Conferences and symposiums EMBO Workshop "Molecular biology of mitochondrial gene maintenance and expression"

Other Bro, Stockholm, Sweden

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. 

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.
