Meeting Agenda

Meeting Program Booklet

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 keynote speakers for this meeting are:

Clodagh O'Shea, Salk Institute
Job Dekker, University of Massachusetts
Bing Ren, University of California San Diego
Ana Pombo, Max-Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine
