Analysis and modeling of the three-dimensional structure of chromatin

Advances in experimental techniques yield large amounts of functional and structural data on eukaryotic chromatin. This is both a challenge and an opportunity. Integration of these data yields insight into chromatin organization and function and demonstrate surprising diversity of this organization in different eukaryotes. Current experimental developments progress in several directions, such as increased resolution of bulk (averaged over cell ensembles) data, single-cell data, and data on chromatin reorganization during cell cycle or differentiation. This, in turn, requires development of new computational approaches in data analysis and integration (e.g. using deep learning) and modeling. The aim of the workshop is to bring together experimental biologists, specialists in bioinformatics, data analysis and polymer physics with the aim to identify arising problems, emerging trends and, hopefully, foster new multidisciplinary collaborations.
