    • Higher-Order Chromatin Architecture in Time and Space: click here to register
      • The 2020 Keystone meeting is meant to highlight new frontiers across disciplines in tackling the dynamics and functional roles of the 3D genome in cellular functions across time and space in development and disease. The conference program will also include workshops on: (1) Leading computational methods to identify biologically relevant patterns in Hi-C data, (2) New genome mapping and imaging technologies, and (3) New data resources available through the 4D Nucleome consortium. Finally, it will conclude with a session devoted to novel tools for imaging and engineering the 3D genome.
      • When and where: March 15 - 19, 2020. Whistler Conference Centre, Whistler, BC, Canada
      • Scientific Organizers: Jennifer E. Phillips-Cremins, Job Dekker and Stavros Lomvardas
    • The Four-Dimensional Genome symposium: Click here to register
      • This symposium will bring together the latest advances in the fields of genomics, microscopy, and modeling to foster their integration towards a comprehensive spatial and temporal understanding of the functional four-dimensional organization of the eukaryotic genome.
      • When and where: Mar 29 - Apr 1, 2020. EMBL Heidelberg, Germany
      • Organizers: Wendy Bickmore, Jan Ellenberg, Susan M. Gasser, Christian Haring, Bas van Steensel, Tim Nurnberger.
