Chromatin and Epigenetics
Organizer(s): Luciano Di Croce and Yang Shi
Date: March 20 - 24, 2016
Location: Whistler Conference Centre, Whistler, BC, Canada
Sponsored by Cell Research, Cell Signaling Technology, Inc., Constellation Pharmaceuticals, Incyte Corporation, Janssen R&D: Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson and Merck & Co., Inc.
Summary of Meeting:
The DNA of eukaryotic cells is organized into chromatin fibers, where the nucleosome is the basic repeating unit. Chromatin is thus at the core of fundamental processes such as gene regulation, stem cell fate determination and cancer. By and large, these topics have traditionally been covered by separated meetings. However, recent literature indicates that the boundaries among these various disciplines are becoming less clear. This meeting will bring together scientists studying chromatin structure, epigenetics, stem cell biology and cancer. The talks will cover a broad range of topics, including chromosome organization, long-range interactions, chromatin assembly, stem cell regulation/differentiation, RNA-based mechanisms and transcription regulation. Speakers have been selected to broadly reflect lessons learned from a variety of model organisms and experimental approaches. Young scientists will be able to present their work through a large number of short talks selected from submitted abstracts as well as through poster presentation. There will also be ample time for exchanging ideas and discussing novel hypothesis at the end of each session, as well as time for informal interactions and networking.
Scholarship Deadline: November 18 2015
Discounted Abstract Deadline: November 18 2015
