The 3D Genome Organization Special session is accepting submissions for full length papers as well as oral presentations. Please see below a list of relevant topics of interest. Full length papers should describe unpublished, original research describing a new approach or result relevant to 3D genome organization. Submissions for oral presentations will be for newly published work or work in progress with early promising results. Both types of submissions can be made through the main conference website here:
Topics of Interest
- Statistical processing of conformation capture data
- Prediction of long-range regulatory interactions
- Identification of higher-order organizational units
- Interpretation of regulatory variation
- Novel types of techniques and datasets
- Dynamics in long-range gene regulation
- Methods for analysis and integration of imaging data with conformation capture
- Characterization of chromatin states, activity and accessibility
- Modeling methods for 3D chromosome and genome structure
Authors of all full papers that are accepted for oral talks at the conference will be considered for publication in a PLOS ONE Collection devoted to the conference proceedings. Prior to submission to PLOS ONE, authors who decide to proceed with this option are expected to address the reviewers’ comments received during the GLBIO review process. Then, such revised papers will be subject to additional peer review by the journal, where members of the PLOS ONE Editorial Board who are also members of the GLBIO Program Committee will handle the papers and, where possible, invite the same reviewers that have participated in the GLBIO review process. For more information please visit the submissions page on the main GLBIO website.
Papers should be submitted through the main submissions website below. Select “Full length papers for Oral Presentations” and click “continue” to upload a PDF version of your paper. You will also need to copy the abstract into the corresponding field. Please be sure to select the box next to the corresponding special session “3D Genome Organization in Gene Regulation” under the “Other Information and Uploads” section before you submit.
Abstracts for Oral Presentation submissions to GLBIO 2017 should be a page in length (approximately 600 words) and have no figures.
All accepted abstracts will have the chance to publish their work in the ISCB Community Journal and will be contacted after acceptance about this opportunity.
Abstracts should be submitted through the main submissions website below. Select “Abstracts for Oral Presentations” and click “continue”. You will only need to copy and paste your abstract into the corresponding field, there is no need to upload a PDF version.
