Multiscale Modeling of Chromatin: Bridging Experiment with Theory is organized by Biophysical Society (BPS) and will be held from Mar 31 - Apr 05, 2019 at Les Houches, Europe, France. Course Description: This meeting will bring together biologists, chemists, physicists, and mathematicians to discuss and launch collaborations to advance the field of chromatin modeling and applications through new conceptual approaches and perspectives. The meeting will emphasize the unique multiscale features and properties of chromatin, from DNA to nuclear organization and interactions, and will encourage/enhance the development of multiscale models and experimental strategies needed to address all relevant components of the chromatin folding problem. Such multiscale approaches, combining experimental data and modeling/informatics, are necessary to extract and identify structure/function relationships on various scales, from individual base pairs to whole genomes, and to pursue important applications in epigenetics and medicine. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
