General information

Genomic Regulation 2018 is intended to provide a forum to discuss recent advances in the field of regulation of transcription in the living organisms. We will gather scientists working in both bioinformatics and experimental biology, addressing diverse aspects of transcriptional regulation in normal and pathological conditions. This symposium will allow for fruitful scientific discussions and exchange of ideas. Sharing recent discoveries among high profile scientists will advance our understanding of the mechanisms of gene expression regulation, convey new concepts and result in novel international collaborations.
