Organizers EMBL
Location Online

EMBL is committed to sharing research advances and sustaining scientific interaction throughout the coronavirus pandemic. We are delighted to announce that the conference is going virtual and invite you to join us online. The virtual conference includes live talks from invited speakers, short talk presenters, digital poster sessions and networking opportunities.

Conference Overview
Epigenetics refers to heritable changes in gene expression that do not involve changes to the underlying DNA sequence. At least three systems including DNA methylation, histone modifications and non-coding RNAs (ncRNA) are considered to play fundamental roles in epigenetic regulation. Research over the last two decades has uncovered the role of epigenetics in a variety of human disorders and fatal diseases. Moreover influence of age, environment, lifestyle, and disease state on epigenetic states is being increasingly appreciated and actively studied. This conference provides an international forum for cutting edge research in chromatin and epigenetics. It provides the “focal hub” for people to present their research and exchange ideas in a virtual format. Renowned speakers will cover the latest advances in the field.
