Keystone Symposia : DNA Replication and Recombination

February 27 - March 4, 2011 • Keystone Resort • Keystone, Colorado, USA

August 26, 2010

As the pathways that govern DNA replication and DNA recombination are better defined, there is exciting progress in our understanding of the basic mechanisms of these processes. There is also growing evidence that replication and recombination are intimately connected in order to resolve problems arising during DNA replication, and to define outcomes with respect to chromosome integrity.

This meeting will integrate mechanistic insights from biochemical studies with cellular pathways that control DNA replication initiation and progression, DNA recombination, and responses to DNA damage. Specific plenary sessions will focus on DNA replication mechanisms in prokaryotes and eukaryotes. Recombination sessions will present progress in our understanding of the mechanisms underlying mitotic recombination, and on recombination-based responses to replication stress and DNA damage. Sessions will also address cell cycle checkpoint and chromatin structural responses to DNA damage.

Meeting Program :

  • Keynote Address
  • Replication Fidelity and Mutagenesis
  • Homologous Recombination Mechanisms
  • Replication Origins and Replisome Assembly
  • Telomeres and Mitochondria
  • Replication Fork Structure
  • Recombination and DNA Repair
  • Alterations in DNA and Chromatin
  • DNA Damage Response

You may register on the meeting web site until February 27, 2011.
