EMBL Courses and Conferences during the Coronavirus pandemic
With the onsite programme paused, many of our events are now being offered in virtual formats.
Registration is open as usual for many events, with back-up plans in place to move further courses and conferences online as necessary. Registration fees for any events affected by the COVID-19 disruption are fully refundable.
More information for participants of events at EMBL Heidelberg can be found here.
In an effort to prioritise our participants’ health while still promoting scientific exchange, we are hosting this event as a virtual meeting. This includes live streamed oral presentations from invited speakers, digital poster sessions and online group discussions.
We will discuss the principles that govern the three-dimensional folding of the genome in chromosomes and inside the nucleus. Our understanding of how this organisation controls genome function and how it changes over time, both in the context of the cell cycle and in the course of normal development is incomplete. Currently, the study of the spatial organisation of the genome is being revolutionised by new genomics and microscopy techniques. The computational analysis and modelling of such data are delivering new insights into genome structure and function.
This symposium will bring together latest advances in the fields of genomics, microscopy and modelling to foster their integration towards a comprehensive spatial and temporal understanding of the functional four-dimensional organisation of the eukaryotic genome.
