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.
