Welcome

We would like to welcome you to the 2019 FEBS Workshop on Chromatin Proteomics! The Workshop is a follow-up to the highly successful 2014 FEBS/EMBO Lecture Course on Nuclear Proteomics and the 2016 FEBS Workshop on Chromatin Proteomics that were also held in Greece. This year’s Workshop is co-organized with the support by the EPIC-XS European Proteomics Infrastructure Consortium.

The eukaryotic nucleus contains the information that is required to build an enormously complex organism consisting of a multitude of different cell types. This complexity is achieved by multiple interactions between the DNA and the proteins that package and regulate the DNA in the nucleus, i.e. chromatin. Whereas the nuclear DNA has been fully sequenced, there are still many unknowns regarding the nature and the dynamics of the protein complement of chromatin, both in terms of the structural organization and of the regulation of gene activity and other DNA-templated processes. Hence, as in previous meetings, the goal of the 2019 Workshop is to foster scientific exchange between scientists working on the chromatin proteome, the dynamic behavior of proteins in the nucleus and the integration and visualization of protein and DNA networks. There will be dedicated sessions on the proteomic analysis of histone modifications and on functional and structural chromatin proteomics. New additions to the scientific program include a session on chemical biology and chemical proteomics approaches in chromatin research and on modelling chromatin states. In addition, there will be a training session on analyzing and visualizing large proteomic datasets using MaxQuant. The Workshop will also include two poster sessions where all participants will be strongly encouraged to present their work and no fewer than 15 short oral presentations by junior researchers selected from the abstracts. Travel Awards for junior researchers are also available, pending an application/review process.

The venue for the Workshop is the beautiful Fodele Beach Resort near Heraklion Crete, located in a unique area of natural beauty by the Mediterranean Sea.

Do not miss out on this opportunity to catch up with the latest in Chromatin Proteomics research in a beautiful seaside setting!

The Organizing Committee,

John Strouboulis, Axel Imhof and Till Bartke.
