FASEB SRC announces conference registration: Epigenetics, Chromatin and Transcription Conference

Bethesda, MD – The Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB) announces the opening of registration for the Science Research Conference (SRC): Epigenetics, Chromatin and Transcription Conference.

The 2013 Epigenetics, Chromatin and Transcription Conference will provide an exciting forum for discussing the interplay between gene expression, chromatin structure and the epigenetic landscape. Importantly, these topics cover a wide array of specialties, ranging from those studying the basic biology underlying epigenetic inheritance to those probing how gene expression is regulated during development or in disease.

This meeting is unique in endeavoring to bring together these multiple aspects, and includes genomic and systems approaches, new views on non-coding RNAs, as well as recent breakthroughs in understanding the links between epigenetics and cancer. The program features an outstanding group of researchers from around the world presenting cutting edge research. In addition, there will be numerous short talks selected from abstracts, several poster sessions, and a "meet the expert" session focused on novel approaches to characterizing the epigenome.

FASEB SRC has announced a total of 34 SRCs in 2013. To register for an SRC, view preliminary programs, or find a listing of all our 2013 SRCs, please visit www.faseb.org/SRC.

###

Since 1982, FASEB SRC has offered a continuing series of inter-disciplinary exchanges that are recognized as a valuable complement to the highly successful society meetings. Divided into small groups, scientists from around the world meet intimately and without distractions to explore new approaches to those research areas undergoing rapid scientific changes.

In efforts to expand the SRC series, potential organizers are encouraged to contact SRC staff. Proposal guidelines can be found at www.faseb.org/SRC.

FASEB is composed of 26 societies with more than 100,000 members, making it the largest coalition of biomedical research associations in the United States. FASEB enhances the ability of scientists and engineers to improve—through their research—the health, well-being and productivity of all people. Our mission is to advance health and welfare by promoting progress and education in biological and biomedical sciences through service to our member societies and collaborative advocacy.
