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.


Venue:
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
