Conference - La Jolla, CA , United States
Nature Genetics and Nature Reviews Cancer present Nuclear Reprogramming and the Cancer Genome 2016, Sponsored by CapitalBio Corporation.
Understanding how cell fate is controlled is fundamental to all aspects of biology. Potentially, there are many states that cells could adopt based on thousands of genetic and epigenetic elements, but in reality cell fate is constrained by signals from surrounding cells and environments. One clear example of this was shown by the transfer of a nucleus from a melanoma cell into a mouse oocyte, which produced a totipotent embryonic cell. Why and how does this reprogramming occur? This conference aims to bring together researchers working on nuclear reprogramming, cancer genomics and the functional analysis of cancer cells to see just how much we can learn from one another.
