11th EMBL Conference: Transcription and Chromatin
23 Aug 2014 - 26 Aug 2014 - Heidelberg, Germany
This meeting has long helped shape the field of transcriptional regulation, and the excellent line up of speakers makes this a ‘must’ for anyone interested in cutting edge transcription research.
The EMBL Transcription and Chromatin meeting has a long-standing tradition in shaping the field of transcriptional regulation. The meeting brings together leading experts covering all aspects of transcription from cis-regulatory function, long range regulation, 3-dimensional looping, the basal transcriptional machinery, RNA polymerase regulation and function, nucleosome positioning, chromatin modifications, chromatin remodelling, and epigenetic inheritance of transcriptional silencing.
The conference is designed to promote interactive discussions at both the talks and poster sessions. The excellent line up of speakers and the meeting’s outstanding reputation makes this a ‘must’ for anyone interested in cutting edge research in transcription.
