Mechanisms of Recombination conference is organized by Abcam and will be held from Apr 29 - May 03, 2020 at Wellcome Genome Campus Conference Centre, Cambridge, England, United Kingdom. Description: Genetic recombination provides an important mechanism for the repair of chromosome breaks caused by DNA damage or replication fork demise. Defects in the recombination process have been linked to cancer predisposition, in particular breast cancers caused by mutations in BRCA1, BRCA2 and PALB2, and also acute leukemias associated with the rare genetic disease Fanconi anemia. Understanding precisely how recombination occurs is of interest to workers in the fields of meiosis, DNA repair, replication, chromosome architecture and interactions, and chromatin biology. Topics: • Recombination mechanisms • Links between replication and recombination • Maintenance of genome stability • Chromosome interactions and meiosis Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
