Molecular Farming - plant biologicals By Shara Cohen
eBook (PDF): $23.42
"Plant biotechnology offers an unprecendented opportunity to produce modern, recombinant pharmaceutical proteins at scale, quickly and at low cost. In essence, a “low-tech high... More > technology”, it has the potential to address many of the global health issues that cannot be solved using conventional technologies. This meeting followed on from the first Molecular Farming meeting in January 2006, and visited the latest advances and enabling technologies, and reviewed the progress that is being made towards the first commercial products."

Understanding dendritic cells and their ability to regulate immune responses By Shara Cohen
eBook (PDF): $23.42
Dendritic cells (DC) continue to provoke much interest amongst immunologists by virtue of their key role in a number of aspects of the immune response. This meeting addressed some of these and...

Internal Ribosome Entry Site (IRES) advances and applications By Shara Cohen
Paperback: $42.24
Prints in 3-5 business days
Protein synthesis is a three-stage process, consisting of initiation, elongation and termination. The final stage of gene expression involves numerous cellular proteins and RNAs. The initiation step... More > is the primary focus for regulation. Translation initiation on the majority of cellular mRNAs is mediated by a mechanism involving recognition of the 5’ terminal cap-structure (m7GpppN). However, a different mechanism, termed internal initiation, was first shown to occur on certain uncapped viral mRNAs. An internal ribosome entry site (IRES) element present within the 5’ untranslated region (UTR) of the viral RNA directs initiation of protein synthesis at an internal position hundreds of nucleotides downstream from the 5’ terminus. IRES elements are highly structured and position the ribosome at, or just upstream of, the initiation codon. IRES elements have been found in certain cellular mRNAs; these generally encode proteins involved in apoptosis, cell cycle regulation or stress responses.< Less

Proteomics: Advances in biomarker discovery By Shara Cohen
Paperback: $41.99
Prints in 3-5 business days
Proteomics is an exciting area of research that holds promise for the future. It is widely accepted that proteomics holds the potential to identify new diagnostic and or prognostic biomarkers, and... More > drug targets for the development of new therapeutic approaches for fighting disease. Proteomics, the large scale analysis of gene expression at the protein level incorporates structural, interaction and expression proteomics. Using expression proteomics, the aim is to detect and identify all, or a subset, of the proteins in a given sample and find out which of these proteins are present, absent, or differentially expressed in a related sample subject to as specific variation.… Meeting’s Chair: Dr Ayesha De Souza, St. George's, University of London, UK.< Less

More > are not expected to juggle a career with family commitments and we all know that single-mindedly following one’s ambition comes more naturally to the male of the species! So, how can you break through the glass ceiling and achieve your goals? This one day meeting bought together women from many different scientific backgrounds and at different stages in their careers, all with inspirational life stories, who are challenging the old order. There were talks and advice from experts to help with CVs, grant and fellowship writing, interview techniques, time management, networking and a whole host of the other skills required to not just survive but thrive in science.
