Bethesda, MD This 2014 FASEB Science Research Conference focuses on recent advances in our understanding of the molecular mechanisms that control genome integrity and cell division. Studies using yeast as model organisms continue to drive the development of innovative approaches and powerful new technologies that ensure a rapid pace of fundamental discoveries in these research areas and provide insights into these mechanisms in higher eukaryotes.
Presentations of unpublished data and stimulating informal discussions lead to the dissemination of new concepts, integration of research ideas, propel the generation of creative new ideas, and fuel the development of new collaborations. This conference brings together an international community of scientists studying different aspects of chromosome metabolism including telomere and centromere biology, control of segregation, meiosis, recombination, and repair using diverse yeast species.
As the premier specialized international conference in this field, the meeting creates a singular environment that consistently attracts both leaders and newcomers in the chromosome dynamics field for a vibrant cross-fertilization of ideas and forging productive new research directions.
