Multiscale Modeling of Chromatin: Bridging Experiment with Theory - Les Houches 2019

Dear Colleagues,

It is with pleasure that we invite you to attend theMultiscale Modeling of Chromatin: Bridging Experiment with Theorythematic meeting, which will be held in Les Houches, France, March 31-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.

Visit the website for theprogram overviewandlist of speakers.We encourage you to share this information with colleagues who may be interested in attending.

The deadline tosubmit an abstractand toregisterfor the meeting is December 1, 2018. Registration rates for the meeting include registration, shared sleeping room, and meals for 5 days.

We look forward to seeing you in Les Houches.
