The Yeast Chromosome Biology and Cell Cycle Conference

July 17–21, 2022
Southbridge, MA


July 17-21, 2022

Launched in 1990, this FASEB Science Research Conference (SRC) focuses on chromosome structure, replication, and segregation and regulation of the cell cycle using yeast models to understand genome maintenance and its link to disease. Leading researchers present predominantly unpublished work and highlight new tools in genomics and single cell approaches.

The conference brings together trainees and independent researchers investigating chromosome biology and cell cycle. It serves as a critical vehicle for the dissemination of important findings, recent technologies, and stimulating collaborations and connections among researchers. This is an outstanding venue for young researchers to present their work and network with leading scientists in the field.

Abstract Deadline: Extended until June 13, 2022 11:59 pm ET

The program’s two main themes are the structure, replication, and segregation of chromosomes in yeast, and the integration of these processes with regulation of the cell cycle. An underlying thread is how disruption of these processes can lead to pathological states. New tools in genomics and genetics are also highlighted.

Conference sessions present the latest research and foster discussion on:
  • Chromatin and nuclear organization
  • Cell cycle regulation
  • Genome stability and repair
  • DNA replication
  • Telomeres and end maintenance
  • Kinetochores and spindles
  • Mitosis
  • Meiosis and recombination

The conference covers eight plenary sessions, at least two "flash talk" sessions by trainees, and three poster sessions. The program includes several lunchtime “Meet the Expert” sessions for trainees and junior faculty to meet with senior researchers for career and scientific advice. Additionally, there will be a Career Development Session for trainees and early investigators to obtain advice and suggestions about grant preparation, publications, and careers outside of academia.

As in previous years, we will also feature Flash Talks—very brief, movie-trailer-like teasers setting the stage for poster presentations. Flash Talks are selected based on poster abstracts.
