6th Annual Northeast Regional Chromosome Pairing Conference



Objective of the Meeting

This meeting focuses on the causes and consequences of homologous interactions, but the scope is wide and varied. Undergraduates, graduates, postdoctoral fellows, and PIs are encouraged to present any work on chromosome pairing, nuclear organization, transcriptional effects, chromosomal integrity, and the inheritance of genetic and epigenetic information. Preliminary data and speculative ideas are encouraged.

Topics Include:

  • Chromosome Pairing
  • Transvection
  • Nuclear Organization and Chromosome Territories
  • Chromosome Compaction
  • Condensins and Cohesins
  • Polycomb and Trithorax Complexes
  • Ultraconservation
  • Technologies for Chromosome Visualization
  • Mitosis and Meiosis
  • Heterochromatin
  • Reapeat-induced Point Mutation (RIP)
  • Genome stability and DNA repair
  • Dosage Compensation and Allelic Skewing
  • Other New, Unusual, Surprising, Poorly Understood Phenomena
