Event Name2018 Genetic Code Expansion Conference
Event Date(s) Thursday, August 09, 2018  to Saturday, August 11, 2018
Event Location Oregon State University
Corvallis, Oregon
DescriptionThis will be the second Genetic Code Expansion Conference aiming at bringing together diverse scientific disciplines that focus on developing and using GCE technology. Attendees from industry, academia and other research institutions will convene to discuss the latest techniques and approaches that are widely applicable but not limited to bioorganic chemistry within cellular and molecular processes, drug discovery efforts, material science and development of interdisciplinary research tools and probes. This conference will be capped at 125 attendees and acceptance will be given to those presenting their research.

This second GCE conference will broadly focus on the development of the technology and selected areas of future impact. Sessions will include foundational genetic code expansion technology, design of new cellular tools to probe biology, chemical approaches that facilitate advances in imaging cellular control, strategies for studying protein post-translational modification, advances in bioorthogonal chemistry and code expansion.

Conferees are encouraged to present posters; poster presenters should submit an abstract with their applications on the GCE conference web site when it opens. Submission of applications in early 2018 is strongly encouraged because we expect the meeting to be oversubscribed. A number of poster presenters from among the early applications will be invited to present short talks. Attendees from the genetic code expansion workshop (July 2017) will be given preferential admittance to the conference.
