Chromatin and epigenetic gene regulation (e.g. higher order chromatin folding, chromatin enhancer regulation, dynamics of chromatin, nuclear organization and epigenomics) and its impact on cancer development and treatment will be discussed from a multidisciplinary angle. This provides a platform to interact with scientists from different disciplines (computational biologists, experimentalists, biomedical and clinical researchers). We have an excellent line-up of invited speakers (see below). Abstracts for oral and poster presentations can still be submitted until October 14. Part of the conference is dedicated to workshops of special interest for PhD students and postdocs. We can provide a certificate of participation on request.
