Cell-to-Cell Heterogeneity in Chromatin Structure


cell_heterogeneity_poster 2

We are organizing a mini-symposium to bring together experts in chromatin research and the development of single-cell methods. The goal is to develop new approaches to deconvolute dynamics and heterogeneity in chromatin structure in various systems.

Open to the scientific community: undergrad students, doctoral candidates, postdocs and all scientists.


14:00 Welcome

14:10 Jane Mellor, University Oxford
From smRNA FISH to a mathematical model for gene expression: How antisense transcription modulates chromatin structure to alter rates of transcription elongation and transcript stability

14:32 Robert Schneider, Helmholtz Zentrum Munich
Regulation of gene induction and repression in individual cells

14:54 Nicolai Siegel, Munich
What controls heterogeneity in antigen expression?

15:16 Magda Bienko, Karolinska Institute Stockholm
Illuminating genome organization through integrated microscopy and sequencing

15:38 Richard Bartfai, University Nijmegen
