Latest asked questions
Do methyl groups that are attached to DNA get copied in DNA replication?
Yes they do! And this ability of methyl groups to be copied at each round of DNA replication is what makes DNA methylation “epigenetics”: the information carried by these methyl groups is…
How do epigenetics bypass reprogamming on imprinted genes?
Well, it depends on which “reprogramming” you think. There are two waves of reprogramming occurring in mammals: one in the precursors of the future oocytes and spermatozoa (germline reprogramming)…

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, […]
EpiGeneSys – shaping the future of epigenetics research in Europe
“ Its becoming clear that systems biology is something that epigenetics is going to have to get a handle on ” – Edith Heard, Group Leader, Institut Curie, Paris, France
