Symposium Regulation Redox regulation: Historical background and future developments

Faculté des sciences, Amphitheater 8, Vandoeuvre-lès-Nancy, Université de Lorraine

March 29-31, 2017

Redox regulation referred to as post-translational modifications affecting protein cysteine residues is of great importance for many biological processes. A milestone was the discovery in the 70s that photosynthesis is regulated at several entry points by such modifications. However, over the last decade, it has become obvious in all organisms that additional cellular functions and signaling pathways are controlled by redox changes, some of these being relevant for human health or microbial development and virulence. This redox biology symposium is the third of a series initiated in 2013 in Kaiserslautern followed by a second edition in 2015 already in Nancy. This edition will deal with redox regulation in eukaryote and bacterial systems with emphasis on plants as it is organized in the honor of Pr Jean Pierre Jacquot, who has made pioneering discoveries in this field and will officially retire in 2017.

“Contrat Jeune Scientifique” (Young Scientist Contract) – Call for applications – April 2017

Présentation CJS2017 bisInra and the Doctoral School RP2E offer during 2017 a “Contrat Jeune Scientifique” (Young Scientist Contract) for 3 years (duration for completion of a PhD).

Research will take place at Nancy (France). Candidates may choose among the five topics offered this year :
Topic 1 : Interactions between biogeochemical cycles of the main elements in forest ecosystems
Topic 2 : Microrefugia facing climate change: bioclimatic modeling of steep-sided valleys in northeastern France.
Topic 3 : The key role of biomechanics for shaping tree stems
Topic 4 : How do environmental and ontogenic factors modulate the distribution of growth along tree stems?
Topic 5 : Forest biomass and carbon accounting in the French forests: Identification and modelling of inter-specific, management-driven and environmental- patterns in wood density from new records of the French national forest inventory

Séminaire de Michiel VOS

(Lecturer, European Centre for Environment and Human Health, University of Exeter, UK)

Dr. Michiel Vos fera une conférence sur le thème

‘Natural variation in the social bacterium Myxococcus xanthus’

le Jeudi 9 mars 2017 à 14h00 à la Faculté des Sciences à Nancy – Amphi 7

The soil bacterium Myxococcus xanthus is best known for its ability to build multicellular fruiting bodies. This form of social development has been shown to be prone to ‘cheating’ behaviour by asocial clones. Previous work has mainly been based on laboratory strains. In this talk, I will describe work on the genetic, phenotypic and behavioural diversity of natural populations of this fascinating species.

Cette conférence à l’invitation du laboratoire DynAMic s’inscrit dans le cadre du Master BioMANE et est soutenue par le Labex ARBRE
