In this fifth installment of the "Genetic Manipulation of Neuronal Activity" conference at Janelia, presentations will highlight advances in the development and use of new genetic reagents for the exogenous control of neural circuit activity, including naturally evolved light-gated ion channels and pumps, mutagenized temperature-sensitive synaptic transmission components, rationally designed photo-switches, "orthogonal" drug/receptor pairs and others. We will bring together leaders in the field to review progress in the design and use of current tools and, more importantly, to discuss the development of novel tools and their potential applications.View Full Details
In the sixth installment of this conference, we will showcase the development of cutting-edge tools and technology for imaging, from cells to intact animals. Sessions will cover the design and discovery of new fluorescent proteins (and intriguing alternatives), and their incorporation into sensors for signaling molecules and cellular states. Innovative imaging modalities making use of such reagents, as well as biological discoveries gleaned from such experiments, will also be presented. It is our hope that the meeting will present a clear picture of how far these tools have come in recent years, and what additional reagents and capabilities are required to continue the advance of the Age of Light.View Full Details
Chemical imaging probes remain an essential part of modern biological research. This conference will bring together the 'brightest' probe-builders and probe-users to discuss opportunities in the field and foster tighter collaborations between different disciplines.View Full Details
