Helicases and Nucleic Acid-Based Machines: Structure, Mechanism and Regulation and Roles in Human Disease
Helicases and nucleic-acid based machines are involved in all aspects of nucleic acid metabolism. Their malfunction is frequently associated with human diseases. In the past, research on helicases was mainly focused on the mechanism of individual enzymes. Recent developments in several complementary fields extend the scope of these studies. Advances in structural biology has helped to better understand their mechanism and the partners that they involve. Single molecule approaches in vitro and in vivo improve the understanding of the processes where they are involved. With the genomics and transcriptomics studies, the helicase functions are scrutinized at large scale to better appreciate their impact on cellular functions. This meeting aims at bringing together researchers from these emerging fields and promoting strong exchanges.
How to access the conference rooms?
An intuitive conference dashboard has been designed to provide you with quick and easy access to all conference rooms.
We would like this edition to be interactive with AV discussions over the talks and full of opportunities to network. Providing you with a smooth meeting technically speaking is also one of our main priorities.
A welcome desk will be available every day with a staff member that you can talk with and each participant can ask for a technical test prior to the event by sending an email to email@example.com.
