This exciting 2 day conference will bridge epigenetic mechanisms and stem cell biology. The aim is to bring together researchers of both fields with a focus on the role of epigenetic mechanisms in cellular differentiation and adult stem cell systems.
. DNA methylation and demethylation in stem cells
. Polycomb complexes in tissue stem cell differentiation
. Establishment of chromatin marks in development
. Epigenetics and cell proliferation
. Noncoding RNAs as epigenetic regulators

Abstracts for oral and poster presentations which fit the conference theme are invited.
