Bacterial Chromosomes
Organizer(s): Susan Gottesman, Nancy E. Kleckner and John R. Roth
Date: February 07 - 12, 2004
Location: Eldorado Hotel & Spa, Santa Fe, NM, USA
Sponsored in part by the Director's Sponsor Fund
Summary of Meeting:
Upon completion of this conference, participants should be able to: - Promote understanding of current research on bacterial chromosome replication, recombination, partition and expression. - Make use of genomic sequence and expression information to develop an integrated view of how chromosome information is decoded under different conditions. - Incorporate detailed information on the mechanism of genome replication, recombination and transposition with physiological and regulatory data from in vivo studies. - Interpret data from methods for direct visualization of chromosome behavior in living cells, as well as in depth genetic analysis to understand chromosome segregation. - Develop an understanding of how replication and chromosome repair are integrated. - Integrate newly available structural information with in vivo and in vitro studies of function. - Develop an understanding of how chromosome segregation is linked to replication and cell division signals to allow accurate chromosome partition. - Uncover novel interrelationships among chromosomal functions and new approaches to study of the bacterial chromosome as a result of the justaposition of diverse topics. - Understand both the highly conserved and highly diverse approaches taken by different bacteria to achieve proper chromosome maintenance, evolution and expression.
