Organizer:
FASEB Science Research Conferences
Abstract:
The main themes of this conference are: 1) The 25th anniversary of the Sleeping Beauty transposon resurrection and its use for advancing basic science and clinical research; 2) Advances in the development of wet bench and bioinformatics tools for transposon discovery and annotation across a broad spectrum of organisms; 3) Molecular mechanisms of transposon mobilization and the impact on the host, with a specific emphasis on aging and age-associated diseases such as cancer and neurodegeneration. Conference sessions will explore the latest findings and promote discussions on: Mobile DNA and Human Disease, Transposons and Aging, Sleeping Beauty – 25 Years of Discovery, Mobile DNA, Epigenetics, and Gene Regulation, Mechanisms of Mobilization, Comparative Genomics of Transposable Elements, Computational Tool Use and Development, and Population Genomics of Mobile DNA. In addition to a keynote lecture from Zsuzsanna Izsvak, PhD (Max Delbruck Center for Molecular Medicine) , the conference will feature nine oral sessions, two poster sessions, and two career development workshops. As part of a series of events for trainees, a “Meet the Expert” session is included to foster informal interaction between participants and selected experts representing the conference’s research themes.
