This exciting three day conference will build a bridge between chromatin mechanisms and epigenetic phenomena - two key pillars of modern biology. This conference will cover the latest advances in the chromatin field, ranging from basic molecular mechanisms of transcriptional regulation to complex epigenetic pathways in development, disease and reprogramming across model systems.


  • Chromatin dynamics
  • Epigenomics and single cell approaches
  • Histone, RNA and DNA modifications
  • Shaping chromatin with ncRNA
  • Epigenetic phenomena
