Spatial Genome Organization Conference

The Nucleome in Basic Biology and Disease 25 February, 2019 - 28 February, 2019

Melia Nassau Beach Hotel, Nassau, Bahamas

General Information

The conference will bring together scientists interested in better characterizing the non-random organization of the genome while also revealing how this organization is influenced by various cues or disease conditions. Currently, these topics are typically addressed in a small session of other conferences however the field of spatial genome organization has grown substantially over the past two decades warranting the creation of a dedicated and continuous conference.

Join us alongside scientific chairs Karim Mekhail (University of Toronto) and Evi Soutoglou (IGBMC) at the Melia Nassau Beach Hotel, Bahamas from the 25 – 28 February 2019.

Conference sessions will include:

  • Structure and function of subnuclear domains
  • Topogically Associated Domains (TADs) and similar domains
  • Signalling cues, cellular states and genome organization
  • DNA damage and spatial genome organization
  • Genome structure in health and disease
  • Workshop I: Genome editing and super-resolution microscopy
  • Workshop II: Chromosome conformation capture, sequencing and databases
  • Workshop III: Young scientists in the era of spatial genome organization, how to get published?
