Regulation from a distance: long-range control of gene expression in development and disease
The correct regulation of gene expression underpins normal development and differentiation, and is frequently perturbed in disease. Whilst events controlling transcription around gene promoters are well understood, how far-distant enhancers direct spatial and temporal control of transcription is less clear. Our aim is to integrate experimental and computational approaches, in multiple model systems, to define the mechanisms of enhancer action. This meeting will bring together experts in the field to discuss their research, ideas and key challenges for the future. Attendance at this meeting is free but online registration is required.
