The 2016 GENiE Protein-DNA Interaction Workshop

Protein-DNA interaction workshop

March 31 – April 1, 2016

Pablo de Olavide University, Carmona

Organizers: Peter Meister (Bern University) and Peter Askjaer (CABD Seville)

Scientific Programme

Direct associations between chromatin and proteins are at the core of control of gene expression. This workshop is focused on methods developed to study such interactions including ChIP-seq, DamID and high-resolution imaging techniques. Based on lectures by invited experts and presentations by workshop organisers and participants we will discuss experimental design and data analysis optimized to your specific biological question.

Invited specialists

Sevinç Ercan (NYU), Jop Kind (Hubrecht Institute) & Christian Lanctôt (Charles University in Prague)
