We cordially invite you to the first ASBMB-BSC symposium on the interplay between epigenetic regulation and genome integrity, which will be held in Beijing, China. The meeting will begin at 7:00pm (Beijing time) on Sunday, October 20th, and will conclude noon of Thursday, October 24th.


The symposium will include eight oral sessions and one poster session covering the latest findings and advances at the interface among epigenetic regulation, genome integrity and cancer epigenetics. Many talks will be selected from the openly submitted abstracts on the basis of scientific merit and relevance. The symposium will cover topics focusing on:

  • Epigenetic regulation of DNA replication and DNA repair
  • Chromatin assembly during DNA replication and DNA repair
  • The relationship between epigenetic changes, genome integrity and cancer
  • Chromosome motion and nucleosome dynamics during DNA replication/repair

We encourage abstracts to contain new and unpublished materials. We will select from the submitted abtracts for oral presentations, with a preference for those submitted by early career investigators, students or postdoctoral fellows. The abstracts must be submitted online by the deadline and status of abstracts (oral and poster presentation) will be posted on the website.

Travel Fellowships

We are eager to invite as many students and postdoctoral fellows to attend the conference as possible. Four fellowships, each up to 500 USD, will be awarded to overseas graduate students and postdoctoral fellows to cover some of the meeting costs. Please read instructions for applications. We look forward to seeing you in Beijing in October, 2019.
