    Gene Regulation by the Numbers | Quantitative Approaches to Study Transcription

    Mon - Wed, Jun 19 to Jun 21, 8:00am - 6:00pm

    Location: 

    Institute of Molecular Biology (IMB), Ackermannweg 4, 55128 Mainz, Germany

    The conference will explore the latest findings and technological developments in the field of gene regulation. The regulation of gene expression is a highly complex process in which numerous different factors play a role, such as signalling pathways, transcription factors and epigenetic modifications. With the recent surge in the development of omics technologies, researchers have generated vast amounts of data describing the contribution of these factors to controlling gene activity. However, interpreting, validating and integrating the data remains a major challenge.
