NEW EPIGENESYS ACTIVITIES

EpiGene2Sys Meeting 15th – 17th of January 2018, Munich
Watch this space!

The “EpiGeneSys” Network of Excellence has established a framework to catalyse interdisciplinary exchanges and training, as well as to foster the sharing of tools, resources and knowledge. These cohesive efforts have significantly contributed to structuring the European Research Area (ERA) in both epigenetics and systems biology and to advancing our understanding of epigenetic systems. The success of EpiGeneSys demonstrates the effectiveness such large, integrative projects and calls for a continuation of such vital contribution to the sustainability of the ERA through new instruments and continued European funding.
