Seminar Room 48e, EMBL Hamburg
Abstract: The SAXS/WAXS beamline at the Australian Synchrotron is an undulator beamline optically designed for SAXS measurements, with a flexible WAXS capability also part of the endstation setup. Constructed in 2008 with a full User program running since 2009, the beamline has seen continuous development ever since. The beamline adopts an agile, hands on and strategic approach in developing a wide range of hardware and software capabilities most needed by its User community. The beamline s features include flexible experiment capabilities, solution scattering, grazing incidence scattering including reflectivity, low instrument background, highly automated optics, and extensive suite of custom endstation software written within the beamline team. This talk will highlight key aspects of the beamline that enable a high level of User productivity across a diverse range of disciplines. This talk will include an update on recent and ongoing developments, focusing on aspects which might be useful to other beamlines.

The Operon, EMBL Heidelberg
Abstract: Humans are distinctly different from all the other animals, in ways both good and bad. But articulating what that difference consists of remains a complex and difficult task, tackled by biologists, anthropologists and brain scientists.

We are, presumably, the only known species with a mind set on unravelling who and what we are. Today, scientists are making use of genomics to realign H. Sapiens with respect to H. neanderthalensis, hominids and apes. But what are the assumptions that are built into these research projects? And what is the nature of the evolved cognitive faculties that allow people to relate and bond to one another in our species-specific way? Are some of our behavioral responses hardwired in neural networks as a result of our evolutionary history, or does the ultimate strength of the human species lie in its apparently unlimited neurological plasticity?

And while humans seem so fabulously well equipped to relate to one another and spin intricate webs of social relations, at the same time they tirelessly invent ways and means of destroying each other in warfare. Is such behaviour to be considered a part of our human nature? Globally speaking, what role do nature, culture and our social environment play in the crafting of humans?

Wednesday, 23 September 2015, 11:00 Add to calendar Modulating the gut microbiota to reduce chronic non-communicable disease risk change it, feed it, swap it! Kieran Tuohy, Department of Food Quality and Nutrition, Research and Innovation Centre, Fondazione Edmund Mach, San Michele all Adige, Trento, Italy, Italy Host: Kiran Patil
Small Operon, EMBL Heidelberg
Abstract: The gut microbiome is now recognised as an important player in human health, determining disease risk through interactions with host metabolism, immune system and even brain function. Diet is a major modulator of gut microbiome structure and metabolic activity, and the flow of biologically active metabolites derived from the gut appears to play a regulatory role in many important host physiological processes. This presentation will discuss different strategies for modulating microbiome structure and function using both diet and more radical approaches. It will present data from recent human feeding studies linking gut microbiome modulation with protection for cardio-metabolic disease. It will provide insight into how bariatric surgery, through microbiome modulation, may impact on disease risk in the morbidly obese and finally, it will discuss how the omics technologies, applied in a multidisciplinary manner, are radically changing both our interpretation of diet:microbe:host interactions and our ability to study and model these interactions. The presentation will conclude with a discussion of the therapeutic potential of faecal microbiome transplant (FMT), identifying a clear need for models of gut microbiome structure and function based on ecological principles and high resolution omics data. An obvious target would be the development of statistical models describing microbiome structure and metabolic output capable of predicting which bacteria or metabolite profile may modulate metabolic and immune pathways involved in energy homeostasis, resolution of chronic low-grade systemic inflammation and brain function (e.g. appetite regulation and cognition). The aim is to provide the scientific basis for rational faecal microbiome transplant (RFMT) whereby faecal donors are selected on the basis of their potential to modify microbiome:host cross talk and reduce the risk of chronic diseases like cardiometabolic and autoimmune diseases, rather than simply providing a complex microbial inoculum for pathogen exclusion.

Seminar Room 48e, EMBL Hamburg
Abstract: Virus attachment to cells initiates infection and is also a key determinant of host range, tissue tropism and pathogenesis. Carbohydrates such as sialic acid are prominently displayed on many cell surfaces, and they are frequently used by many viruses as their initial, and sometimes only, attachment receptors. Understanding how viruses engage sialic acid is essential for combating infection and designing improved therapeutic viral vectors. Recent advances in studies of virus-glycan interactions have made it possible to rapidly identify specific receptors using glycan array screening, define the atomic level structure of virus-glycan interactions using crystallography, and generate recombinant viruses or pseudoviruses to rationalize the effect of glycan binding in cell entry, tissue tropism, and disease pathogenesis.
I will report on the current state of our ongoing efforts to define the receptor binding properties of human pathogenic viruses that use sialylated glycan receptors for their cell attachment. In combination with mutagenesis experiments and functional studies, structural analyses have enabled us to understand the determinants of specificity and offer an excellent platform for the development of antiviral agents. Furthermore, knowledge about glycan binding can also inform the retargeting of viruses to specific tissues, which is important for gene delivery as well as oncolysis.

Print Media Academy
Abstract: In their book, Tomorrow's Table, Pamela Ronald, a geneticist, and her husband, Raoul Adamchak, an organic farmer, argue that a judicious blend of two important strands of agriculture--genetic engineering and organic farming--is key to helping feed the world's growing population in an ecologically balanced manner. Ronald will describe the challenges that farmers face, as they try to feed the world without further destroying the environment.

The lecture is for technologists, entrepreneurs, consumers, farmers, and policy decision makers who want to make food choices or create policy and businesses that will support ecologically responsible farming practices. It is also for anyone who wants accurate information about organic farming, genetic engineering, and their potential impacts on human health and the environment.

Large Operon, EMBL Heidelberg
Abstract: We are using a large-scale multi-omic study of 5,000 adult twins to explore the potential of omics in personalized medicine. The TwinsUK resource contains the most studied individuals on the planet with all subjects having over 3000 phenotypes and GWAS SNP chips. Over 3000 now have whole genome sequencing at 6-30X depth. The omics being explored includes sub-studies used to explore the basic heritability, QTLs and age relationships as well as disease associations. This includes (EpiTWIN) using whole genome methylation sequencing and 450k for epigenetics, which also uses the discordant twin design using for replication 30,000 twins from the Discotwin European consortium. The same individuals are tested using an integrated omics approach including- the Multiple Human Tissue Expression Resource (MuTHER) and with RNA array and sequencing in three tissues. In addition we have analysed 1000 blood metabolites using metabolomics (Mass Spec and NMR), >100 glycomics markers (IgG and total plasma), immunophenotyping (with 78,000 White cell sub-types) and gut microbiomes (16s and metagenomics) on the same twins. Most subjects are being followed longitudinally to assess prediction of incident disease. Examples of recent integrated Omic analyses include prediction of age, pain sensitivity, renal function, hypertension, cancer, depression, obesity and diabetes. Longitudinal twin studies with global collaborations are the ideal resource to study the potential of personalized medicine.
