Annual Symposium: Epigenetic mechanisms in development and disease

Annual Symposium: Epigenetic mechanisms in development and disease

9 September, 2012

11—13 December 2012

University of Leeds,

A Biochemical Society Annual Symposium

 

Meeting background

 

Epigenetic mechanisms play pivotal roles in development, differentiation and cell identity. Epigenetic regulation is influenced by factors such as nutrition and inappropriate epigenetic regulation contributes to diseases such as diabetes and cancer. This meeting will cover our current understanding of epigenetic modifications and the functional role they play in regulating development and contributing to disease biology.

 

Topics

  • DNA methylation
  • Gene regulation
  • Histone modifications
  • Non-coding RNA
  • Stem cell fate
  • Imprinting
  • Epigenomics

Abstract submission deadline: 9 October 2012.

Abstract submission is now available.

 

Earlybird registration deadline: 12 November 2012.
Online registration is now available.
Oral communication slots are available at this meeting. All attendees, particularly researchers in the early stages of their career, are invited to submit a poster abstract for consideration as an oral communication.
