Crossroads between transposons and gene regulation

Discussion meeting

Location

The Royal Society, London, 6-9 Carlton House Terrace, London, SW1Y 5AG

Overview

Scientific discussion meeting organised by Dr Miguel Branco and Dr Edward Chuong.

The Royal Society, London

Genome evolution is inextricably linked to the evolution of transposons that reside within. It is increasingly recognised that these selfish mobile elements play major roles in genome regulation. This meeting will discuss how transposons have shaped host gene regulation, both through their evolutionary conflict with the host, and through the dispersal of new coding and non-coding sequences with strong regulatory potential.

More information on the speakers and programme will be available soon. Speaker abstracts will be available closer to the meeting. Recorded audio of the presentations will be available on this page after the meeting has taken place. Meeting papers will be published in a future issue of Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society B.
