Gene Control in Development and Disease
joint with Chromatin Architecture and Chromosome Organization
Organizer(s): Richard A. Young, Joanna Wysocka and Phillip A. Sharp
Date: March 23 - 27, 2018
Location: Whistler Conference Centre, Whistler, BC, Canada
Sponsored by Novartis Institutes for BioMedical Research
Summary of Meeting:
Proper control of gene expression is important for all fundamental cellular and organismal processes. With advancements in technology and genetics, researchers are now able to use a combination of genetic, biochemical and computational methods to investigate gene control in healthy cells, as well as to discern what happens when these controls go awry in disease. Learning how gene expression programs are regulated is essential to understanding the control of cell state and its impact on disease development. Multiple levels of gene regulation including basic transcriptional controls, enhancers, epigenetics and the role of phase separation in transcriptional control will be addressed. The goal of this conference is to share new insights into gene control in health and disease and to discuss advances that are being made in disease therapy based on gene control therapeutics.
