2nd Spatial Genome Organization Conference

Conference information

Synopsis

The conference will bring together scientists working to better understand three-dimensional genome organization in various organisms, tissues, and cell state.

Key Sessions 

  • Nuclear and subnuclear structure and function
  • Topogically Associated Domains (TADs) and transcription in genome control
  • Signalling cues, cellular states and genome organization
  • Genome dynamics in DNA repair
  • Genome structure in health, aging, and disease
  • Chromatin loops and non-canonical nucleic acids structures in genome expression and stability
  • Workshop I: Technical advances
  • Workshop II: How to publish in the era of spatial genome organization?
     

Target Audience

This conference is of interest to individuals seeking to understand the basic principles of spatial genome organization and how the disruption of this organization impacts health and disease. Those interested in learning or developing new technologies that help reveal more of the secrets of spatial genome organization should both benefit from and greatly enrich the conference. Attendees are expected to have a background in the basics of genetics, nuclear organization, microscopy, and sequencing.

Educational Need

This conference also provides a unique opportunity for trainees interested in spatial genome organization to learn about the latest findings in this rapidly growing area of research from both established and emerging leaders in the field. In addition, the conference provides numerous scientific and social networking opportunities for trainees to discuss their research activities and career plans with others in the field.
