Epigenomics of Common Diseases Virtual Conference
November 18 2020 @ 1:00 PM - November 20 2020 @ 7:00 PM
The 9th Epigenomics of Common Diseases conference invites 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.
The conference will cover a broad spectrum of epigenomic discoveries, opportunities and challenges in human normal biology and in disease.
Topics will include:
- Single cell & technology
- Epigenetic classifiers
- Chromatin regulation in disease
- Population studies
- Multi ‘omics’ and integrative epigenomics
- Reference annotation
Abstract deadline is 22nd September 2020, registration deadline is 11th November 2020. Please see the Wellcome Genome Campus website for more information.
