Summary of Meeting:
Far from being a single process, genome maintenance involves the integration of multiple DNA damage repair and signaling pathways that are deeply influenced by cell cycle progression, chromatin composition, gene transcription, genome organization and the differentiation state of the cell. Preservation of genomic integrity is of paramount importance for cellular homeostasis, organismal development and tumor suppression. Accordingly, defects in the pathways that signal and repair DNA damage cause pathologies that include cancer, neurological disorders, premature aging and immunodeficiency. Our understanding of genome maintenance in the context of the multitude of intracellular transactions remains woefully incomplete and topic sessions addressing this issue will comprise a major theme of the conference. The program uniquely connects fields that otherwise rarely meet on a single occasion and will cover genome stability, development, disease, telomere biology and stem cell function. The meeting will highlight the latest trends including how genomic technologies have revolutionized our view of genome integrity and led to the discovery of new types of genome rearrangements whose mechanistic underpinnings remain largely unknown. The unusually broad scope of the conference will bring together scientists operating at the leading edge of multiple disciplines ranging from basic cell biology to pre-clinical oncology. Interactions between junior and seasoned investigators, as well as interdisciplinary contacts, will be fostered through poster presentations, workshops and plenary sessions, some of which are shared with the concurrent Keystone Symposia meeting on DNA Replication and Recombination, which will focus on the highly complementary theme of repair in the setting of DNA replication.

Workshop 1: DNA Repair and Genome Editing
The aim of this workshop is to cross-fertilize the fields of genome editing and DNA double-strand break repair. Indeed, genome editing harnesses the property of designer nucleases to generate breaks that are either mis-repaired (by canonical or alternative end-joining pathways) or that serve as substrate for homology-dependent repair. Conversely, genome editing nucleases can be used as tools to study the repair and response to DNA double-strand breaks. Furthermore, by their ability to label specific genomic loci, genome editing techniques enable dynamic imaging of repair processes directly in living cells with unprecedented spatial and temporal resolution. By fostering interaction between these two fields, we hope to improve the efficiency and applicability of genome editing applications based on a better understanding of DNA double-strand break repair.
