Online with LSE: Using Fidelity of Implementation to Improve Research on the Effectiveness of High-Impact Instructional Practices

September 20 EDT @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

This session of Online with LSE hosts Erika Offerdahl, Associate Professor at Washington State University, for a discussion of how she used a fidelity of implementation (FOI) framework to identify the critical components of formative assessment. This work highlights the importance of clearly defining the salient features of high-impact instructional practices for designing research to empirically determine how and under what conditions student learning is most effectively supported.

EMBO Workshop: Creating is Understanding: Synthetic Biology Masters Complexity

September 22 EDT @ 8:00 am - September 25 EDT @ 5:00 pm
Meyerhofstraße 1, Heidelberg, Germany, Meyerhofstraße 1
Heidelberg, Germany

Most engineered systems in biology are inspired by natural systems. Many achievements in synthetic biology that we have witnessed in the past decade, directly or indirectly, resulted from studies that were carried out in the context of basic/fundamental biology, the purposes of which were not engineering but understanding. A few examples are the natural regulatory response of the cell to its environment inspired the development of synthetic regulatory circuits, the understanding of cellular networks led the way to the optimisation…

Targeted Protein Degradation: From Chemical Biology to Drug Discovery

September 24 EDT @ 8:30 am - 6:00 pm
The New York Academy of Sciences, 7 World Trade Center, 250 Greenwich Street, 40th Floor
New York, NY 10007 United States

Targeted protein degradation is a new therapeutic approach with potential to inhibit “undruggable” drivers of disease. This one-day symposium, featuring keynote speaker James Bradner of Novartis Institutes for BioMedical Research, will highlight the latest advances in the field of targeted protein degradation and showcase the benefits of PROTACs over traditional small molecule inhibitors. Abstract submissions are invited for a poster session—the deadline is Friday, August 2nd. For the meeting agenda and to register, please visit

Exploring Biological Sequences

October 8 EDT @ 8:30 am - October 10 EDT @ 5:15 pm
EMBL-EBI, Hinxton
Cambridge, United Kingdom

This workshop will introduce basic bioinformatics approaches that are used to find, analyse and understand nucleotide or protein sequences. It will explore how to conduct searches across biological databases using both metadata and sequence data approaches. The course will explain how sequence searching techniques work, and how to use them effectively to find relevant results. Practical exercises will develop skills in searching for, accessing and aligning sequences; through the use of sample datasets participants will learn how to discover more…

EMBO | EMBL Symposium: The Non-Coding Genome

October 16 EDT @ 8:00 am - October 19 EDT @ 5:00 pm
EMBL Heidelberg, Germany, Meyerhofstrasse 1
Heidelberg, 69117 Germany

In the 50 years since RNA was identified as a central component in the flow of genetic information, it has become increasingly clear that RNA performs many additional diverse and interesting functions. Regulatory RNAs are known to play central roles across numerous biological processes required for cell viability and function. Moreover, prokaryotic and eukaryotic genomes are pervasively transcribed to generate many additional RNAs with unknown functions, raising the question: What else does RNA do? This symposium will explore the diverse,…

Online with LSE: Exploring How Students Reason about Complex Processes

October 18 EDT @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

This session of Online with LSE hosts Emily Scott, a Research Scientist in the Department of Biology at the University of Washington, to explore how students reason about complex processes encountered in everyday life (e.g., Why does a blister form when a person touches a hot pan?). She will discuss her work developing a framework to characterize how students explain complex processes and its implications for instructors. Read the full paper here: Developing an Analytical Framework to Characterize Student Reasoning about Complex…
