Epigenetic Mechanisms Across Scales: From Molecules to Environment and Evolution

Epigenetic Mechanisms Across Scales: From Molecules to Environment and Evolution

Date: July 21-26, 2019
Event Location: Holderness School, 33 Chapel Lane, Holderness, NH, US
Description: The epigenetics field stands on a strong foundation based on analysis of deviations from genetic rules. In recent years, we have witnessed an ever-growing interest in the mechanisms underlying epigenetic phenomena, along with novel approaches to study them. At our 2019 GRC on Epigenetics, we will cover fundamental aspects of epigenetic memory and inheritance, genome evolution, and the regulatory impact of repetitive elements, as well as our current understanding of the principles of nuclear organization and gene regulation. These topics will include environmental influences and novel biophysical and quantitative approaches, and will feature different model systems and experimental strategies.
