Multiscale Modeling of Chromatin: Bridging Experiment with Theory

Welcome Letter

March 2019

Dear Colleagues, We would like to welcome you to the Biophysical Society Thematic Meeting, Multiscale Modeling of Chromatin: Bridging Experiment with Theory in Les Houches, France. This meeting emphasizes the unique multiscale features and properties of chromatin, from DNA to nuclear organization and interactions, and encourages/enhances the development of multiscale models and experimental strategies needed to address all relevant components of the chromatin folding problem. Such multiscale approaches, combining experimental data and modeling/informatics, are necessary to extract and identify structure/function relationships on various scales, from individual base pairs to whole genomes, and to pursue important applications in epigenetics and medicine. The meeting offers a full program with 36 lectures and 29 posters, bringing together around 70 scientists, students, and postdocs from different fields and countries. We hope that the meeting provides opportunities for attendees to share current scientific progress and foster future collaborations in the field of chromatin modeling and applications. Please use the networking times to explore the beautiful surroundings and talk with your colleagues informally. Suggestions for informal afternoon gatherings are most welcome! Thank you for joining this meeting and we look forward to enjoying the science with all of you in Les Houches!
