1st August 2015 – 5th August 2015
The Zing conference on “Genomic Integrity” will focus on the various pathways that help protect living creatures from the genetic changes that lead to genomic instability, mutagenesis, inherited rare human diseases, cancer, premature aging and neurological disorders. It is now understood that the ability to maintain the integrity of an organisms genome is achieved though the interplay between a variety of DNA repair pathways and the meeting will focus on new insights into our understanding of base excision repair, nucleotide excision repair, mismatch repair, replication fidelity, translesion DNA synthesis, cell cycle signaling and homologous recombination.
The program will include time for vibrant group discussions, poster sessions and ample time for individual interactions. The key goal of this international meeting is to allow the community of scientists working in this highly interconnected set of sub-fields to come together in a single location, so as to share their exciting results and to discuss their thoughts for future research directions and collaborations.
We hope that you’ll be able to join us in Cairns, Australia, for what we anticipate will be a stimulating and thought provoking meeting on all aspects of genomic integrity.
