  • Keystone Symposia: 3D Genome - Gene Regulation and Disease

    Sunday 17 March 2019 - Thursday 21 March 2019

    Location  Banff, Alberta, Canada

    Scholarship and Discounted Abstract Deadline: November 15, 2018!
    Transcription of the eukaryotic genome is not only driven by the cis regulatory elements embedded in the linear DNA sequence but also by the way chromosomes fold in the three-dimensional (3D) nuclear space. Growing evidence has pointed to a key role of the 3D genome architecture in gene regulation and human disease; however, the details of dynamic chromatin organization in different cell types remain opaque. Additionally, how chromatin organization shapes the gene regulatory program and influence disease pathogenesis has not been fully elucidated. The major objective of this conference is to accelerate the study of 3D genome organization; particularly with regard to gene regulation and human disease. The program will highlight recent technological advances, such as omics-based and imaging-based technologies, as well as discuss emerging concepts of chromatin organization and its role in cancer and other human diseases. Finally, the conference program will provide workshops and tutorials on the latest computational tools and data resources for 3D genome analysis. Because epigenetic processes such as chromatin remodeling and DNA methylation are intimately linked to the 3D genome architecture, this conference is jointly held with the Keystone conference on “Epigenetics and Human disease,” further contributing to the goal of stimulating cross-disciplinary interactions among researchers from the genomics, epigenomics, computational biology, cell biology and molecular biology fields.

  • Keystone Symposia: Epigenetics and Human Disease

    Epigenetics is a major mechanism in human health and disease. Data from a range of diseases (cancer, neurological and immunological disorders) have uncovered altered epigenomes arising from mutations, altered expression and/or copy number alterations of numerous epigenetic factors (histones, DNA and chromatin modifying enzymes, reader proteins, chromatin modulators and noncoding RNAs). Genome-wide analyses have illustrated the relationship between altered epigenetic states (e.g., modified DNA, histones and chromatin packaging) and disease onset and progression. Furthermore, both local and long-range nuclear chromatin architecture are increasingly recognized as major contributors to normal and pathologic epigenetic states. This conference, held jointly with the “3D Genome” conference, will cover the most current knowledge of epigenetic events modulating nuclear function (gene expression regulation, enhancer modulation, domains and structural organization as well as cell division and differentiation), while relating this to normal and disease models. In addition, this conference will highlight the impact that preclinical and clinical epigenetic therapeutics have on multiple diseases including cancer and immunological and neurological disorders. An interdisciplinary panel of speakers encompasses both thought leaders in the field as well as young investigators to survey the latest research results and conceptual understanding of fundamental mechanisms of epigenetic signaling, especially as it relates to regulation of gene expression programs. Presentations and workshops will highlight the latest technologies and methodologies for studying epigenetic states and 3D chromatin architecture in cells, tissues and organisms.

  • EMBO Workshop: Chromatin and Epigenetics

    Wednesday 01 May 2019 - Saturday 04 May 2019

    Epigenetics refers to heritable change in gene expression that does not involve changes to the underlying DNA sequence. At least three systems including DNA methylation, histone modifications and non-coding RNAs (ncRNA) are considered to play fundamental roles in epigenetic regulation. Research over the last two decades has uncovered the role of epigenetics in a variety of human disorders and fatal diseases. Moreover influence of age, environment, lifestyle, and disease state on epigenetic states is being increasingly appreciated and actively studied.

    Cancer is a disease in which cells grow abnormally and have the potential to spread to different parts. The abnormal growths without being harmful are called the benign tumors or the non-cancerous growths. Those cells which divide uncontrollably and spread to the nearby tissues are called the malignant tumors or the cancerous growths. The spread form the primary site (the place it originated) to the secondary site is called metastasis. The causative agents of cancer are called carcinogens. There are different types of cancers named based on their origin of development. These days many advancements have come in the field of cancer starting from diagnosis, treatment and prevention.
    Cancer Therapy 2019 conference is aiming to fulfil the thirst of research minds with its keynote sessions of eminent professionals, oral and poster presentations from young minds and innovative scholars. We hope to provide you a valuable time and opportunity to meet and interact with professionals and researchers from all through the globe.
