Transcriptional Regulation in Development

We hope that you will be able to join us in Chicago in July, as we continue to bring together researchers working in developmental biology with those studying the specific molecular and cellular mechanisms of transcriptional regulation.

In addition to the presentations from the invited speakers, we are also eagerly anticipating hearing from you about emerging exciting discoveries that can be considered for presentation at the meeting in the form of short talks or posters on topics including:

Developmental dynamics: patterning expression
Developmental plasticity
Transcriptional memory
Transcriptional tuning and dosage compensation
RNA and chromatin interactions
Chromatin structure and architecture
Networks, motifs, and modelling
+ show speakers and program
