GORDON RESEARCH CONFERENCE
Posttranslational Modification Networks: Regulation Mechanisms of Proteins and Signaling Pathways in Humans, Animals and Plants
Date : 13 - 18 Aug 2017
Venue : HKUST Jockey Club Institute for Advanced Study, Lo Ka Chung Building, Lee Shau Kee Campus, HKUST

Overview

The 2017 Gordon Conference on Posttranslational Modification Networks will present the latest development on approaches how the protein machinery and signaling pathways function in the context of various cellular systems. The genomic era has generated an enormous amount of information about the number of genes different organisms have and when they are expressed. However, we still know very little about how the encoded proteins function in the context of the molecular machines that underlay the essential cellular mechanisms such as transcription, translation or the primary metabolism. An understanding of these cellular systems is strongly dependent on the technologies to analyze the composition, behavior and regulation of proteins and protein complexes. The Gordon Conference 2017 on Posttranslational Networks will present advances in studying proteins and signaling pathways by using most modern developments in proteomics, bioinformatics, biochemistry and structural biology with a major focus on post-translational modifications (PTMs). The Conference will feature a wide range of topics, such as the detection and quantitative analysis of various PTMs, including protein phosphorylation, ubiquitination, glycosylation, alkylation or nitrosylation in protein networks of humans, animals and plants. The Conference will showcase how biological problems can be addressed by using genomics, proteomics, mass spectrometry, structural biology as well as computational and systems biology approaches. Invited speakers are at the forefront of their field and represent a variety of scientific disciplines, including animal, medical and plant sciences. Besides the programmed discussion and poster sessions, informal gatherings in the afternoons and evenings will enable scientists from different disciplines to brainstorm and develop cross-disciplinary collaborations. Early career scientists and students will be able to discuss their data with leaders in the field throughout the conference. In addition to presenting their work in dedicated slots throughout the program, the Gordon Research Seminar will provide opportunities for students and post-docs to present their work in poster format and exchange ideas with leaders in the field.
