The ABC 2023 conference will be a venue to discuss subjects surrounding the sequence-dependent physical properties of DNA, new methods and new models, with a multiscale perspective. From the shorter atomistic scale to more biologically pertinent length scales (mesoscale), i.e. from electrons to nucleosomes. Top international researchers, ABC members, and collaborators from diverse fields(experimentalists, computational chemists/physicists, and developers of new methods) will converge to discuss on:     


  •        All-atom force field development for nucleic acids

  •        Sequence-dependent mechanical properties of DNA

  •        Coarse-grained models of nucleic acids

  •        Multiscale simulations of nucleic acids

  •        Protein-DNA interactions

  •        DNA-solvent interactions

  •        Nucleosome structure and chromatin fibers

  •        Nucleosome positioning  

  •        Epigenetic modifications: DNA and histone tails
