Otto Warburg Summer School



Otto Warburg International Summer School
and Research Symposium 2015

Transcription factors and their role in establishing
and maintaining cellular identity


September 6th-11th, Berlin

 The summer school brings together researchers and PhD students from different backgrounds (including molecular biology, bioinformatics, genetics, mathematics) to discuss recent advances in gene regulation in the context of differentiation in an interactive environment.

Thousand thanks to all participants, speakers and organizers of the OWS 2015. It has been a great success and a lot of fun.

The symposium brought together molecular biology and bioinformatics. Lectures bridged from text book knowledge to where current research starts, and seminars towards the end of the summer school presented current research in the field. The summer school gave students a chance to present their projects and interact with the speakers.

These were the topics in 2015:

  • Epigenetic regulation and chromatin architecture
  • Computational and genomic approaches to understanding gene regulation
  • Role of TFs in establishing cellular identity
  • Molecular settings of organ development
  • Heart development, function and aging
  • Cardiac iPSCs for disease modeling and drug discovery
  • The interplay between cis-regulatory elements and TFs
