About the Conference

This conference is focused on the exciting world of structure-function relationships in the cell nucleus. The topics to be discussed will embrace the main nuclear functions, DNA replication, transcription, DNA repair in their spatiotemporal context as well as subnuclear structures and diseases related to nuclear functions. A special emphasis will be placed on technical as well as quantitative and computational aspects, by focusing in particular on the advantages and limitations of the various methods proposed in studies of the cell nucleus.


4D Nucleome conference in Kraków is a continuation of two previous meetings held in Mainz and in Hiroshima.
