Chromatin: from structure to epigenetics
Jun 26, 2012 - Jun 27, 2012
Event Type: Conference
Location: Strasbourg, France
Registration Deadline: Jun 25, 2012
Abstract Submission Deadline: Apr 30, 2012
Description of event:
This exciting 2-day conference will link chromatin
structure with epigenetics
. The aim is to use chromatin
structure and dynamics as foundations to understand epigenetics
. The first session will be devoted to structural aspects covering the main biochemical and biophysical aspects of chromatin
structure. The second session will "bridge" these two areas, and focus
on studies using chromatin
structure/dynamics to explain epigenetic phenomena. Session 3 will concentrate on epigenetic phenomena in vivo.
With this meeting we will build a bridge between chromatin structure and epigenetics - two key pillars of modern biology.
- Encourage plenty of discussions in a relaxed atmosphere. In particular initiate discussions about chromatin structure and dynamics as foundations for understanding epigenetics
- Provide a unique opportunity for students and post-docs to participate and present their own data
- Inspire new collaborations and investigations within this ever growing field of research
