About this book

The 80th Cold Spring Harbor Symposium was held to mark the 150th anniversary of Gregor Mendel's landmark 1865 presentation of his paper "Experiments on Plant Hybridization", which laid the groundwork for modern genetics. The Symposium Proceedings provides a current synthesis of genetic mechanisms and genome/chromosome biology. 21st Century Genetics spans a broad range of topics that reflect our current understanding of genetic mechanisms in humans and other organisms. Themes include chromosome biology and nuclear structure, topologically associating domains, gene-enhancer interactions, chromatin and epigenetics, gene regulation and control, developmental regulation, RNA controlling elements, maintenance of genome stability, nuclear receptors, circadian clocks and aging, and genome editing. The Conversations included in 21st Century Genetics are based on interviews conducted during the Symposium and offer a broader anecdotal perspective on this fascinating subject by many of the world's leading investigators.
