About Amsterdam

The most populous municipality Amsterdam is the capital of the Netherlands. Amsterdam has a population of 2,410,960 people.  The city is located in the province of North Holland in the west of the country but is not its capital, which is Haarlem. The city square area comprises a part of the Randstad, one of the larger conurbations in Europe, with a population of approximately 7 million. Originating as a small fishing village in the late 12th century, Amsterdam became one of the most important ports in the world during the Dutch Golden Age, a result of its innovative developments in trade.

As the commercial capital of the Netherlands and one of the top financial centers in Europe, Amsterdam is considered an alpha world city by the Globalization and World Cities (GaWC) study group. The city is also the cultural capital of the Netherlands. Many large Dutch institutions have their headquarters there, and seven of the world's 500 largest companies, including Philips and ING, are based in the city. Amsterdam was ranked 2nd best city to live in by the Economist Intelligence Unit and the 12th on quality of living for environment and infrastructure by Mercer. The city was ranked 3rd in innovation by Australian innovation agency 2thinknow in their Innovation Cities Index 2009.The Amsterdam seaport to this day remains the second in the country, and the fifth largest seaport in Europe.  Famous peoples of the Amsterdam are the diarist Anne Frank, artists Rembrandt van Rijn and Vincent van Gogh, and philosopher Baruch Spinoza.

 

Sessions & Tracks

Genetics and genetic engineering

The genetic engineering is also called as genetic modification. It is the direct manipulation of an organism's of the genome by using biotechnology. Genes may be removed, or "knocked out", using a nuclease. Gene is targeting a different technique that uses homologous recombination to change an endogenous gene, and this can be used to delete a gene, remove exons, add a gene, or to introduce genetic mutations.  It is a set of technologies used to change the genetic makeup of the cell and including the transfer of genes across species boundaries to produce improved novel organisms. Genetic engineering does not normally include traditional animal and plant breeding, in vitro fertilization, induction of polyploidy, mutagenesis and cell fusion techniques that do not use recombinant nucleic acids or a genetically modified organism in the process.

Synthetic Biology and Genetic Engineering

Synthetic biology involves the design and construction of entirely new biological systems from standardized genetic components, together with the radical redesign of existing life for new purposes. Research is also already underway that hopes to use synthetic biology in the manufacture of improved biochemicals. The adoptive transfer of genetically engineered T cells with cancer-targeting receptors has shown tremendous promise for eradicating tumors in clinical trials. Plant synthetic biology has an emerging field that plays an important role in future agriculture for traditional crop improvement, but also in enabling tools for novel bioproduction in plants.

Evolutionary genetics

Regulation of Gene expression includes a wide range of mechanisms that are used by cells to increase or decrease the production of specific gene products (protein or RNA) and is informally termed gene regulation. Any step of gene expression may be modulated, from the DNA-RNA transcription step to post-translational modification of a protein. Currently based on solid-phase DNA synthesis, it differs from molecular cloning and polymerase chain reaction (PCR) in that the user does not have to begin with pre-existing DNA sequences. Therefore, it is possible to make a completely synthetic double-stranded DNA molecule with no limits on either nucleotide sequence or size.

Gene Mutation & Cloning

Cells are as complex as they are tiny and much is still unknown about the inner workings of these building blocks of life. The research of cellular and molecular biologists are integral to things like the development of new medications, the protection of aquatic ecosystems and the improvement of agricultural products. Advances in genomics have triggered a revolution in discovery-based research to understand even the most complex biological systems such as the brain. The field includes efforts to determine the entire DNA sequence of organisms and fine-scale genetic mapping.

Human Genetics and Genetic Disorders

Human genetics encompasses a variety of overlapping fields including classical genetics, cytogenetic, molecular genetics, biochemical genetics, genomics, population genetics, developmental genetics, clinical genetics, and genetic counselling. Genetic disorders can affect any body system and any age group. Genome mapping is to place a collection of molecular markers onto their respective positions on genome. Genes can be viewed as one special type of genetic markers in the construction of genome maps, and the map is mapped the same way as any other markers. The quality of genetic maps is largely dependent upon the two factors, the number of genetic markers on the map and the size of the mapping population.

  • Human Genome mapping
  • Drug treatments
  • RNAi therapies Methods/tools for variant calling in human genomes
  • Genome sequencing and assembly
  • Methods for data integration
  • Novel bioinformatics/computational tools and methods

Clinical Genetic

Clinical Genetics is the medical speciality which provides a diagnostic service and genetic counselling for individuals or families with, or at risk of, conditions which may have a genetic basis. The aim of Genetic Services is to help those affected by, or at risk of, a genetic disorder to live and reproduce as normally as possible. Individuals acknowledged through childhood or pregnancy screening programmes also require genetic services. Testing for genetic factors that affect drug recommending will also increasingly become a significant activity. In the future, as the genetic contributions to common disorders such as diabetes and coronary heart disease are identified, genetic services may be required for those at high risk.

