Gene transcription in Yeast: from mechanisms to gene regulatory networks

Gene transcription is a large, diverse and fast moving field, which crucially depends on interdisciplinary.

This meeting (the second EMBO conference in a series) aims to catalyze the transformation of the field from classical genetics, biochemistry and structural biology to functional genomics and molecular systems biology of gene transcription and regulation.

The way we think about transcription and transcriptional regulation changes rapidly as the field moves from genetics and biochemistry to systems biology.

The main goal of this second meeting of the Conference Series is to discuss and integrate the very latest information from different areas of research that control the same final process of the expression of genes, fundamental to life in all organisms.

The transcription field is a very large, diverse, and rapidly moving field and thus we will expand our view to high throughput analysis and network components.
