Summary of "40th International Asilomar Chromatin, Chromosomes and Epigenetics Conference."

The 40th International Asilomar Chromatin, Chromosomes and Epigenetics Conference was held in the Asilomar Conference Grounds, Pacific Groove California, USA on December 6Th-9th 2018. The organizing committee consisted of established scientists in the fields of chromatin and epigenetics: Sally Pasion and Michael Goldman from the Biology Department, San Francisco State University, CA, USA, Philippe Georgel from the Department of Biological Sciences, Marshal University, WV, USA, Juan Ausió from the Biochemistry and Microbiology, University of Victoria, BC, Canada and Christopher Eskiw from the Department of Biochemistry, University of Saskatchewan, SK, Canada. The meeting had two keynote speakers: Jessica Tyler and Jennifer Mitchell and it covered topics on transcription, replication and repair, epigenetics, cell differentiation and disease, telomeres and centromeres and it had two sessions devoted to nuclear and genomic organization. It encompassed the enthusiastic presentations of excellent trainees within the breathtaking natural setting of Pacific Grove.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Work that consists of a conference of physicians on their observations of a patient at the bedside, regarding the physical state, laboratory and other diagnostic findings, clinical manifestations, results of current therapy, etc. A clinical conference usually ends with a confirmation or correction of clinical findings by a pathological diagnosis performed by a pathologist. "Clinical conference" is often referred to as a "clinico-pathological conference."

Nitrogen mustard analog of quinacrine used primarily as a stain in the studies of chromosomes and chromatin. Fluoresces by reaction with nucleic acids in chromosomes.

Work consisting of summary statements, from a conference sponsored by NIH, representing the majority of current opinion of physicians, scientists, and other professionals on a selected subject.

Zinc finger domains of approximately 50 to 80 amino acids in length that are characterized by a conserved Cysteine(3)-Histidine-Cysteine(4) amino acid motif which coordinates binding of two zinc ions. They are similar structurally to RING FINGER DOMAINS, with a globular fold topology of two BETA-SHEETS and an ALPHA-HELIX. PHD fingers occur in many proteins that function in chromatin-mediated gene expression and EPIGENETICS such as POLYCOMB-GROUP PROTEINS.

A system of physical units in which the fundamental quantities are length, time, mass, electric current, temperature, luminous intensity, and amount of substance, and the corresponding units are the meter, second, kilogram, ampere, kelvin, candela, and mole. The system has been given official status and recommended for universal use by the General Conference on Weights and Measures.
