USDA-sponsored plenary lecture at ECB2016:
"Predictive Phenomics of Plants"

The opening plenary lecture for the Krakow Congress will be given by Professor Patrick Schnable, who is the Director of the Plant Sciences Institute and the Centre for Plant Genomics at Iowa State University. The EFB gratefully acknowledges sponsorship of the lecture by the US Department of Agriculture. He is also a Chang Jiang Scholar Professor at China Agriculture University in Beijing. His interdisciplinary expertise is in the areas of genetics, molecular biology, genomics, and bioinformatics, especially of the maize genome. He collaborates with researchers in diverse fields, including agricultural and computer engineering, plant breeding and statistics.

6th Conference on Yeast and Filamentous Fungi Physiology and Biotechnology - PYFF6

The Microbial Physiology Section is co-organising the 6th Conference on Yeast and Filamentous Fungi Physiology and Biotechnology (PYFF6), from 7 to 9 September, 2016; Osaka -Japan.

PYFF6 is focused on the modern genome-wide approaches that are unveiling fascinating aspects of the physiology of yeasts and filamentous fungi, boosting the understanding of these systems, envisaging their application in biotechnology or the control of their pathogenic activity. Young researchers are specifically encouraged to participate, to present their data and to exchange ideas during the conference. With the support of the Scientific Committee composed of renowned experts in the Physiology of Yeasts and Filamentous Fungi and of the highly active international community working in the field, the Organizing Committee is committed to organize a successful and productive conference that contributes to reinforce or to initiate collaborative links between researchers in academia, industry, and the clinic, and show the vitality of their research and what’s new in area of physiological genomics of yeasts and filamentous fungi and on how it can be applied.

Royal Society of Biology 2016 fundraising event

The inventor of DNA fingerprinting tells his story at this special fundraising event

A unique opportunity to hear Professor Sir Alec Jeffreys FRS Hon FRSB give a first-hand account of how he developed DNA fingerprinting after a "Eureka moment" in his Leicestershire lab back in 1984. This very special fundraising event at the Science Museum's IMAX theatre, will give guests the inside story on Sir Alec's famous discovery, and how it led to revolutionary advancements in forensic science worldwide, including well-known stories of crimes being solved around the world, and where it has led Sir Alec in his research today.

Prof David Mottram - Doping and Anti-Doping in Sport

Doping in sport goes back as far as there has been sport, with dangerous substances, such as Strychnine and Nitro-Glycerine, being used until the early 20th Century. Over recent months various athletes have been banned for doping, countries have been ruled to have breaches Anti-Doping codes and several senior officials are being investigated for bribery and doping cover-ups. And the scale of the problem only seems to be getting bigger.

Prof David Mottram, Emeritus Professor of Pharmacy Practice at the School of Pharmacy and Biomolecular Sciences, Liverpool John Moore's University, will provide an insight into the world of doping in sport and detail the anti-doping rules and regulations that are in place to combat this threat. The international rules and regulations for the management of doping in sport, based on the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), will be explained. This will include a brief overview of the list of prohibited substances and methods, which are reviewed and updated annually following a comprehensive review.
