We remind you that the next chromatin club meeting will take place this week, Thursday October 2nd 2014 at 10 AM at IAB (access).

The program will be:
For the seminar: Pierre Antoine Defossez (Epigenetics and Cell fate, Paris)
Transcription silencing and DNA methylation

Fort the two short talks:
– Valérie Robert (Palladino lab, ENS Lyon)
The SET-2/SET1 histone H3K4 methyltransferase maintains pluripotency in the Caenorhabditis elegans germline

– Carmen Aguilar (Panne lab, EMBL)
Structure of the Nap1–H2A–H2B complex and implications for nucleosome assembly Continue reading “Reminder: Next meeting October 02 2014, 10AM IAB”

Meeting in Strasbourg: Chromatin & Epigenetics: from omics to Single Cells

409_13_ST Poster for Chromatin and Epigenetics Event
Maria Elena Torres Padilla and Robert Schneider are organising together with Abcam a meeting in Strasbourg in October 14th-15th, 2014.

They have a great line of speakers confirmed, and hope to link major aspects of chromatin regulation from omics approaches to single cell approaches.

Registration deadline is coming soon ! If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask them!

Summer School in Les Houches

Summer School Les Houches This summer school provides an exceptional opportunity to develop a broad overview of the state-of-art developments in integrated structural cell biology, to meet in a nice environment both senior lecturers who are world leaders in their field, as well as students and early-stage researchers from different countries, and all of this in a beautiful environment.

It is located in Les Houches, near Chamonix (France), from July 7th – August 1st.

Please take a look at the website, and help spread the information!

We broke the record of EMBL site entries !

We would like to thank you all for coming to our last meeting at EMBL/ILL. Apparently, we broke the local record in the number of site entries ! They did not have enough visitor badges at the entrance! Next time, we will use a more efficient way of registration!

The next meeting will take place at the IAB on September 19th 2013. The main seminar will be presented by Sophie Polo, head of the Group Epigenome Integrity (Unit Epigenetics and Cell Fate, Paris). Sophie Polo is studying molecular players that control histone dynamics and alterations in higher-order chromatin structure in response to genotoxic stress (website).

The short talks and the final program will be announced soon!

Best Wishes for 2013! Next Meeting: April 4th 2013 – 10am – EMBL

Best wishes for 2013 !!
