The interplay between epigenetic regulation and genome stability

Oct. 21–25, 2024
Wuhan, China

It is clear that epigenetic and chromatin states affect DNA replication and DNA repair, two key processes critical for maintaining genome integrity. However, most meetings on epigenetics and chromatin focus on transcription, while most meetings on genome integrity pay little attention to epigenetics and chromatin.

The goal of this conference is to bring together scientists who are interested in epigenetic regulation and genome integrity for discussion and interactions. 

The topics include:

  • Epigenetic regulation of genome replication
  • Dynamic epigenetic alterations maintaining genome stability
  • Chromatin-based epigenetic inheritance
  • The role of epigenetic alterations in cancer and aging

There will be seven platform sessions devoted to oral presentations and two poster sessions. In addition to presentations from two keynote speakers and 30 invited speakers, there will be 14 short talks chosen from the abstracts submitted.

This conference is also meant to promote interactions between members of the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology and the Biophysical Society of China.
