Chromosomes, condensates, and transcriptional control

Date

Event Description

All cells must control the reading out (“transcription”) of information encoded in their DNA.  
In this symposium we will look at new observations on the condensation of protein droplets surrounding sites of active transcription,
at new theoretical approaches to the  dynamics of chromosomes, and at theories that connect these molecular events to functional outputs.
