Summary of Meeting:
This meeting will bring together scientists studying the most fundamental aspects of DNA replication and recombination, the organization and regulation of these processes at the cellular and molecular level, and their links to human disease. The aim is to disseminate the latest progress in this area; provide young scientists with the opportunity to present their work in a short talk or poster format; discuss the challenges and opportunities in developing basic research knowledge for the treatment of disease, and discuss the relevance of emerging work in other fields to genome instability and replication stress. Through talks and specialized workshops led by leaders in the field, the meeting will cover single-molecule to cellular and genome-level studies, providing an integrated view of the relationship between DNA replication, recombination and genome instability.
