Epigenetics

16th edition

The success of the course relies on the active contribution of participants who are expected to be proactive and to participate in all of the events organized including:

  • presentation of their own scientific project with a poster
  • participation in the Journal Club to both present and review key articles proposed by the speakers,
  • participation to the "career development" workshop during the Saturday morning and the "epi-Courses" such as the “Art & Science” workshop.

A special session will be devoted to 2 or 3 alumni who have gone on to successful careers in the field of Epigenetics. Everything is in English.

Presentation

Objectives

The aim of this course is to provide an overview of epigenetic mechanisms and their link to chromatin dynamics. The different functions of the nucleus involving the genome and its organization will be discussed with an emphasis on technological limits and the new experimental approaches being developed today. Links between the disruption of nuclear functions and the development of human pathologies will be discussed.

The theme of the 2020 Course on Epigenetics will be "Chemo-Biology of the Nucleus".

Workshops

  • Workshop Epigenetic Imagin(in)g.
  • Career Development Workshop organized on Saturday morning by the PhD students of the organizing units.
