International Conference on Nuclear Mechano-Genomics

April 17-20, 2018
National University of Singapore


The International Conference on Nuclear Mechano-Genomics is being organized by the Mechanobiology  Institute, National University of Singapore from April 17-20, 2018 at the National University of Singapore, Singapore.

Principle theme and objectives of the Conference:

Packing of our genomes within the cell nucleus or within prokaryotic cells poses major mechanical constraints. In addition, recent evidences are beginning to reveal that the cytoskeletal organization and how cells interact with the local mechano-chemical micro environment within tissues, regulate genomic programs and the maintenance of genomic integrity. Growth in this area is largely driven by a highly interdisciplinary approach, with state-of-the art bioimaging, engineering and computational methods, to analyze the mechano-chemical basis of gene regulatory programs. The principle theme of this meeting is to bring together leading international experts, early career scientists, postdoctoral and graduate scholars under one umbrella to discuss the latest developments in the emerging area of Nuclear Mechano-Genomics and Diseases.

The conference will cover four major themes:

· Nuclear mechanotransduction
· 4D nucleome and genome regulation
· Nuclear mechanics and genome integrity
· Nuclear mechano-pathology and diseases
