Conference Description

This meeting is designed to promote the development of a multi-disciplinary research community at an international arena, which is expected to represent diverse disciplines like proteomics, molecular and cell biology, molecular genetics, biophysical chemistry, computational biology, systems biology, medicine and agriculture. The objective of the conference is to establish comprehensive networks of hundreds of protein posttranslational modifications (PTMs) as well as the intricate modifying/demodifying enzyme-substrate cascades during the growth and development of eukaryotic model organisms. These networks of PTMs should play important roles in regulation of cell growth, signaling, differentiation, apoptosis and epigenetics under diverse physiological conditions and in response to versatile biotic and abiotic stresses. The outcomes of the PTM proteomics and molecular systems biology research will promote advancement in field of life science and ultimately be applied to agricultural and medical biotechnology to improve both crop and bioenergy productivities and to find novel remedies to diseases.

What is a GRC? Gordon Research Conferences (GRC) are 5-day meetings that bring scientists together from around the world to present and discuss unpublished research with other leaders in their field.

Related Conference

This Gordon Research Conference (GRC) series is related to the "Posttranslational Modification Networks" Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) series. Although a related GRS will typically be scheduled in conjunction with its parent GRC each time it meets, that may not always be the case. Refer to the individual meetings in the Meeting History section below for more details. For more information about the associated Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) series, click here.

What is a GRS? Gordon Research Seminars (GRS) are 2-day meetings that bring graduate students and post-docs together to discuss their cutting edge research among peers and mentors. Each GRS immediately precedes an associated Gordon Research Conference (GRC), and topics addressed at the GRS relate closely to the GRC.
