2014 Joint JSPS-NUS Advances in chromatin biology workshop
Hosted by the National University of Singapore

Chromatin function is critical to virtually every aspect of human health. Recent conceptual and technological advances have forced a re-evaluation of how we think chromatin influences transcription, replication, mitosis, and development. This workshop will explore how chromatin impacts these critical cellular functions from the level of DNA to chromosomes.
