The aim of the meeting is to present and discuss the latest findings regarding the mechanisms of emergence and consequences of chromosomal translocations that present major implications for our understanding of cancer etiology, onset, evolution and therapy. The meeting will be organized in three sessions:

  1. Origins and mechanisms of chromosomal translocation formation
  2. Toward a faithful modelling of chromosomal translocations
