Description

Conference Chairs: Robert Schneider (Max Planck Institute, Germany) and Maria Elena Torres-Padilla (IGBMC, Strasbourg)

Summary
This exciting 2-day conference will link chromatin structure with epigenetics. The aim is to use chromatin structure and dynamics as foundations to understand epigenetics. The first session will be devoted to structural aspects covering the main biochemical and biophysical aspects of chromatin structure. The second session will "bridge" these two areas, and focus on studies using chromatin structure/dynamics to explain epigenetic phenomena. Session 3 will concentrate on epigenetic phenomena in vivo.

With this meeting we will build a bridge between chromatin structure and epigenetics - two key pillars of modern biology.

Our aims:

  • Encourage plenty of discussions in a relaxed atmosphere. In particular initiate discussions about chromatin structure and dynamics as foundations for understanding epigenetics
  • Provide a unique opportunity for students and post-docs to participate and present their own data
  • Inspire new collaborations and investigations within this ever growing field of research
