April 1st-3rd 2019, Munich, DE – Chromatin and Epigenetics: Inheritance and Design

This exciting three day conference  bridges  chromatin mechanisms and epigenetic phenomena – two key pillars of modern biology. The conference will cover the latest advances in the chromatin field, ranging from basic molecular mechanisms of transcriptional regulation to designing and manipulating epigenomes and epigenetic pathways in development, disease and reprogramming across model systems.

Mai 1st-4th 2019, Heidelberg, EMBL – Chromatin and Epigenetics

EMBO Workshop. Asifa Akhtar, Geneviève Almouzni, L. Stirling Churchman, Ana Pombo, Chris Pointing

Epigenetics refers to heritable change in gene expression that does 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 in a European venue. Renowned speakers will cover the latest advances in the field, including chromatin regulation, chromatin dynamics, signalling to chromatin, nuclear architecture and dynamics, developmental epigenetics, epigenomics, epigenetics and human diseases, genome stability, environmental epigenetics, and transgenerational inheritance.
