About the conference

The ribosome is the macromolecular machine responsible for synthesizing proteins in all domains of life. The fundamental process of protein synthesis is highly regulated and this conference focuses on the plethora of ligands, including RNA, protein and small molecules, which interact with the ribosome to evoke a response to a diverse range of conditions and stimuli. The EMBO Conference will cover aspects including:

  1. Ribosome biogenesis: how does the cell assemble such a large and complex machine?
  2. Initiation of translation: comparing canonical with non-canonical (e.g. viral IRES) events.
  3. Elongation of translation, which encompasses tRNA delivery, decoding, proofreading, peptide bond formation, stalling and translocation.
  4. Antibiotics and resistance; the ribosome is one of the major targets for antibiotics within the bacterial cell.
  5. Quality control, termination and recycling events.

In addition to presenting state-of-the-art technologies and methodologies to dissect ribosome function, the EMBO Conference will provide an up-to-date overview of ribosome structure and function as well as providing an opportunity for students, junior and senior researchers to meet, share new ideas and discuss the future directions of this active field.
