Transcriptional Regulation by Chromatin and RNA Polymerase


September 26-30, 2024

The sphere of transcription biology has been found to connect via shared biochemistry with the spheres of chromatin biology and epigenetics. RNA polymerase II and its transcription machinery play an essential role in chromatin's modification and remodeling; chromatin regulates gene expression in both normal and pathological conditions. 

With recent innovations and technological advances in clinical and preclinical research, personalized medicine is becoming a reality, partly because of advances in understanding RNA polymerase II. Given this fact, many established and new investigators have taken on the challenge of elucidating the molecular mechanisms of gene expression by RNA polymerase II in the context of chromatin. 

The community is highly dynamic and multi-disciplinary, with an ever-changing set of focal areas that establish new paradigms and new ways of thinking about the topic. Even after decades of study, this research area continues to advance, reveal new concepts, and bolster almost every other area of biology.

This conference has been offered every other year since 2006 and has established a reputation as one of the premier meetings in the fields of transcription and chromatin biology. The format promotes interactions among established investigators, junior faculty, and trainees. It provides a great avenue for junior investigators to present their data either orally or in a poster format.
