DNA Replication and Recombination
Organizer(s): Peter M. Burgers, Lorraine S. Symington and Johannes Walter
Date: February 27 - March 04, 2011
Location: Keystone Resort, Keystone, CO, USA
Supported by the Directors' Fund
Summary of Meeting:
As the pathways that govern DNA replication and DNA recombination are better defined, there is exciting progress in our understanding of the basic mechanisms of these processes. There is also growing evidence that replication and recombination are intimately connected in order to resolve problems arising during DNA replication, and to define outcomes with respect to chromosome integrity. This meeting will integrate mechanistic insights from biochemical studies with cellular pathways that control DNA replication initiation and progression, DNA recombination, and responses to DNA damage. Specific plenary sessions will focus on DNA replication mechanisms in prokaryotes and eukaryotes. Recombination sessions will present progress in our understanding of the mechanisms underlying mitotic recombination, and on recombination-based responses to replication stress and DNA damage. Sessions will also address cell cycle checkpoint and chromatin structural responses to DNA damage. The plenary sessions will be conducted by invited speakers and speakers selected from submitted abstracts. In addition, four related workshops will be conducted, with short talks selected from submitted abstracts.
