Organizers

Dylan Taatjes
University of Colorado, Boulder

Yan Jessie Zhang
University of Texas at Austin
 

Sessions will cover recent advances and new technologies in RNA polymerase II regulation, including the contributions of non-coding RNAs, enhancers and promoters, chromatin structure and post-translational modifications, molecular condensates, and other factors that regulate gene expression. Dr. Patrick Cramer of the Max Planck Institute will present the keynote address on the structure and function of transcription regulatory complexes. 

The meeting is highly interactive and collaborative. Attendees will include principal investigators, postdoctoral fellows, students, and scientists from the pharmaceutical and biotech industries. Students and postdoctoral fellows are especially encouraged to attend and will be eligible for poster awards. Poster award winners will be given an opportunity to present their work as a short talk toward the end of the meeting.
