Epigenetics, Chromatin, Development and Disease
joint with Chromatin Architecture in Development and Human Health
Scientific Organizers: Shelley L. Berger, Geneviève Almouzni and Luciano Di Croce
Date: February 21 - 25, 2021
Location: Fairmont Banff Springs, Banff, AB, Canada
Mechanisms underlying nucleosome- and chromatin-based functional control of genomes are studied increasingly broadly across biological systems. The research in this field impacts and informs basic biology and has translational importance in human disease. This meeting will encompass broad themes of chromatin mechanisms, including DNA and RNA modifications, histone modifications, ATP-dependent nucleosome remodeling complexes, histone variants, chaperones and others, as they intersect with cell identity, cellular and transgenerational memory, with genome function, with nuclear structure, and with biological questions/disease. The topics will also involve new emerging technologies and computational approaches to study chromatin and nucleosome structure, function and genomic location. We expect strong interest in this meeting along with the joint meeting in 3D genomics.
Registration for this meeting is not open yet, it will open later in January 2020
