This FASEB Science Research Conference (SRC) explores mechanisms of homologous recombination, genome rearrangements, telomere dynamics and DNA repair, and their links to human disease. As the longest running and most importance conference in the field, this SRC convenes diverse scientists from all career stages studying multifarious aspects of recombination and genome maintenance using a wide range of biological systems and experimental approaches. A majority of talks will be selected from submitted abstracts with an emphasis on late-breaking cutting-edge advances from underrepresented and early-career investigators. Funding will be available to support underrepresented scientists. To maximize participation, all platform talks are 15 min, with additional opportunities for short talks, and posters are viewable throughout the entire conference. Career workshops, networking and social events are an integral part of the program. The Genetic Recombination and Genome Rearrangements SRC is the premier forum for advancement and innovation in the field.

The conference's main themes are: 1) Mechanisms of homologous recombination, from initiation to completion; 2) Genome rearrangements: mechanisms and consequences; 3) The interplay between recombination with other cellular processes.

Conference sessions will present the latest research and foster discussion on:
  • The molecular mechanisms behind each step of the recombination reaction
  • Genome rearrangements that occur during the development of cancer
  • Telomere dynamics
  • Meiotic recombination
  • Repair of DNA damage associated with replication
  • The influence of chromatin structure on recombination
  • Recombination and cell cycle checkpoints
The conference covers eight sessions with three poster sessions. Most of the talks will be selected from the submitted abstracts. Additionally, the conference features a “Meet the Experts” session for trainees and junior faculty to engage with experts in the field and receive career and scientific advice, and two Career Development Sessions to foster discussions with scientists from academia, industry, and government. The conference also includes an opening reception, breakfast, morning coffee break, lunch, and dinner throughout the meeting – it will provides many networking and mentoring opportunities!
