Female candidates get 1 extra year for each child born since receiving the PhD. The ECMTB Organizing Committee is setting up a Mentorship Program to facilitate research and career interactions between junior and senior scientists attending the meeting. Participants of ECMTB can sign up to be part of the mentorship program, either as a mentee, a mentor, or both. EMS is a conference where statisticians of all ages and from all regions meet to exchange ideas and talk about the newest developments on the broad field of statistics and probability theory.
The conference is organized every other year. Website coming soon. Proposals can be submitted as of 1 January using the electronic submission system on the WSC website. If you wish that your proposed session is considered as a BS-sponsored session, please indicate this by choosing the Bernoulli Society as the primary related ISI Association in the relevant field.
If you wish to list more than one Association, please note that your proposal will first be reviewed by the primary Association, under the guidance of its representative on the SPC. Each proposal should include: 1 a paragraph describing and justifying the proposed session; 2 a list of speakers and discussants that have agreed to participate; 3 an organizer, as well as a potential replacement in case that organizer declines. The selection criteria will take into account scientific quality, impact, and diversity.
For Bernoulli Society sessions specifically, an effort will be made to strike a proper balance between statistics and probability in light of the typical composition of the body of WSC attendees. The post is funded for 36 months, starting 1 July, or by agreement. Opening: Martin Wainwright. Forum: Mark Girolami.

S7 Table. Similarly, 11 genes were negatively regulated by XibR but activated by low-iron condition Fig 3B. S8 Table. These included 13 iron uptake and metabolism related genes, 4 pathogenicity associated genes, 14 secretion components and effectors, 14 flagellar and motility related genes, 4 attachment associated genes, 10 chemotaxis related genes and 18 two component systems associated genes, respectively Fig 3B ; S3 Table.
Similarly, we also identified genes which were repressed by XibR but not influenced by low-iron condition Fig 3B ; S4 Table. Analysis of our microarray data indicated that several genes related to iron storage ferritin-like proteins , putative outer membrane receptor for ferric iron uptake fhuE and putative TonB dependent receptors were positively regulated by XibR S3 Table ; S9 Table.

We next performed streptonigrin sensitivity assay, which depends on the intracellular iron levels, to assess intracellular iron content in different strains of Xcc [ 13 , 32 ]. In order to examine this, we made three deletion strains; 1. S9I Fig. It has been reported that Xanthomonas oryzae pv. Interestingly, the wild-type Xcc strain grown under low-iron condition exhibited significantly higher RCR in response to xylose and glutamic acid, compared to those grown in PS medium.
Next we wanted to examine whether low-iron condition promotes motility in Xcc. E Motility zone diameter quantification from semisolid swim plate motility assay.
G Bacterial velocity measurement from the live cell imaging of bacterial movement at single cell level by using manual tracking and chemotaxis tools with ImageJ software. The stained cells were loaded into a chamber of sterile glass bottom plates containing PS medium with 0. Values are mean of at least 25 bacteria up to 20 frames. The experiment was repeated three times. Error bars are SEM. A Schematic representation of ChIP-qPCR primer locations indicated by arrows relative to the transcriptional start sites of mot , flg , and xss operons. Specific binding is indicated by a loss of XibR binding to the radiolabelled probe in the presence of excess of cold probe indicated by CP.
In the presence of a nonspecific probe negative control , XibR did not exhibit binding. Y-axis indicates molar ellipticity. Further, we performed quantification of bacterial cells attached to polystyrene culture plates after 24 hours of inoculation by crystal violet CV staining, as described previously [ 34 ]. We identified a homolog of previously reported E. However, there was no significant difference under low-iron condition compared to the PS medium Fig 6E. B Quantification of attached cells of different Xcc strains in the static biofilm after 24 hours of growth.

Attached cells were stained with Crystal Violet CV , dissolved in ethanol and quantified by measuring absorbance at nm. Each 3D image represents the layer in the Z-stack.
D Average biofilm thickness of different strains of Xcc formed on the glass slide at the air-media interphase. Our expression analysis indicated that XibR is involved in the regulation of mot , flg , and xss operons. DNA-protein cross-linking was done by formaldehyde treatment to bacterial cells followed by immunoprecipitation of XibR from lysates using anti-HA antibodies by a sandwich technique see Materials and Methods. Interestingly, XibR exhibited significant binding to xss promoter only under iron-replete condition Fig 7D. Since under aerobic conditions, ferrous iron is oxidized to ferric form of iron, and to rule out the possibility that the increased binding of XibR exhibited in the presence of ferrous iron may be due to conversion to ferric form, we added ferric specific chelator deferoxamine mesylate in the binding buffer.
Sequence analysis of bp upstream region of all the XibR regulated genes identified in the microarray experiment indicated that Furthermore, we performed circular dichroism CD spectroscopy to detect possible structural changes in XibR in the presence of ferric iron. For infection studies, day old cabbage leaves were inoculated with bacterial cell suspension by leaf clip method and monitored the lesion development, bacterial growth and migration inside the leaves Fig 8.
A Infected cabbage leaves with different Xcc strain showing symptoms as a lesion at 15 days postinoculation. Bacterial populations were measured by crushing the leaves of 1cm 2 areas for each and serial dilution plating at the indicated post inoculation days. C In planta bacterial migration assay was performed by inoculating 1cm pieces of infected leave, cut from base to tip with sterile scissors on rich PS medium with respective antibiotics.
Migration was estimated by observing colonies formed after 1 to 3 days by the bacterial ooze from the cut ends of cabbage leaf pieces. D Quantification of lesion length at 15 days post inoculation. Ability of the bacterial pathogen to respond and adapt to iron limiting condition inside host is essential to their virulence.
Pathogenic bacteria utilize diverse and efficient iron uptake systems that enable them to scavenge various forms of iron from the environment under iron-restricted conditions. Due to essentiality of iron in bacterial growth and survival particularly in iron limiting environment and also the potential toxic effect due to iron overload, bacteria tightly regulate iron uptake, metabolism and distribution in response to environmental cues mediated by iron dependent regulators such as Fur and DtxR [ 4 , 7 , 9 ].
Fur and Fur-like homologs play an important role in regulating iron metabolism and virulence in many Gram-negative bacteria. Fur also has been shown to act as an activator of virulence associated factors in bacterial pathogens such as Neisseria meningitidis , Salmonella typhimurium and Helicobacter pylori [ 9 ]. However, apart from Fur and DtxR type ferrous binding regulators, little is known about how iron regulated genes and virulence associated functions are fine-tuned and coordinately regulated by other iron responsive regulatory proteins.
In this study we showed that a novel NtrC family of response regulator, XibR binds to ferric form of iron and regulates the expression of several iron metabolism and virulence associated functions in important phytopathogen Xanthomonas campestris pv. To our knowledge iron-responsive ferric binding regulator has not been reported in any bacteria.
