3D Genomics Symposium
Conference Agenda
Funded by Beijing National Research Center for Information Science and Technology (BNRist)
The 6th International Symposium on 3D Genomics Two-meter DNA is spooled around proteins, compacted 200,000-fold into the several-micrometer nucleus. Linearly distant DNA regions can become interacting neighbors, leading parts of the genome to be transcribed into messenger RNA. Therefore, Three-dimensional structure of chromatin can be both a cause and consequence of gene regulation. During the last decade, numerous novel methods emerged rapidly, to explore How the information in the nucleus organized, stored, packed and unpackaged. The knowledge about the chromosomal conformation is important to basic human health. The changes in 3D structure of chromatin can lead to the development of different diseases, such as cancer or our response to infectious agents like viruses. The 6th International Symposium on 3D Genomics will be held at Tsinghua University from October 10th-12th, 2019. Cutting-edge techniques and molecular mechanisms related to three-dimensional genomics will be discussed, to promote the research in the field. You are welcome to attend. Main Topics 1) Three-dimensional genome mapping technology 2) Three-dimensional genome informatics 3) Three-dimensional genome organization and functions 4) Transcriptional regulation in three-dimensional genome 5) Development & disease in 3D genome. 6) Plant 3D genome Time and Date Check-in:October 10, 13:00-23:30 Duration:October 11-12
