The Biology and Physics of Bacterial Chromosome Organisation 2018

June, 2018

Leiden, The Netherlands



A Biochemical Society Focused Meeting


Earlybird Registration deadline: TBC


Abstract Submission deadline: TBC

 

In the recent years, collaborations between biologists and physicists have generated key discoveries regarding our understanding of bacterial chromosome structure. This conference will recognize the role of inter-disciplinary work and foster new collaborations and ideas. 

 

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. 

 

 

Topics in this meeting may be invited to submit to our journal, Biochemical Society Transactions, or other publication published by Portland Press, the wholly-owned trading subsidiary of the Biochemical Society.

 

 

Oral communication slots are available at this meeting. All attendees, particularly researchers in the early stages of their career, are invited to submit a poster abstract for consideration as an oral communication.

 

Student Bursaries are available for this meeting.
