2011 Autumn Meeting

Friday 11th November 2011
The Royal Society, London

Cancer cell chromosomes

Phenotype and the flexible genome:

the role of epigenetic processes in development and human disease

Epigenetics refers to the study of heritable changes in genome function that occur without a change in primary DNA sequence. Epigenetics is emerging as a critical area of modern research and there have been rapid advances in our understanding of the functional consequences of alterations in epigenetic gene regulation and the response of epigenetic marks to environmental cues. To address these exciting new discoveries, we are hosting a one day meeting that will focus specifically on the phenotypic consequences of alterations in epigenetic gene regulation in mammals.
