Yeast Chromosome Biology and Cell Cycle

Conference Summary

Understanding the intricately interconnected systems that regulate chromosome biology and the cell cycle is a major challenge in modern cell biology.  Yeast systems continue to provide key biological insights and technical breakthroughs that drive progress in the fields of cell cycle, DNA replication, recombination and repair, chromatin structure, spindle assembly and regulation, kinetochore structure and function, telomere biology and nuclear organization.  This FASEB SRC brings together leaders in these fields, young up-and-coming faculty and the students and postdocs, who are actually doing the work to share the most current technical and conceptual advances, meet their colleagues from across the globe and establish new collaborations.

A tradition of international participation—with strong participation from Asia and Europe—ensures broad representation of ideas.  Building on a long series of successful meetings, this meeting has been known as "The" Yeast Chromosome Meeting, a not-to-be-missed gathering of the most important work in the field. We will integrate more participation from the cell cycle community in 2018. The meeting is known for a congenial and interactive atmosphere in which all the posters are up for the whole meeting and everybody comes to the evening poster sessions to talk science, make new connections and renew old ones. This incarnation will include sessions on Chromosome and Chromatin Structure, DNA Replication, Meiosis and Recombination, Telomeres, Kinetochores and Spindles, Mitosis, Nuclear Organization and Cell Cycle Control.

Important Deadlines:

  • Early bird registration deadline May 21, 2018
  • Last day to register June 21, 2018


  • Over 20 talks will be selected from the abstracts.
  • Meet the Experts every evening at the social-hour poster sessions and afterwards.
  • Hike with the Experts on a fabulous afternoon trek in the Rocky Mountains
