Société Française de Biochimie et Biologie Moléculaire

Dear colleagues,

We are very happy to announce the second French congress on Integrative Structural Biology (BSI), jointly organized by the Association Française de Cristallographie (AFC) and the Société Française de Biophysique (SFB), on the Paris-Saclay campus from November 29 to December 3 2021.


The scientific program is available on the congress website ( 

You can also follow us on twitter (@bsi2021).

Looking forward to seeing you on the Paris-Saclay campus!

With kind regards,


The organizing and scientific committees


For more than 20 years, the Gene Transcription in Yeast meeting series biannually brings together researchers using yeast to study mechanisms of gene expression. Owing to the exceptional experimental accessibility of yeasts - in vivo and in vitro, in S. cerevisiae, S. pombe and other yeasts - the yeast community keeps generating both pioneering method development as well as new concepts that often inspired analogous discoveries in the metazoan/human system. The meeting traditionally covers all steps from chromatin to transcription to RNA processing, and integrates different approaches such as structural biology, biochemistry, genetics, cell biology, high-throughput, computational, systems and single-cell technologies. The subtitle “From single molecules to phase separation” reflects both a renewed attention to the individual molecule as well as the will to embrace the exciting discoveries on liquid-liquid phase separation (LLPS) mediating the compartmentalization of many cellular, including nuclear functions.

in Krakow that are aimed at encouraging participation of the next
generation of researchers:

    -FEBS Congress bursaries for early-career researchers presenting
their work at the event
    -FEBS YSF grants for PhD students and postdocs selected to attend the
FEBS Young Scientists' Forum (YSF) before moving on to the FEBS Congress
