INTRODUCTION AND SPEAKERS PROFILE As in previous years, we offer a Special Bioforo meeting in December designed to show the research that our former students are carrying out outside the UPV/EHU. This year our speakers come from different countries (Germany, Switzerland, Spain and USA) and work in different areas in Biology: Bioinformatics, Cell Mechanics, Molecular Biology, Bioenergetics, and Structural Biology. Miguel Andrade He is interested in exploring gene function using computational techniques including new algorithms and the use of existing databases. He has a focus on studying the mechanisms involved in human disease with the goal of facilitating the development of better therapies. The results of his work are often distributed as software or online web tools. Take a look at the group members' publications or at their projects page for more information.

Assistant Professor Department of Biology, University of North Carolina at Pembroke. Her current research interest is Yeast Molecular Genetics, Epigenetic Regulation of Eukaryotic Gene Expression.In the eukaryotic cell nucleus, DNA is packaged with histones into nucleosomes, the repeating subunits of chromatin. The precise organization of DNA in chromatin has important functional consequences. DNA-template processes such as transcription, replication and chromosome segregation are dependent on the remarkable packaging of the DNA in chromatin. The long-range objective of her research is to understand the molecular mechanisms of chromatin-regulated gene activation. Her research has primarily focused on the role of histone H2A She has discovered that Htz1 functions to enable transcription by RNA pol II. Specifically, her data indicate that Htz1 possibly plays a role in elongation. She continues exploring this hypothesis using techniques of molecular genetics that will involve mutational analysis, genetic screens, chromatin immunoprecipitation, microarray analysis, real-time PCR, etc. Selected publications: Santisteban MS, Hang M, Smith MM.

5 Eduardo Rial. His main interest is Mitochondrial Bioenergetics The mitochondrial oxidative phosphorylation embraces the reactions that allow ATP synthesis using the energy made available from substrate oxidation at the respiratory chain. The two processes are coupled through the proton gradient generated during the transfer of electrons from the substrates to oxygen. His group investigates mechanisms that modulate the energetic efficiency of the process. The uncoupling proteins (UCPs) are carriers of the mitochondrial inner membrane whose biological function is to allow a regulated discharge of the proton gradient. There are a large number of processes that appear to involve the UCPs. For example, this energy dissipatory mechanism is used by mammals to maintain body temperature when cold exposed or to burn excess calories ingested with the diet. Since the UCPs catalyze the re-entry of protons into the mitochondrial matrix, they cause an increase in the rate of respiration that leads to a decrease in the production of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and therefore the UCPs are an element of the cellular defenses against oxidative stress. Thus, the uncoupling protein UCP2, which is found in many tissues and organs, is over-expressed in pathological processes in which ROS play an important role (atherosclerosis, cancer, chronic inflammation, etc.). Over the past few years, genes coding for UCPs have been described not only in animals but also in plants and even in unicellular organisms. The ubiquitous presence of the UCPs suggests that physiological uncoupling of oxidative phosphorylation is a general strategy adopted by living organisms to regulate the energetic efficiency and, for example, modulate the mitochondrial production of ROS. The group has been investigating for nearly thirty years the physiological role and the molecular mechanisms of transport and regulation of the uncoupling proteins UCP1 and UCP2.

Curr Chem Biol 3: Guillermo Montoya Guillermo Montoya was born in Madrid (Spain) in 1967 and obtained his Bachelor degree in Biochemistry from the Universidad del País Vasco in 1990, and his PhD in Chemistry from the Universidad de Zaragoza in He obtained both a European Molecular Biology Organisation (EMBO) and a Federation of European Biochemical Societies (FEBS) Fellowship and moved to the Max Planck-Institut für Biophysik in Frankfurt am Main (Germany), where he worked on membrane protein crystallisation in the group of the Nobel Laureate H. Michel. Montoya later obtained both an EMBO long-term and a Marie Curie Fellowship and spent nine years at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) in Heidelberg (Germany), working in I. Sinning s Group where he focused on the crystallisation of the cytocrome bc1 membrane protein complex and later pioneered the study of the structure of the signal recognition particle (SRP), an essential ribonucleoprotein complex involved in protein targeting. In 1998 he was appointed as Researcher at the Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC) and was awarded a Peter und Traudl Engelhorn Foundation Research Fellowship. Since 2003 he has been an Honorary Professor in Biochemistry at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid and Member of the working group in charge of the design of the biocrystallography beamline at the Spanish Synchrotron (ALBA). Montoya has been Head of the CNIO s Macromolecular Crystallography Group since February 2002 and was acting Director of the Structural Biology and Biocomputing Programme from November 2003 to January In 2009 he was awarded the National Prizes of the Fundación Mutua Madrileña and the Fundación Caja Rural de Granada-Ministerio de Sanidad.
