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!
