8th Annual Epigenetics Course held at Institut Curie in March of 2012

32 Masters and PhD students from all over Europe, many of them from EpiGeneSys labs, came to Paris to take part in the 8th edition of the popular course at the Institute Curie. For a whole week the participants attended scientific lectures, both didactic and presenting the latest research, listened to talks on topics such as the peer review process or how to optimize the chances for publication, […]

Videos of keynote speakers in Vienna – Hiroyuki Sasaki
Hiroyuki Sasaki's keynote lecture was on the regulatory network of small RNAs and DNA methylation in mouse germ cells. They've recently shown a role for piRNAs in paternal imprinting in male spermatogonia, in work published in Science in 2011.

Videos of keynote speakers in Vienna – Susan Gasser

Susan Gasser spoke about nuclear organization in cell type commitment in C.elegans at the EpiGeneSys Annual Meeting in Vienna in November, 2011. They've established a method to visually observe gene tethering at the nuclear envelope via live imaging, and have contributed important mechanistic insights using this technique, which Susan elaborates on in her keynote address.
