Workshop on Chromosome Biology
June 10, 2015
Location: Lister Hill
This Workshop is sponsored by the NCI's Center of Excellence in Chromosome Biology (CECB) and the NIH Chromatin Interest Group. The aim is to foster interaction among major laboratories in the areas of chromosome biology, and to enhance the education and development of junior investigators and fellows in CECB laboratories. With rapid advances and new technologies in the field, continuous interaction with members of the international community is critical to insure the most effective development of our research programs.
Keynote Presentation: Rodney Rothstein
Increased chromosome mobility and the homology search during double-strand break repair
