The vifabio Calendar of Conferences and Congresses provides an overview of the most important upcoming events in biology, in chronological order. Only larger conferences and congresses of several days' duration are considered. Please take advantage of the options on the right-hand side to refine the list of events.
The NCBI Entrez Genome Project database is intended to be a searchable collection of complete and incomplete large-scale sequencing, assembly, annotation, and mapping projects for cellular organisms. The database is organized into organism-specific overviews that function as portals from which all projects in the database pertaining to that organism can be browsed and retrieved. ...

SINEBase is a database of SINEs and a toolset for their identification and analysis.Short interspersed elements (SINEs) are repetitive DNA sequences invading the genomes of eukaryotes. They can amount to more than 10% of the genome in some species but are missing from other ones. While these genomic parasites can be deleterious to the cell, the long-term being in the genome has made SINEs a valuable factor of genetic variation providing regulatory elements for gene expression, alternative splice sites, polyadenylation signals, and even functional RNA genes. ...

Synthetic biology has gained much attention since Craig Venter and his team in 2010 made the historic announcement of the creation of first fully functioning, reproducing cell controlled by synthetic DNA. The 2013 NCMLS New Frontiers symposium - a joint venture between the Radboud University Medical & Science faculties - will feature international keynote speakers as well as NCMLS top researchers, who will provide high-quality presentations on current achievements and challenges ahead in our quest to understanding the chemistry and biology of life. ...

There has been tremendous progress in the past few years regarding our understanding of DNA replication in eukaryotes, both yeast and mammals. Many important questions in the field are poised to be answered within the next decade. These include understanding DNA replication at the biochemical and three-dimensional protein structure levels. In addition, studies using high throughput technologies at the cellular and organismal levels are poised to answer how accurate replication of the genome is ensured by controlling origin firing in space and time. Several human diseases, including cancer, have already been linked to DNA replication stress, a term that refers to perturbations in DNA replication. Therefore, a better understanding of how cells respond to this will help us understand disease development and responses to therapy. By bringing together experts in the basic biology of DNA replication and DNA replication stress, this symposium aims to fuel further progress in these important fields. ...
