It is our great pleasure to invite you on behalf of the Polish Biochemical Society and Polish Cell Biology Society to the 2nd Congress of Polish Biochemistry, Cell biology, Biotechnology and Bioinformatics “Bio2016 – Expanding beyond the limits” to be held in Wroclaw in 2016. The Bio2016 Congress will take place from September 13 to 16, 2016, at the University of Wroclaw, Poland. With this joint congress, the organizers expect to bring together a wide range of researchers from all field of biosciences. The Congress joint events will cover the entire spectrum of molecular biosciences with symposia from single molecule level to system biology. In addition, there will be sessions on women in science, science & business and science & society. The registration and abstract submission will start since February, 2016.
Plenary speakers include Nobel laureate Ada Yonath (Weizmann Institute of Science, Rehovot), Alexander Wlodawer (Center for Cancer Research, Frederick), Krzysztof Palczewski (Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland) and Nicolaus Rajewsky (Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine, Berlin).
Through the tremendous advances in the technology of mass spectrometry-based proteomics and its applications, the research has expanded to most areas of biology that deal with proteins. This conference will focus on the application of proteomics to cell biology and unraveling disease mechanisms by addressing conceptually novel ways to study long-standing questions in these fields.
As 2016 marks the 20th year since the word “proteomics” was coined, the progress this scientific community has collectively achieved is tremendous. Today, we witness the real and exciting prospects of a human proteome map that can be tapped into for precision medicine. By the twin track of deep proteome sequencing and target quantification, combining the mass spectrometry techniques of data dependent and independent acquisition, complementary top-down and bottom up analysis, along with a host of non-MS-based systems approaches, we stand now to revolutionize our perception of the proteomic landscape and with it the very basics of all molecular and cellular processes. For the past years, HUPO has been making a great evolution on advancing the science of proteome. To continue the object from the past congress, the HUPO 2016 in Taipei is focusing on “Precision Proteomics for Precision Biology and Medicine”. This unique platform is going to provide a great opportunity for proteomics scientists to stimulate and exchange the most up-to-date science knowledge.
