2019 Conference themes
In Dunedin 2019, the Asian Conference on Transcription will include cutting-edge research in genetic and epigenetic mechanisms of gene transcription in prokaryotes and eukaryotes, chromatin structure, cancer biology, antimicrobial resistance, developmental biology, and genomics.
We can’t wait to welcome you to beautiful Dunedin, New Zealand, in December 2019 for an exciting meeting on all things transcriptional!

History of the Conference
The Asian Conference on Transcription was conceived and started by five eminent scientists:
- Professor Ken Wu of Taiwan
- Professor Akira Ishihama of Japan
- Professor Changwon Kang of Korea
- Professor Padmanabhan of India
- Professor John Pittard of Australia
The first Asian Conference on Transcription was held in Taipei in 1990. Since then, the spirit of the conference has been embraced by new generations of scientists from the Asia-Pacific region, including Malaysia, China, Thailand, Singapore, and New Zealand.
The Asian Conference on Transcription’s traditional focus on basic transcriptional mechanisms is expanding to reflect new insights into genome biology.
