EMBL is committed to sharing research advances and sustaining scientific interaction throughout the coronavirus pandemic. We are delighted to announce that this conference is going virtual and invite you to join us online.
 

Symposium Overview

Metabolism and epigenetics are intricately linked, playing a key role in development, cancer, immune signalling and ageing. This symposium brings together world-leading researchers and early-career scientists to explore this nexus with a particular focus on how metabolites and metabolic networks impact gene regulation, on recently discovered roles of metabolites in disease and how this opens novel therapeutic avenues.

We will highlight molecular and computational tools enabling detection of metabolites in time and space, shedding light on metabolism, and linking metabolism with the regulation of chromatin structure, gene activity and epigenetic inheritance. We will explore recent discoveries at the frontiers of metabolism and epigenetics — focusing at the intersection of these topics — achieved in vitro, in model organisms, inhuman, and in the environment. The goal of our interdisciplinary symposium is to strengthen the emerging connection between metabolism and epigenetics, inspire transformational ideas, and help establish collaborations at this frontier of modern biology.
