23 - 28 July 2017
Kloster Banz, Germany
This conference has taken place every two years since 1999, alternating between the US (under the auspices of FASEB) and Europe. It has been organized previously as a Harden conference in summer 2013 (Cambridge, UK). The last meeting was held in summer 2015 (Steamboat Springs, US), and had a strong focus on DNA replication, recombination and repair. This meeting shares successful core sessions with previous meetings. In contrast to previous meetings, we put a strong focus on new emerging topics: Recent technological developments pave the way to understand the functions of helicases within larger complexes and within networks of interaction partners. Genome wide screening approaches allowed for the identification of physiological targets and interaction partners. These discoveries sparked structural biology and biophysical studies to understand the molecular basis of interactions and the underlying mechanisms of helicase regulation. In addition, single molecule techniques now provide detailed insight into the dynamics of RNA- and DNA-based machines, the effect of their interaction partners and the regulation of their activities. Furthermore, high-end imaging approaches afford insight into the function of these enzymes in their in vivo environment at increasing spatial and temporal resolution.
