16nov8:50 am6:00 pmEnhancers, Gene Regulation and Genome Organization meeting.


Event Details


The goal of this meeting is to critically address the wealth of new data generated by bulk and single-cell molecular, imaging and computational approaches that are increasingly revealing how the genome folds to faithfully accommodate gene expression programs and cell fate decisions. The goal is also to advance an understanding of how transcriptional enhancers function, how to separate cause and effect, and to identify critical questions that will guide future research directions.

We are inviting current thought leaders in the field from the U.S. and Europe in order to promote intellectual discourse among colleagues on this subject. We anticipate a highly stimulating and interactive meeting and a published report to follow.

Sessions Include:

• Enhancer genetics.
• Enhancers in development.
• Enhancer biophysics.
• Enhancer in disease.
• Enhancers and ncRNA.

Registration is required in order to receive the WebEx link.
