FEBS3+ Meeting: 86th Harden Conference - Machines on Genes 2022
22 May -
...This meeting will cover many of the molecular mechanisms by which large macromolecular machines carry out a diverse range of nucleic acid processes including DNA replication and repair, gene transcription and regulation, RNA processing and splicing, translation, nucleic acids structures and chromatin structure and epigenetic mechanisms. The meeting will also explore new quantitative techniques as well as theoretical approaches.
Epigenetics - why you don't have teeth in your eyeballs
...This factsheet discusses the impact that modifications to our genes have on our bodies and behavior. This factsheet was made to complement a public lecture at the British Science Festival 2014.
Recent developments in cryo-EM and their application to amyloids from human brain
...In this webinar we heard from the 2022 AstraZeneca Award winner, Dr Sjors Scheres at the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology, UK. During his Award lecture, Dr Scheres discussed his latest developments in cryo-EM and their application to amyloids from human brain.
New advances in DNA repair, structure, and protein quantification

CRISPR gene editing in the Xenopus model system
...In this webinar, we heard from Dr Annie Godwin from the University of Portsmouth, who discussed the range of approaches used by the European Xenopus Resource Centre to create transgenic frog lines.
Developments in drug discovery
...Part of our dedicated Early Career Researcher (ECR) series, this session featured four ECRs who shared their current work in the field of drug discovery.
Seeing DNA repair and mutagenesis in bacteria
...DNA repair and mutagenesis are essential for the stability and plasticity of genomes in all organisms. In this webinar, Dr Stephan Uphoff, the Biochemical Society's 2020 Colworth Medal winner, described the development of advanced fluorescence microscopy methods to observe protein function at the level of single molecules in individual bacterial cells.
Disassembly of the replicative helicase in eukaryotic cells
...In this webinar, we heard from the 2020 Early Career Research Award winner, Dr Sara Priego Moreno. During her Award Lecture, Sara explained the current knowledge of the mechanisms of CMG disassembly and their importance for the maintenance of genome integrity as well as emerging questions and future directions.
Developments in protein structures and genome integrity
...Part of our dedicated Biochemistry Focus Early Career Researcher (ECR) series, this webinar gave three ECR members of the Society the opportunity to share their developments in protein structures and genome integrity.
60 years of the Colworth Medal: a view across the decades (part 1)
...This webinar was part of a dedicated series celebrating the 60th anniversary of the Colworth Medal in 2023. In the first session, Colworth winners Mike Ferguson, Simon Boulton, Helen Walden, and David Grainger discussed their leading research and shared their experiences and advice for future biochemists.
