We are pleased to announce the 8th Epigenomics of Common Diseases conference and invite scientists working on experimental and computational epigenomics and epigenetics to showcase the latest developments in the field and discuss epigenomic approaches in common human diseases.

Epigenetic variation plays an important role in disease processes and provides a promising focus for disease prediction, prevention and treatment. Technological advancements in the past few years have fuelled a dramatic increase in the scale, breadth and availability of epigenomic reference maps, including populational and environmental epigenomic datasets.

This year’s conference will cover a broad spectrum of epigenomic discoveries, opportunities, and also challenges, in human normal biology and in disease.
