Chromosome Dynamics

An international symposium on chromatin and chromosome stability

December 8-10, 2019

This meeting is organized in honor of the 150th anniversary of the discovery of nucleic acids as a major constitutent of the cell nucleus. In 1869 the Basler biochemist Friedrich Miescher determined its chemical composition and named the substance "Nuklein", at a time when most scientists assumed that cells were made up only of proteins. All aspects of modern day chromosome biology will be presented and discussed at this conference.

Friedrich Miescher Institute for Biomedical Research
Maulbeerstrasse 66
Basel | Switzerland

Topics presented:
DNA replication and repair
Transcriptional regulation
Nuclear organization and chromatin folding
Chromatin in early development
Mathematical modeling of chromatin
Quantitative imaging
Structural biology of nucleosomes
