BIOTEC Forum 2018 - Biophysics in the Nucleus

The conference aims to combine frontiers of biophysics, chromatin and nuclear architecture.

The conference aims to combine frontiers of biophysics, chromatin and nuclear architecture. Ultimately living systems must be understood using biophysics and the conference aims for interdisciplinary juxtapositions of (i) single molecule studies with polymerases and nucleosomes, (ii) super high resolution and single molecule microscopy of chromatin, (iii) modelling of nucleosomal, transcription mechanisms, chromatin fibers and nuclear architecture with regulation through chromatin including epigenetics, chromatin remodeling and nuclear topology. A further aim involves advancing quantitation into chromatin research, which has been largely based on qualitative origins. By bringing together leading protagonists in several disciplines that do not often meet, the conference will promote cross-disciplinary collaborations and synergies.

The conference will consist of Invited Talks, Talks selected from submitted abstracts and Poster Sessions.

Registration fee is 50€ for students, 200€ for academic participants and 300€ for industrial participants. Registration will open on November 20 2017. The abstract submission deadline is January 12 2018.

Combination of search terms

You can combine search terms with and, or and/or not, e.g. Philo not logy.


You can use brackets to separate combinations from each other, e.g. (Philo not logy) or (Psycho and logy).


Coherent groups of words will be located as complete phrases if you put them into quotation marks, e.g. “Federal Republic of Germany”.

Selection criteria

You can also use the advanced search without entering search terms. It will then follow the criteria you have selected (e.g. country or subject area).

If you have not selected any criteria in a given category, the entire category will be searched (e.g. all subject areas or all countries).
