Multiscale Modeling of Chromatin: Bridging Experiment with Theory

March 31, 2019 - April 5, 2019
This meeting will bring together biologists, chemists, physicists, and mathematicians to discuss and launch collaborations to advance the field of chromatin modeling and applications through new conceptual approaches and perspectives. The meeting will emphasize the unique multiscale features and properties of chromatin, from DNA to nuclear organiza­tion and interactions, and will encourage/enhance the devel­opment of multiscale models and experimental strategies needed to address all relevant components of the chromatin folding problem. Such multiscale approaches, combining ex­perimental data and modeling/informatics, are necessary to extract and identify structure/function relationships on vari­ous scales, from individual base pairs to whole genomes, and to pursue important applications in epigenetics and medicine.
Session organized by:
