Chromosome Territories and Nuclear Architecture

More 'Chromosome Territories and Nuclear Architecture'

Joint Symposium of the Leopoldina and the Institute of Molecular Biology (IMB)

Date: Wednesday, 30. October to Friday, 1. November 2019
Time: 12:00 to 19:15
Location: Institute of Molecular Biology gGmbH, Ackermannweg 4, 55128 Mainz

A fundamental property of genomes is their topological organisation in the 3D space of the cell nucleus. Methodological advances in microscopy and genomics have paved new ways for studying the genome architecture at unprecedented spatial resolution. Emerging evidence has uncovered basic principles of genome organisation and pointed to its key roles in gene expression, genome maintenance and human disease, yet, the genome structure-to-function relationship remains elusive.

This three-day conference will bring together experts focusing on: (1) the mechanistic basis of chromatin interactions and structure, (2) the recent advances in modeling chromosome organization and dynamics, and (3) the contribution of nuclear organisation in health and disease.

The symposium is co-sponsored by the Leopoldina.
