The complete sequences of a number of plant genomes and the advent of high-throughput technologies have, in the past few years, fueled intensive research efforts to unravel the mechanisms underlying gene and genome regulation. It is clear that a host of epigenetic processes including, but not limited to, DNA methylation and various histone modifications, underlie key developmental processes as well as biotic and abiotic interactions. Non-coding RNAs have been increasingly recognized as players in gene expression and genome defense. Various types of subcellular bodies in the nucleus have been identified and associated with transcription factors, RNA processing proteins and epigenetic regulators. Despite these advances, a holistic view of gene and genome regulation at the DNA, RNA, protein, cell biological and developmental levels is still lacking. By bringing together researchers working on various aspects of genome dynamics and gene expression, this symposium on Nuclear Events in Plant Gene Expression and Signaling aims to stimulate the synthesis of an integrative view of nuclear dynamics in plant biology.
