The Tri-national "transcription and chromatin club" is a half-day symposium that unites the chromatin, epigenetic, and transcription groups at Strasbourg (IGBMC), Freiburg (MPI), and Basel (FMI) on a bi-annual basis.

Besides external keynote speakers, PhD students and Postdocs will present near finished but unpublished work from groups of each of the institutes. With an informal but high quality character of the meeting we are aiming at fostering discussion and inspiring new collaborations within the Tri-rhena area.
