Coronavirus information for participants
The onsite course and conference programme at EMBL has been paused until the end of June 2020.
We aim to continue offering our advanced training for the scientific community however we safely can. While some events have been cancelled, many have been rescheduled for a later date and others will be delivered as virtual events.
Registration is open for onsite courses and conferences starting after 1 July and for the virtual events. All registration fees for any events which don’t take place due to the COVID-19 disruption are fully refundable.
More information for participants of events at EMBL Heidelberg can be found here.
The EMBL Transcription and Chromatin meeting has a long-standing tradition in shaping the field of transcriptional regulation. The meeting brings together leading experts covering all aspects of transcription including cis-regulatory function, long range regulation, 3-dimensional looping, the basal transcriptional machinery, RNA polymerase regulation and function, nucleosome positioning, chromatin modifications, chromatin remodelling and epigenetic inheritance of transcriptional silencing. The meeting contains many talks selected from the abstracts that are interspersed with invited speakers, discussing the latest breakthroughs in transcriptional regulation.
The conference is designed to promote interactive discussions at both the talks and poster sessions. Given the excellent line up of speakers and the meeting’s outstanding reputation, this is a ‘must’ attend for anyone interested in cutting edge research in transcription.

What past participants say about the conference:
"I had a great time at EMBL Transcription and Chromatin. I enjoyed the variety of topics covered in the talks and I got a lot of input during the poster session. I hope one day I can also give a talk at this conference!" - Laura Breimann, Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine, Germany
"This was certainly the most exciting meeting I have ever attended. The EMBL respires science of excellence. I will be back!" - Marcelo Fantappie, Rio de Janeiro Federal University, Brazil
"The EMBL Transcription and Chromatin Conference 2018 was excellent. It provided me with an invaluable opportunity to network, discuss my research with experts and learn a lot about the cutting edge research in the field. I feel very lucky to have had the opportunity to attend this conference." - Katrina Mitchell, Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre, Australia
