Workshop Details
Nucleic Acid Chemistry
07/25/2016 - 07/29/2016
Meeting Description:

Topics: This workshop will explore the frontiers of nucleic acid chemistry in its broadest sense including topics in chemical modification of DNA and RNA, catalysis mediated by nucleic acids, chemical mechanisms of enzymes acting upon nucleic acids, physical chemistry of electron or hole transport in nucleic acids, theory related to nucleic acid structure and reactivity, design of nucleic acid analogs for biomedical or bioanalytical applications, and supramolecular assemblies of nucleic acids for sensors or computing. Participants will be chosen to represent not only a broad selection of topics, but also a selection of expertise ranging from analytical, physical and theoretical chemistry to organic, inorganic and biological chemistry. Invited participants will be at various stages of their academic (or industrial) careers, and hail from a broad geographical cross-section of North America, Europe, Asia or elsewhere. Special efforts will be made to include junior faculty and underrepresented populations.

Format: Each participant will give a 30 minute presentation with 15 additional minutes for discussion, with M-F sessions to be held at the whim of Mother Nature, reserving the more clement periods for informal discussions on the mountainsides. The schedule will be kept flexible; no proceedings will be published. Participants will be expected to attend for the entire week.

Sponsorship is gratefully acknowledged from ChemGenes, Glen Research, Integrated DNA Technologies, New England Biolabs, TriLink Biotechnologies, ChemMedChem/ChemBioChem, ACS Division of Biological Chemistry, ACS Central Science, Berry & Associates, and Cell Chemical Biology.

Notes:

If you are interested in attending a meeting, but have not received an invitation, please contact the workshop organizer about availability before registering. Most TSRC meetings are very small, typically only about 25 people. If you have registered for a meeting you were not invited to, you may be subject to a $100 fee.
