EMBO Conference Series - Chromatin and Epigenetics
|Event Date/Time: Jun 01, 2011||End Date/Time: Jun 05, 2011|
The topics will include themes such as chromatin dynamics, non-coding RNAs, reprogramming, genomic stability as well as influence of environmental signals in regulation of complex regulatory networks.
Furthermore, while epigenetics and the core themes will still form the fundamental basis, the connection of epigenetics with systems biology is still in its infancy. To answer one of the big epigenetic questions such as â€œplasticity versus stabilityâ€ it is high time to also look with the eyes of systems biology as it offers great potential for future translational and medical research. The list of invited speakers has been extended to include leading experts in functional genomics/systems biology that are also interested in the area of epigenetics.
We hope the conference will provide an ideal platform for interaction, discussions and collaborations between the two fields.
Overall we aim to provide to the international community one of the scientific highlights of the year where mainstream results will be presented by international speakers, complemented by poster presentations and talks selected among the submitted abstracts.
