The DNA of eukaryotic cells is organized into chromatin fibres, 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 on 'Epigenetics: from mechanisms to disease' will bring together scientists studying chromatin architecture, epigenetics, stem cell biology and cancer. The talks will cover a broad range of topics, including chromosome organisation, long-range interactions, chromatin assembly, stem cell regulation/differentiation, RNA-based mechanisms, transcription regulation, DNA methylation and hydroxymethylation.
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. The program has also allocated ample time for exchanging ideas and discussing novel hypotheses at the end of each session, as well as time for informal interactions and networking.
