This intriguing, rapidly developing field represents the complex modifications involved in gene expression.  Our speakers will provide a detailed insight into the critical processes of DNA methylation, chromatin remodelling and RNA transcripts, with particular emphasis on the epigenetic mechanisms that cause pathology and the improved screening and biomarker methods used for qualitative and quantitative analysis.

Other conference tracks at this event include RNAi & miRNA, Advances in qPCR and Agrigenomics. Registered delegates will have access to all four meetings ensuring a very cost-effective trip.

In addition the event will also host a cutting edge training course and two business tutorials.

Agenda Topics

  • Chromatin mechanism in epigenetic marking
  • Epigenetic processes in disease, epigenomics
  • Epigenetic re-programming, stem cells and genome dynamics
  • Non-coding RNA and gene silencing
  • Nuclear dynamics and long-range control
  • Parental imprinting, dosage compensation and monoallelic expression
