You are cordially invited to participate in the 17th meeting on EUKARYOTIC DNA REPLICATION & GENOME MAINTENANCE which will begin on the evening of Tuesday, September 3, and end after lunch on Saturday, September 7, 2019. We are looking forward to a broad-based meeting, and abstracts are welcomed on all aspects of replication of DNA and genomic instability in eukaryotes. The format of the meeting will include morning and afternoon/evening sessions consisting of short talks, principally on unpublished work. In addition, there will be at least two poster sessions.

  • Replication Initiation Factors and Origin Activation
  • Replication Timing and Origin Control in the Cell Cycle
  • Mechanisms for Replisome Assembly, Replication Fork Progression and Termination
  • Cellular Responses to Replication Fork Stalling and Checkpoint Activation
  • Integration of DNA Replication with Transcription
  • Effects of DNA Damage on Replication and Mutagenesis
  • Roles of Chromatin on Replication and Development
  • Effects of Dysfunctional DNA Replication on Genome Instability, Cancer and Other Diseases

    Alessandro Costa, The Francis Crick Institute, UK
    Jessica Downs, The Institute of Cancer Research, UK

    Please bring this notice to the attention of any of your colleagues who may be interested in participating in the meeting.

    All abstracts must be submitted by the abstract deadline. Late registrations may be accepted after the abstract deadline if the meeting is not oversubscribed. In the event of over-subscription, every effort will be made to ensure that all groups who wish to participate will be represented. The status (talk/poster) of abstracts will be posted on our web site as soon as decisions have been made by the organizers.

    We are eager to have as many young people as possible attend since they are likely to benefit most from this meeting. We have applied for funds from government and industry to partially support graduate students and postdocs. Please apply in writing via email to Val Pakaluk and state your financial needs; preference will be given to those who submit abstracts.
