About the Workshop

We are hopeful that many of you will be able to attend the EMBO workshop in 2022 and we are looking forward to exciting talks and discussions on the molecular mechanisms and expression of mitochondrial genes.

Mitochondrial gene maintenance and expression are essential for aerobic energy conversion and, therefore, for cellular homeostasis and viability. The mitochondrial genome (mtDNA) encodes key subunits of the oxidative phosphorylation system and RNA components necessary for intramitochondrial translation. All other protein factors mediating mtDNA replication and repair, transcription, post-transcriptional RNA processing and translation are encoded in the nuclear genome. Dysfunction of these mechanisms underlies a great variety of human diseases. Despite recent developments in the identification and characterization of mtDNA maintenance and expression factors, their molecular mechanisms remain often poorly understood. In this workshop we intend to highlight and expose the current frontiers in our understanding of the basic molecular regulatory mechanisms of mitochondrial genes by covering four major topics: 1) Maintenance of mtDNA, 2) Mitochondrial transcription and RNA maturation, 3) Mitoribosome and translation, and 4) Mitochondrial genes in cell homeostasis. The meeting will assemble a group of leading molecular and structural biologists and biochemists studying these processes in various model organisms using interdisciplinary approaches. The planned meeting will be essential to solidifying concepts and defining priorities and new directions, helping to understand the basic, fundamental molecular mechanisms of maintenance and expression of mitochondrial genes.

Payment

Payment for the registration will open upon application approval after 1 April 2022. Terms and conditions, including the cancellation policy, will be announced then.

Selection criteria

Applicants will be asked to submit an abstract describing the work they plan to present at the meeting. We will base our selection of participants on how well this work fits into the workshop general theme. We will also make sure to have an even gender balance and a wide geographical representation of participants. We will give preference to young scientists and PIs at an early stage of their career in the selection of the short talks. Twenty-one short talks will be selected.

Abstract guidelines

Abstracts should ideally describe unpublished material and be limited to 350 words maximum, including references. Please indicate if you wish to present a short talk. The abstract should display all authors and their full affiliation, a title and a short text describing your research.

Poster specifications

Posters will be portrait, A0 format (height 119 cm x width 84 cm).

Travel grants

A limited number of travel grants are available for participants. Applicants do not need to apply separately for travel grants for this event but should indicate on the registration form if they wish to be considered for a travel grant. Selection of awardees is handled directly by the organizer who will notify all eligible participants. More information is available at EMBO Travel Grants page.

Child care grant

EMBO Courses and Workshops offers grants to offset additional child care costs incurred by participants or speakers when participating at any EMBO Courses and Workshop funded meeting. Eligible costs include fees for a caregiver or child-care facility, travel costs for a caregiver, or travel costs for taking the child to the meeting etc. Please indicate on the registration form whether you would like to be considered for the grant. Please also describe how you intend to use the child care grant and specify the sum that you will need.
