Epigenomics as a Discovery Tool in Current Biology

The epigenetic control of gene expression is increasingly recognized as a vital regulatory layer defining cell function and identity. New technological developments based upon next-generation sequencing are now enabling epigenetics researchers to address questions on a genome-wide basis and to elucidate general principles of epigenetic gene regulation.

This workshop, co-organised by the EpiGeneSys European Community network of excellence, runs from Thursday 19 to Friday 20 September 2013 and will provide participants with an introduction to state-of-the-art experimental methods, computational analyses and applications of epigenomics technologies.
