2016 Special Symposia

Transcriptional Regulation: Chromatin and RNA Polymerase II
October 6 - 10, 2016, Snowbird, UT
The field of transcription biochemistry and molecular biology has become one with the field of chromatin biology and epigenetics; these two fields are basically inseparable. RNA polymerase II and its transcription machinery play an essential role in the modification and remodeling of chromatin; and chromatin plays a pivotal role in the regulation of gene expression by RNA polymerase II.
