Description

Epigenetic information can be maintained after cell division, can spread between cells and can even pass through the germ line from one generation to the next. This meeting will focus on our current understanding of the mechanisms of establishing, communicating and maintaining epigenetic information. We will discuss the roles of DNA methylation, chromatin marks, piRNAs, lincRNAs etc. This meeting covers yeast, plants, invertebrates and vertebrates including humans. Join us to discuss the current state of this emerging field.

This conference will focus on the emerging field of transgenerational epigenetic inheritance. It will cover DNA methylation, chromatin and non-coding RNA pathways.

Topics:

* transgenerational epigenetics * environmental RNAi * mobile RNA * piRNA * non-coding RNA * chromatin * DNA methylation
