XI-ZOMES

ABOUT THE CONFERENCE

The ZOMES conferences have a long history and tradition. Every conference is unique in its location and main slogans reflecting new development of the research field. The biannual conference series originated as an initiative of scientists studying three related major protein complexes, the 19S proteasome, the COP9 signalosome, and the translation initiation factor eIF3 - called PCI complexes or the “ZOMES”. ZOMES I, held in Israel in 1999, brought together researchers from different fields with common interests in these protein complexes, presented their common or different cellular functions in e. g. development, cell signaling, cell cycle, proteolysis and protein translation. The ZOMES conferences are interactive because they bundle scientists working on evolutionary different organisms. The following ZOMES conferences took place (see below):

The XI-ZOMES conference will be co-organized by the ProteCure COST Action.

COST (European Cooperation in Science and Technology) is a funding agency for research and innovation networks. Our Actions help connect research initiatives across Europe and enable scientists to grow their ideas by sharing them with their peers. This boosts their research, career and innovation. www.cost.eu
