Transcriptional Regulation

Chromatin and RNA Polymerase II

Transcriptional regulation: Chromatin and RNA polymerase II
Sept. 29 – Oct. 2, 2022 | Snowbird, Utah

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.

What is Snowbird's elevation?

Snowbird’s base elevation, at the Snowbird Center, is 8,100 feet. Snowbird’s highest point is at Hidden Peak, where the tram docks — a whopping 11,000 feet.

Some tips for acclimating to the higher elevation: stay hydrated, consume foods rich in potassium, limit salt intake and give yourself a break from strenuous exercise until you've had a chance to adjust.