Epigenetics & Chromatin

Clinical epigenetics has the application of molecular biology techniques detecting alterations in DNA methylation or histone modification to diagnose or study disorders characterized by heritable defects in the expression of a gene or genome.  Epigenetics study the heritable changes in gene expression (active versus inactive genes) that do not involve changes to the underlying DNA sequence a change in phenotype without a change in genotype which in turn affects how cells read the genes. An epigenetic change may indirectly influence the expression of the genome. Plants growth depends on epigenetic processes for proper function.

Gene Therapy and Genetic Counselling

Genetic Transformation is the genetic alteration of the cell resulting from the direct uptake and incorporation of exogenous genetic material from its surroundings through the cell membrane. Genetic Transplantation is the moving of an organ from one body to another or from a donor site to another location on the person's own body, to replace the recipient's damaged or absent organ.

Regenerative Medicine and development

Regenerative medicine is a branch of translational research in tissue engineering and molecular biology which deals with the process of replacing, engineering or regenerating human cells, tissues or organs to restore or establish normal function. Many of the stem cells being studied are referred to as pluripotent, meaning they can give rise to any of the cell types in the body but they cannot give rise on their own to an entirely new body. The hope is that by regenerating the tissue, you're causing the repairs to grow so that it's like normal. The recent integration of emerging nanotechnology into biology and biomedicine has resulted in a range of pioneering nanoengineering efforts for the repair and regeneration of tissues and organs.

Pharmacogenetics

Pharmacogenetics studies the inherited genetic differences in drug metabolic pathways which can affect individual responses towards the drugs, both in their terms of therapeutic effect as well as adverse effects. Pharmacogenomics deals with the impact of acquired and inherited genetic variation on drug response in patients by correlating gene expression or single-nucleotide polymorphisms with pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics. Pharmacogenomics targets to develop sensible means to optimize drug therapy, with respect to the patients' genotype, to ensure maximum efficacy with minimal adverse effects.  Pharmacogenomics will allow the development of customized drugs to treat a wide range of health problems, including cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer disease, cancer, HIV/AIDS, and asthma.

Genetics and genetic disorders

Some disorders can be identified before birth through prenatal diagnosis (screening).Congenital Disorder, also known as the congenital disease, birth defect or anomaly is a condition existing at or before birth regardless of cause. Most genetic disorders are quite rare and affect one person in every several thousand or millions. A genetic disease is a genetic problem caused by one or more abnormalities in the genome, especially a condition that is present from birth congenital.

Immunology & Immunogenetics

Genetics has a significant role in the investigation of single qualities of genes and their part in the way attributes or conditions are passed starting with one era then onto the next. The investigation of the atomic and cell parts that involve the safe framework including their capacity and connection becomes the focal art of immunology. Autoimmune diseases, such as type 1 diabetes, are complex genetic traits which result from defects in the immune system. Identification of genes defining the immune defects may identify new target genes for therapeutic approaches. Alternatively, genetic variations can also help to define the immunological pathway leading to disease.

Bioinformatics in Human Genetics

Computational genomics refers to the use of computational and statistical analysis to decipher biology from genome sequences and related data, including DNA and RNA sequence as well as other "post-genomic" data. The combination with computational and statistical approaches to understanding the function of the genes and statistical association analysis, this field is also often referred to as Computational and Statistical Genetics/genomics. With the current abundance of massive biological datasets, computational studies have become one of the most important means of biological discovery. The field is defined and includes foundations in the computer sciences, applied mathematics, animation, biochemistry, chemistry, biophysics, molecular genetics, neuroscience and visualization. Computational biology is different from biological computation, which is a subfield of computer engineering using bioengineering and biology to build computers but is similar to bioinformatics.

Tissue Engineering and Biobanking

Tissue building is the utilization of a mix of cells, designing and materials techniques, and appropriate biochemical and physicochemical elements to enhance or supplant natural tissues. Molecular Biotechnology is the use of living systems and organisms to develop or to make products, or "any technological application that uses the biological systems, living organisms or derivatives, to make or modify products or processes for specific use. Depending on the tools and applications, it often overlaps with the related fields of bioengineering, biomedical engineering, biomanufacturing and molecular engineering.
