Epigenetics, chromatin structure and epitranscriptomics

Don't miss the opportunity to present and hear from the top researchers in the field of Epigenetics, during our one-day meeting in North Carolina this February 16, 2018.

Hamner Conference Center
Durham, North Carolina, US

​What to expect

This one day meeting will cover a broad range of topics touching on gene regulation in an informal atmosphere. The meeting will have 11 speakers, a lunch and learn ChIP workshop, poster session and reception. 

Topics include:
•    Epigenetic determinants of transcription in health and in disease
•    RNA modification as a regulator of transcript function
•    lncRNA regulation and function
•    long range chromatin structure
•    nuclear receptors and chromatin remodeling
