EMBO | EMBL Symposium

Brain genome: regulation, evolution and function

Overview

This conference will take place at EMBL Heidelberg, with the option to attend virtually. Proof of COVID-19 vaccination or recovery is required for on-site attendance. Please see EMBL’s COVID-19 safety policy for on-site events.

Registration is not yet open for this event. If you are interested in receiving more information please register your interest.

Symposium overview

This symposium will explore how the brain genome is regulated in order to support neural function and neural plasticity. We will consider various viewpoints on this question in the form of topical sessions in order to best cover the most exciting research being done at the moment in this area. We will explore how genome evolution has contributed to speciation, how genome architecture impacts neural plasticity, how transposable elements have shaped brain function, how epigenetic impacts gene expression and brain function across species, how the genome supports neural plasticity and how human genetic variation drives neural phenotypes. Overall, we will focus on the impact of genome regulation on unique features of the brain – its excitable nature, exquisite response to the environment and parallel processing capacity – with the longer-term vision of understanding how defective genome regulation can give rise to brain disease.

Warning

EMBL wishes to warn sponsors of EMBL conferences and courses of fraudulent schemes purporting to offer sponsorship opportunities on behalf of EMBL or affiliated with EMBL officials. One current scam campaign of which we are aware is conducted using the name ‘Judy Eastman’ (judy@gopcontact.a2hosted.com) and entails approaches to sponsors offering sponsorship opportunities on EMBL’s behalf. Please be kindly advised that all relevant communication regarding sponsorship of EMBL conferences, symposia and courses is handled by EMBL directly and is sent from an official EMBL account. EMBL does not work with any external providers on sponsorship acquisition.

Please also note that:

  • EMBL never provides attendee lists for purchase. Any offers of such are fraudulent.
  • EMBL will never call or email you to ask for your credit card details or to request a payment.
  • All payments are on invoice.

Suspicious communications purportedly from, for or on behalf of EMBL should be reported to EMBL at the following email address sponsoring@embl.de.

About

EMBO | EMBL Symposia promote scientific communication and collaboration in the European research area. They provide scientists with a platform to discuss and exchange ideas on forward-looking topics and new developments in the life sciences.

Topics emphasise upcoming developments and the interdisciplinary nature of related fields. Jointly funded and organised by EMBO and EMBL – and complementary to their respective courses, workshops, and conference programmes – the symposia promote scientific communication and collaboration.

All symposia are held in the EMBL Advanced Training Centre (ATC) in Heidelberg, Germany, or virtually.

Date: 25 - 28 Apr 2023
