Regulation of Eukaryotic Transcription: From Chromatin to mRNA
Organizer(s): James A. Goodrich, Laszlo Tora and Karolin Luger
Date: April 21 - 26, 2006
Location: Sagebrush Inn & Suites, Taos, NM, USA
Supported by The Director's Fund
Summary of Meeting:
This meeting will encompass the most exciting current research on eukaryotic mRNA transcription and its regulation. Sessions will address the following pivotal topics in the field: how chromatin and its modification actively sets levels of gene-specific transcription; promoter recognition complexes and their function in directing transcription initiation; the structure and organization of large macromolecular transcription complexes as revealed by X-ray crystallography and electron microscopy; transcriptional coregulatory complexes and their roles as mediators of transcriptional regulation during differentiation and development; the steps in the transcript synthesis reaction; and the application of emerging imaging techniques to the real time analysis of transcription in living cells. The goals of this meeting are to report the most recent progress on these topics, as well as to provide an understanding of both detailed transcriptional regulatory mechanisms and how transcriptional regulation integrates with other cellular and developmental processes.
