Genomic Instability

Genomic instability (GIN) is the cause of many diseases including cancers and genetic disorders such as Ataxia Telangiectasia, Fanconi anemia, Bloom’s syndrome, Cockayne’s syndrome, Fragile X, Nijmegen breakage syndrome, Werner syndrome and Xeroderma pigmentosa, to name a few. The major source of genomic instability comes from errors in DNA replication, repair and recombination (3R).

The 2014 conference on Genomic Instability is designed to address diverse research areas focused on genomic instability caused by DNA transaction mechanisms under stress that evoke the DNA damage checkpoint response. Cutting edge research will be presented on the molecular mechanisms involved in the repair and processing of abnormal DNA structures, signaling pathways for S phase checkpoint, and the biological consequences of errors introduced by these processes. Topics to be covered include replication fidelity, chromosome segregation and aneuploidy, GIN-induced cancer, aging and developmental defects, as well as therapeutic targets in DNA repair.
