Epigenomics 2019; 11(12):1353-1357
The International 3D Genomics Workshop is an annual international scientific conference focused on the research of the 3D structure of the genome in the nucleus. The 5th International 3D Genomics Workshop 2018 was held at the International Academic Center of Huazhong Agricultural University on the 13th-14th of October 2018. It attracted >150 international and local participants, including leading researchers in the field of the 3D genomics and editors from top journals. The main topic of the conference was the research achievements newly published or unpublished on the 3D genome area. The invited speakers shared their works on the topic of the new detection technologies on the 3D genome, the advanced computational analysis algorithms or suites, the nucleus microimaging technique, the simulation modeling method, the application on the biological research in different species (human, animals, plants, microorganisms, etc.) and the applications of 3D genome on medicine and agriculture. The workshop provided a forum to discuss the latest scientific news and ideas from the field of 3D genome research on various aspects of interesting topics.
