Transcription, Chromatin, and Epigenetics
Date & Location
Date: September 16-21, 2018
Location: Hilton Metropole Florence, Via del Cavallaccio, 36, Florence, 50142, Italy
This FASEB SRC is designed to highlight the major advances in science and integrate different topics, which are part of an extremely fast-moving and exciting field of research. The biological scope and the mechanisms of action of DNA and RNA molecules, which have roles in dosage compensation, imprinting, enhancer function and transcriptional regulation, have a great impact in health and diseases, including aging and cancer.
A key reason for the increasing interest in chromatin and transcription is the appreciation that regulation of chromatin organization and transcription is the fundamental cornerstone for establishing gene expression patterns that determine cell state and fate. Researchers studying embryonic stem cells, organism development, diseases (e.g. cancer) have discovered a common interest in elucidating the mechanisms that govern gene expression. Moreover, there has been a recent explosion of activity in the fields of RNA epigenetics and non-coding RNAs, which have become integral parts of the field of gene expression. This five-day conference will gather confirmed and junior scientists from academia, biotech, pharma and clinical settings to share ideas and concepts, and create synergy in the following domains:
- transcription and chromatin in gene regulation,
- chromatin complexes,
- DNA and RNA modifications,
- non-coding RNAs,
- stem cells, aging and cancer.
