7th International Fission Yeast Meeting: Pombe 2013

This EMBO Conference will cover the broad range of biological processes currently being studied in this popular model organism, including DNA metabolism (replication, repair, recombination), chromosomes and chromatin, gene regulation, cellular responses to environment, cell morphology, cell division, mitosis and meiosis as well as genome-wide approaches, bioinformatics and tools & resources.
