Bethesda, MD The Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB) announces the opening of registration for the Science Research Conference (SRC): Genetic Recombination & Genome Rearrangements.
The 2013 FASEB Science Research Conference on Genetic Recombination & Genome Rearrangements convenes leading researchers focusing on mechanistic approaches and representing all leading model systems in the study of recombination. Recombination is the process that underlies all classical genetic analysis, and as such, understanding the mechanisms has been a major research focus for many years.
Recombination plays an essential role in dividing cells because it is the major repair pathway for DNA breaks formed during replication; this function of recombination is clearly important for tumor suppression. In addition, DNA recombination is essential for proper chromosome segregation during meiosis. An intimate relationship between recombination and other important biological processes, such as replication, transcription and repair has emerged in recent years. For these reasons, recombination is of fundamental interest to geneticists, biochemists, cancer biologists, genome biologists and structural biologists, and to those interested in basic, medical and applied aspects of this fundamental process.
FASEB SRC has announced a total of 34 SRCs in 2013. To register for an SRC, view preliminary programs, or find a listing of all our 2013 SRCs, please visit www.faseb.org/SRC.
