New course Cross-Domain Chromatin Organisation

Published on December 20, 2016

On February 15, 2017 the new MSc course Cross-domain Chromatin Organisation will start.

In order to estimate the number of participants in the course, please enroll by January 15, 2017.

In this course current topics relating to chromatin organization and genome activity across the three domains of life (eukaryotes, archaea and bacteria) will be discussed. Following an overview of basic concepts of chromatin organization in different species, the interplay of chromatin structure with cellular processes will be discussed. Novel techniques for studying these aspects will be highlighted, as well as novel approaches to manipulate chromatin organization with applications in research and medicine.

Topics will be discussed based on recent review and research articles, as well as current research within the research institute.
