Gene Expression

The Gene Expression SIG is newly constituted to further interest in research and advocacy focused on mechanisms of gene expression.

Recognizing that a growing human disease burden is associated with alterations in the regulation of gene expression, the Gene Expression SIG is organized to:

  • raise the awareness of the importance of gene regulation in human disease pathogenesis
  • create a cross-disciplinary platform for understanding the significance of current research into the mechanisms of gene expression, including but not limited to transcription, DNA and chromatin modification, RNA processing, and translation.
  • promote cutting edge research and effective communication into the mechanisms of gene expression in disease and normal development
  • identify new biomarkers and therapeutic targets based on the gene expression patterns and mechanisms of gene expression and translate these findings into treatment of human diseases

We hope to expand educational opportunities in these areas through poster sessions, minisymposia and workshops at national and regional meetings. If you wish to participate or have questions or suggestions for our future activities please contact the co-chairs of the SIG.


ASIP Members are invited to participate in the Gene Expression SIG Listserv. Please email to have your name and email address added to the listserv.
