This 2-day informal meeting is the 7th edition in the conference series «Chromatin Meets South». It is focused on fundamental aspects of chromatin biology and on the latest advances in the field. This meeting will bring together leading researchers from the South of France to explore outstanding questions in chromatin-related topics from experimental and theoretical perspectives, enable participants to identify new research opportunities and collaborations, and to allow PhD students to present their results in English to a large audience.
We welcome oral presentations from all areas relevant to chromatin research in different models.
Covered topics include
- chromatin structure and function
- gene expression
- genome stability
- cancer and epigenetics
- modeling and computational biology
Keynote Speaker: Giacomo Cavalli, Chromatin and Cell Biology Lab, IGH, Montpellier
