Notice about the ASBMB-BSC symposium on the interplay between epigenetic regulation and genome integrity

Updated: 2019-07-26

The ASBMB-BSC symposium on the interplay between epigenetic regulation and genome integrity is scheduled to be held in Suzhou, China from Oct 20 to 24. 

Organized by the Biophysical Society of China and the American Society of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (ASBMB), the symposium will discuss the latest findings and advances in epigenetic regulation, genome integrity, and cancer epigenetics, aiming to bolster the application of epigenetics findings in the diagnosis and treatment of human diseases.  

Travel awards will be granted to overseas graduate students and postdoctoral fellows to cover some of their travel expenses.
