About the Workshop

Maintenance of genome integrity lies at the heart of cell homeostasis. While DNA repair mechanisms have received significant attention for more than half a century, the contribution of the chromatin environment and nuclear organization to genome maintenance has only begun to emerge over the past decade. It is evident that chromatin, being the actual substrate for repair machineries, is heavily remodeled following damage detection and exerts a key function in both targeting and regulating repair at different genomic loci.

The second edition of this workshop continues to bring together an outstanding group of scientists from around the world, including young researchers as well as leaders in the field, to cover the following topics central to our understanding of chromatin function in nuclear organization and genome maintenance: (i) DNA repair in distinct nuclear domains, (ii) chromatin motion in response to DNA damage, (iii) histone modifications and nucleosome dynamics following DNA damage and (iv) regulatory functions of transcription and RNA during DNA repair and replication stress.

About the Area

The meeting will take place in the Aalmarktzaal of the beautiful 'Stadsgehoorzaal', a well-equipped, early-19th century concert hall in the center of Leiden, the Netherlands (video). Poster exhibitions will take place next to the Aalmarktzaal in the Jan Willem Schaap foyer of the Stadsgehoorzaal. The venue is located in Leiden, a medium-sized, lively and historic town. The city is famous for its almshouses, museums and history. In 1575, Leiden had the distinction of becoming the first city in the Netherlands to have a university. It is also the city where Rembrandt was born. Finally, the canals, historical buildings, alleyways, and treasuries of culture and science in Leiden are worth a visit.
