Abstract

The recent Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory meeting 'Mechanisms of Eukaryotic Transcription' was a potent reminder of the astounding depth and complexity of the biological world. Despite years of intensive study and the extraordinary advances that have been made, transcriptional regulation remains a vibrant area of research that retains its ability to inspire and to surprise. Indeed, for the 470 participants who crammed into the Laboratory's Grace auditorium, this meeting served up a unique assortment of talks that not only answered many long-standing questions in the transcription field, but also broke important new ground. In this report, we present just a small sample of the many exciting and provocative stories that were described at this meeting. These stories reveal that new discoveries are still being made in transcription and that some of our oldest and dearest friends still have a few surprises in store.
