Abstract

The 43rd Asilomar Chromatin, Chromosomes, and Epigenetics Conference was held in an entirely online format from 9 to 11 December 2021. The conference enabled presenters at various career stages to share promising new findings, and presentations covered modern chromatin research across an array of model systems. Topics ranged from the fundamental principles of nuclear organization and transcription regulation to key mechanisms underlying human disease. The meeting featured five keynote speakers from diverse backgrounds and was organized by Juan Ausió, University of Victoria (British Columbia, Canada), James Davie, University of Manitoba (Manitoba, Canada), Philippe T. Georgel, Marshall University (West Virginia, USA), Michael Goldman, San Francisco State University (California, USA), LeAnn Howe, The University of British Columbia (British Columbia, Canada), Jennifer A. Mitchell, University of Toronto (Ontario, Canada), and Sally G. Pasion, San Francisco State University (California, USA).

Résumé

La 43e conférence d’Asilomar sur la chromatine, les chromosomes et l’épigénétique s’est tenue dans un format entièrement en ligne du 9 au 11 décembre 2021. La conférence a permis à des présentateurs à différents stades de leur carrière de partager de nouvelles découvertes prometteuses, et les présentations ont couvert la recherche moderne sur la chromatine à travers un éventail de systèmes modèles. Les sujets abordés allaient des principes fondamentaux de l’organisation nucléaire et de la régulation de la transcription aux mécanismes clés qui sous-tendent les maladies humaines. La réunion, qui comptait cinq conférenciers d’horizons divers, était organisée par : Juan Ausió, University of Victoria (Colombie-Britannique, Canada), James Davie, Universiy of Manitoba (Manitoba, Canada), Philippe T. Georgel, Marshall University (Virginie occidentale, États-Unis), Michael Goldman, San Francisco State University (Californie, États-Unis), LeAnn Howe, University of British Columbia (Colombie-Britannique, Canada), Jennifer A. Mitchell, University of Toronto (Ontario, Canada), et Sally G. Pasion, San Francisco State University (Californie, États-Unis). [Traduit par la Rédaction]
