Coronavirus information for participants

The onsite course and conference programme at EMBL has been paused until the end of June 2020.

We aim to continue offering our advanced training for the scientific community however we safely can. While some events have been cancelled, many have been rescheduled for a later date and others will be delivered as virtual events.

Registration is open for onsite courses and conferences starting after 1 July and for the virtual events. All registration fees for any events which don’t take place due to the COVID-19 disruption are fully refundable.

More information for participants of events at EMBL Heidelberg can be found here.

The list of posters, the onsite logistic information booklet and the conference bus schedule are now available for download. 

Symposium Overview

This interdisciplinary symposium will highlight exciting new insights into the molecular principles that govern the functional framework of genomes in space and time. The meeting program will cover all levels of organisational complexity, from DNA to chromosomes, and in model systems ranging from bacteria to humans. This symposium will bring together scientists from different disciplines working at the forefront of chromosome biology to discuss the most recent advances in the field. A particular highlight will be the integration of discoveries made in different disciplines, including cell and molecular biology, biophysics, modelling, structural biology and biochemistry. By combining efforts from biology, physics and chemistry, the programme will open new horizons for future research in this exciting area of the life sciences.
