EMBL Conference: Chromatin and epigenetics
May 15 to May 18
This conference will take place at EMBL Heidelberg, with the option to attend virtually. Please see EMBL’s COVID-19 safety policy for testing and other requirements if attending the on-site event.
Epigenetics refers to heritable changes in gene expression that do not involve changes to the underlying DNA sequence. At least three systems including DNA methylation, histone modifications and non-coding RNAs (ncRNA) are considered to play fundamental roles in epigenetic regulation.
Research over the last two decades has uncovered the role of epigenetics in a variety of human disorders and fatal diseases. Moreover influence of age, environment, lifestyle, and disease state on epigenetic states is being increasingly appreciated and actively studied.
This conference provides an international forum for cutting edge research in chromatin and epigenetics. It provides the “focal hub” for people to present their research and exchange ideas. Renowned speakers will cover the latest advances in the field.
- Developmental epigenetics
- Chromatin regulation
- Transcription and chromatin defects and diseases
- Nuclear architecture
- Single cell genomics
