Symposium - Writing and Editing the Ubiquitin Code

26-27 February 2020 | Bilbao, Spain

Many UbiCODE members participated in this two-day symposium organised by CIC bioGUNE, the University of the Basque Country and the CNRS, together with the scientific consortiums UbiCODE, TRIM-NET and UBIRed. Talks focused on how the ubiquitin code is written and edited though ligases and proteases, how the different modifications affect cell signaling, and how new technologies can be applied to analyze these modifications. Presentations covered a wide range of topics, like cancer, neurodegeneration and infectious diseases. The symposium gathered more than a 100 attendants, with more than 30 oral and 40 poster presentations by international leaders in the field, as well as national and local researchers from the University of Basque Country and CIC bioGUNE. Ines Tomaskovic (GUF, Dikic lab) and Evrydiki Asimaki (IMB, Ulrich lab) respectively received second and fourth best poster prizes.
