DNA and Interacting Proteins as Single Molecules – In Vitro and In Vivo 2018
Fiesta Americana CondesaCANCUN, MEXICO Visit the Venue to read more
The advent of single-molecule approaches has revolutionized our understanding of Molecular Biology. Combined advances in light microscopy, microfluidics, atomic force microscopy, and DNA sequencing have opened ways to bypass population averages and study individual molecular events for a variety of cellular processes. This meeting aims to present the most recent advances in the mechanistic understanding of biological processes involving DNA at the single-molecule level, using both in vivo and in vitro approaches.
Key Sessions will cover various aspects of:
Each session will be divided into in vitro and in vivo sections to highlight differences and complementary information obtained.
Join the conference LinkedIn group to keep up to date with announcements and latest news concerning the conference.
This conference will appeal to researchers interested in the study of DNA metabolic events at the single molecule level: both in vitro and in vivo. There will be significant focus on DNA replication, DNA recombination, DNA repair and transcription. In addition, we would encourage participation from groups involved in single cell sequencing/genomics.
To further understanding of:
DNA metabolic processes
Single molecule approaches in vitro and data analyses
Live cell single molecule approaches
Single cell genomics

The Fiesta Americana Condesa, Cancun is the 2015 Winner of the Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence and also received the Travellers Choice Award in 2014.
The remains of ancient Mayan cities are scattered throughout the Yucatan Peninsula and no trip to Cancun would be complete without a visit to these majestic temples and pyramids set amongst lush tropical vegetation. We will be working very closely with a reputable tour company who will be organising trips to Tulum, Chichen Itza, Coba and Xcaret to name a few, some of which may require a full day. Full day excursions will be arranged pre or post conference and may be on an individual or group booking so we would recommend booking extra nights to extend your stay as early as possible to avoid disappointment should these excursions be of interest to you and/or your party. For further information please contact us.
We have a number of oral opportunities available at this meeting. To be considered for a talk, please register for the conference and you will be able to submit your abstract online and monitor the status of your abstract through your Fusion account. Please use the abstract template provided and ensure your abstract is no longer than one page in length. Any abstracts exceeding this size may be cut short during print.
Please take note of the oral submission deadline:
13 September 2017
Please check the conference programme carefully to note your presentation time (inclusive of Q&A) should you be accepted for an oral presentation.

If you have any animations or videos we do advise to run through the presentation with the AV tech to make sure everything is compatible. We also advise that all speakers make themselves known to the AV tech in the conference room immediately before your session beings. The AV tech will apply your microphone and provide a laser pointer should you have an accompanying presentation. We prefer speakers to use our master laptop to run presentations from, however, if you prefer to use your own laptop, please notify us in advance.
It is important that all speakers adhere to their presentation time and respect their fellow presenters. A visual traffic light aide will be available to warn presenters and the audience as your time decreases.
