EMBO Workshop: Physiology and function of histone variants

This EMBO workshop, organized by Marcus BUSCHBECK (Josep Carreras Leukaemia Research Institute) and Emily BERNSTEIN (Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, US), will be held at the Josep Carreras Institute headquarters (Badalona, Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain) on 22-24 September 2021

We will discuss the latest molecular insights into how histone variants are regulated and how they execute their epigenetic function.

The modulation of chromatin structure and function is the basis of epigenetic regulation. The replacement of replication-coupled histones in the nucleosome by histone variants is still one of the least understood aspects of chromatin regulation. Advances in recent years have made it clear that histone variants play a pivotal role in development and cancer. 

Apply now and send your abstracts until June 29th! Accepted participants will confirm their preferred mode of participation when notified by July 12th 2021.
