EpiChrom 2019 – from Genotype to Phenotype Swedish Epigenetics and Chromatin Meeting

The overall aim of the “EpiChrom 2019 meeting” is to promote scientific exchange and synergies across the fields of epigenetics and chromatin biology by getting together leading established and upcoming scientists to discuss and exchange the most recent advances in epigenetics and chromatin biology and the latest cutting-edge technologies to tackle them. Among the topics to be covered:

  • Clinical epigenetics and disease modelling
  • Molecular epigenetics and chromatin
  • Computational (epi)genomics
  • 3D genome organisation
  • Gene regulation and transcriptomics
  • Developmental biology and animal models
  • Systems biology and multiscale omics
  • Structural biology and molecular biophysics
  • Molecular biology and biochemistryThis conference is free of charge.
