants, how generalisable and durable these effects are, the implications for geriatric and veterinary medicine, and why non-specific effects should differ between sexes and across the lifespan.

Deadline: Registration 21 January

Genomics of Rare Diseases

Genomics of Rare Diseases

25-27 March: This year’s meeting will focus on large-scale whole genome sequencing studies that impact on our understanding of rare diseases. There will also be the opportunity for bioinformaticians working in this area to showcase the innovative tools that they have developed. We will also include sessions exploring regulatory regions beyond the coding regions of the genome, and explore the new therapeutic approaches to rare diseases.

Deadlines: Registration 25 February
