The 4th Wellcome Trust Epigenomics of Common Diseases conference will be held at the University Arms Hotel, Cambridge, UK on 28-31 October 2014.
The conference will bring together leading scientists from the fields of epigenomics, genetics and bioinformatics to discuss the latest developments in this fast-moving field.
The focus of the conference will be on epigenomic studies across a wide range of common and other diseases. It will explore the validation and replication of epigenome-wide association studies, and discuss the latest functional studies and model systems to understand epigenomic regulation. The 2014 programme will also include a debate on transgenerational epigenetic inheritance.
Abstracts can be submitted from all areas relevant to epigenetic and epigenomic research. Several oral presentations will be chosen from the abstracts submitted.
Topics will include:
- Epigenomics of disease
- Model systems: animal and cellular models
- Epigenetic gene regulation
- Epigenetic epidemiology
- Transgenerational epigenomics
- Integration of genomics and epigenomics
- Informatics and technology
- Environmental epigenomics
