Joint Meeting: Chromatin Dynamics (J4)

Summary of Meeting:
Core processes of epigenetic inheritance include DNA methylation, histone modification, nucleosome remodeling, nuclear dynamics and chromatin interaction with non-coding RNAs. Although these processes are beginning to be understood at a mechanistic level, less is known of their dynamic nature within genomes. This meeting will highlight recent advances in the application of genomics techniques to the study of epigenetics. Research in a variety of model systems will be presented, which will highlight the conservation and divergence of patterns in different eukaryotic kingdoms. Session topics emphasize integration between epigenomic patterning and developmental regulation, as well as cross-talk between different epigenetic processes. This meeting will also highlight cutting-edge, high-throughput technology being developed and applied to understand epigenomes. Opportunities for interdisciplinary interactions will be significantly enhanced by the concurrent meeting on Chromatin Dynamics, which will share a keynote address and two plenary sessions with this meeting.
