EMBO Workshop

Chromatin structure, organization
and dynamics

12 - 16 September | 2020 | Prague | Czech Republic

Due to the Coronavirus Sars-CoV-2, it was impossible to organize the EMBO workshop „Chromatin Structure, Organization and Dynamics“ in this year 2020. Importantly, the EMBO agreed to change the organizing of the EMBO workshop for 2021. The new 2021 EMBO workshop „Chromatin Structure, Organization and Dynamics“ will be held from Sunday, August 29 till Thursday, September 2, in Prague.

The webpages of the new 2021 EMBO workshop will be ready from July, 2020.

With best regards, Ivan Raška
