Chromatin is a long polymer in which the genetic code is intricately arranged in 4D (space and time). Beyond the DNA sequence, the epigenetic state and 3D organization of chromatin dictate the gene regulation in a spatio-temporal manner.

The study of chromatin is at a juncture where recent advances in genomics, high-resolution microscopy, and single-cell level measurements have made it possible to understand the underlying principles behind this complex organization and gene regulation.

Integrating this diverse information into a coherent understanding requires multi-disciplinary expertise, and this meeting aims to facilitate such cross-talks between specialists from different fields. Discussions during the meeting on novel experimental observations and phenomenology, along with physical principles and data-driven methods, are expected to benefit the diverse community interested in chromatin.

The first week will be a pedagogical workshop that will cover diverse experimental and theoretical topics in chromatin organization and gene regulation. There will be hands-on sessions in the computational modeling of chromatin. The second week will be a scientific meeting with research talks.

ICTS is committed to building an environment that is inclusive, non-discriminatory and welcoming of diverse individuals. We especially encourage the participation of women and other under-represented groups.
