Transcriptional Regulation in Evolution, Development, and Disease

The precise regulation of gene expression is necessary for organismal development, and changes in gene expression regulation underlie many evolutionary adaptations. Defective transcriptional regulation can lead to developmental disorders and disease. Through the combination of novel new technologies, genetics, evolutionary biology, biochemistry, and molecular, cell, and computational biology, many layers of transcriptional regulation have been uncovered and dissected. This meeting will address several of these areas, including basic transcriptional control, enhancer structure and function, chromatin packaging, epigenetics, and phase separation.

We hope you can join us in Chicago, where we will bring together researchers in these various fields to hear the latest results that contribute to our understanding of the molecular mechanisms of transcriptional regulation and how these processes have evolved and contribute to development and disease.

We hope to see you there!

Topics include:

Enhancer Structure and Function
Chromatin Packaging
Epigenetics
Evolution and Development
Single Cell Technology
Transcriptional Regulation and Disease

This meeting will feature recent technological and conceptual advances in studying the higher order chromatin organization in eukaryotic cells. The 4DN network was launched in 2015 to develop and apply approaches to map chromatin structure and dynamics to gain a deeper mechanistic understanding of how the nucleus is functionally organized. The ASCB is an international community of over 9000 scientists studying the biology of the cell. The 2019 4DN-ASCB Satellite Meeting aims to highlight rapid progress in the study of genome organization and facilitate the dissemination of new technologies and concepts to the broader cell biology community.

The 2020 Keystone Symposia Cancer Epigenetics: New Mechanisms and Therapeutic Opportunities in conjunction with the joint conference, Gene Regulation: From Mechanisms to Disease, co-organized by Karen Adelman and Patrick Cramer, will highlight state-of-the art advances in methods, mechanistic insights, and drug discovery efforts across these interrelated fields. Furthermore, results from exome- and genome-wide sequencing efforts point toward major roles for chromatin regulatory machinery in cancer. These data emphasize the immediate need for mechanistic understanding and, in parallel, the identification of novel strategies toward therapeutic targeting for this class of cancer drivers. This conference will help to foster interactions and new connections between basic biologists focused on chromatin architecture, structure, and function with translational biologists focused on model systems for mechanistic interrogation. Participants will attend sessions that will feature the presentation of new methods and techniques in systems biology, imaging, genomics, and drug discovery approaches. Other topics will explore the roles for enhancer structure, genome organization and topology on DNA accessibility and gene expression. Finally, this conference will expose trainees across a wide range of international, interdisciplinary laboratories to cutting edge science in cancer epigenetics and related fields, hoping to further their interests and commitment to this area of biologic research The concurrent joint conference on "Gene Regulation: From Mechanisms to Disease" is another unique, one-of-a-kind aspect of this conference, allowing participants to attend talks in their interest areas across two closely-related disciplines. Our cancer-centered audience will have an opportunity to attend select talks as well as two joint sessions, which all the organizers have carefully considered and designed together.
