EMBO|EMBL Symposium: DNA Replication: From Basic Biology to Disease

  August 16, 2017  
EMBL, Heidelberg, Germany

There has been tremendous progress in the past few years regarding our understanding of DNA replication in eukaryotes, both yeast and mammals. Many important questions in the field are poised to be answered within the next decade. These include understanding DNA replication at the biochemical and three-dimensional protein structure levels. In addition, studies using high throughput technologies at the cellular and organismal levels are poised to answer how accurate replication of the genome is ensured by controlling origin firing in space and time.

Several human diseases, including cancer, have already been linked to DNA replication stress, a term that refers to perturbations in DNA replication. Thus, a better understanding of how cells respond to DNA replication stress will help us understand disease development and responses to therapy. By bringing together experts in the basic biology of DNA replication and DNA replication stress, this symposium aims to fuel further progress in these important fields.
