A fundamental property of genomes is their topological organisation in the 3D space of the cell nucleus. Methodological advances in microscopy and genomics have paved new ways for studying the genome architecture at unprecedented spatial resolution. Emerging evidence has uncovered basic principles of genome organisation and pointed to its key roles in gene expression, genome maintenance and human disease, yet, the genome structure-to-function relationship remains elusive.
The event has been organised on the occasion of Professor Christoph Cremer´s retirement at the imb and celebrating his 75th birthday as a pioneer of super-resolution microscopy. It honors his long and distinguished career.
