This is a uniquely fascinating time in human genetics and genomics, as the field moves beyond the cataloguing of associated variation towards fundamental biological inference and translational implementation.
The programme will cover a range of topics including our current understanding of the genomics of rare and complex human diseases. There will be sessions addressing gene regulation and functional analysis.
The latest advances in sequencing technology and the future of whole genome and clinical sequencing will also be discussed. The schedule is highly interactive with presentations by the tutors and students on cutting-edge topics in human genomics.
The summer school is more akin to a ‘science summer camp’ for graduate students with discussions and debates on the future of human genomics. A unique feature is the one-to-one mentoring on all aspects of genomics, including advice on publishing and pursuing an academic research career.

27-30 August 2016, Heidelberg, Germany
This conference has played a very important role in the transcription field over the past 20 years, being both very well attended and generating highly interactive discussions.
The EMBL Transcription and Chromatin meeting has a long-standing tradition in shaping the field of transcriptional regulation.
The meeting brings together leading experts covering all aspects of transcription from cis-regulatory function, long range regulation, 3-dimensional looping, the basal transcriptional machinery, RNA polymerase regulation and function, nucleosome positioning, chromatin modifications, chromatin remodelling, and epigenetic inheritance of transcriptional silencing.
The meeting contains many talks selected from the abstracts that are interspersed with invited speakers, discussing the latest breakthroughs in transcriptional regulation.

The BAMB - Buildings As Material Banks - Project Consortium has the pleasure to invite you to the launch of its Stakeholder Network. The EU-funded H2020 BAMB project brings 16 parties throughout Europe together for one mission: enabling a systemic shift in the building sector by creating circular solutions.
Today, building materials end up as waste when no longer needed. To avoid destroying ecosystems, increasing environmental costs and creating risks of resource scarcity, the building industry needs to move towards a circular economy – and BAMB will provide the tools.
The first BAMB Stakeholder Network meeting will introduce you to the project agenda and provides you with the opportunity to get involved by joining the Stakeholder Network.
21-23 April 2016, Pune, India
Water is a pressing issue in current times. The increase in the urban population, limiting natural resources and improper water management has increased the need for proper water management.
The Indo-European partnership for research and innovation has been devised with the aim to bring good practices and technologies in the sector of water management.
The idea is to bring together skilled agencies including research organizations, universities, NGOs and SMEs from India and European Union (EU) to share their expertise and set examples in water treatment, wastewater treatment, recycle and reuse, which whould serve as models for similar scenarios across India and the globe.
Four projects have been sanctioned under the partnership - Eco India, NaWaTech, SARASWATI and SWINGS.
