The Biology and Physics of Bacterial Chromosome Organisation 2018
A Biochemical Society Scientific Meeting
4-6 June, 2018, Golden Tulip, Leiden, The Netherlands
In the recent years, collaborations between biologists and physicists have generated key discoveries regarding our understanding of bacterial chromosome structure. New approaches and technologies have revolutionized the field of bacterial chromosome biology in the last fifteen years. For example, super-resolution microscopy is now being used to visualize previously unresolved structure, genomic tools have enabled the capture of new types of proximity information on a genomic-scale and polymer physics models allow researchers to tackle questions that go far beyond the traditional biological description of chromosome structure. This conference will recognize the role of inter-disciplinary work and foster new collaborations and ideas.
The Biochemical Society is pleased to offer the discounted members rate for NVBMB members to attend this meeting.
