Description: This 'Open for Business' event follows naturally on the recently completed Newton Institute Workshop "Topological Aspects of DNA Function and Protein Folding", which focussed on the topology of DNA strands and polypeptide chains, and the mechanisms by which the topology can change through the action of site-specific recombinases and topoisomerases. Some key results from this workshop will be reported, and will be followed by keynote lectures by the Master of St John's College, Cambridge and the Master-elect of Trinity College, Cambridge
