The Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP), Trieste, Italy, is organizing an Advanced Workshop on "Interdisciplinary View in Chromosome Structure & Function", to be held in Trieste, Italy, from 15 - 19 September 2014. Understanding how the genetic material is organized in space in eukaryotes and bacteria is one of the big challenges of current molecular biology. It is now clear that the complexity of the cellular machinery is so profound that its full comprehension can be pursued only through the joint efforts of scientists coming from cross-related disciplines like molecular biology, systems biology, bioinformatics and physics. This Workshop aims at bringing scientists from these different disciplines in a real interdisciplinary context. The state-of-the-art of experimental, modeling and physical aspects in chromosome organization will be discussed, with particular emphasis on future important challenges. Topics include: -High-throughput and imaging methods for chromosome structure and dynamics; -Gene regulatory networks in eukaryotes and bacteria: experiments and modeling; - Large-scale physical modeling and simulation of chromosome structure; - System biology of gene expression and regulation.
10 PCs needed in LB Lab.
