Chromatin and Epigenetics May 2017

EMBL Heidelberg, Germany
3 - 6 May 2017
Why attend?

The principal objective of this conference series is to provide an international forum for cutting edge research in chromatin and epigenetics. This conference provides “the focal hub” for people to present their research and exchange ideas in a European venue. The organising team assembles top speakers covering the latest advances in the field, incorporating diversity in every sense (gender, geography etc). The overarching goal of this conference series is to cover chromatin regulation, chromatin dynamics, signalling to chromatin, nuclear architecture and dynamics, developmental epigenetics, epigenomics, epigenetics and human diseases, genome stability, environmental epigenetics, and transgenerational inheritance. We also include talks on latest approaches for studying these biological questions, including functional genomics, system biology and super resolution microscopy.

The Non-Coding Genome Sep. 2017

EMBL Heidelberg, Germany
Wednesday 13 September - Saturday 16 September 2017


This symposium will explore the diverse, dynamic and multifaceted roles of RNA across a spectrum of cellular processes. It will provide an interdisciplinary discussion of the roles of non-coding RNAs in both prokaryotes and eukaryotes, with the aim of enhancing our understanding of gene regulation and function.


Non-coding RNAs in prokaryotes
miRNAs: biogenesis, function and mechanisms
siRNAs and piRNAs
Transcriptional silencing and dosage compensation
Gene silencing in plants
Long non-coding RNAs


Mammalian Genetics and Genomics: From Molecular Mechanisms to Translational Applications Oct. 2017

EMBL Heidelberg, Germany
24 - 27 Oct 2017
Why attend?

The EMBL Conference Mammalian Genetics and Genomics: From Molecular Mechanisms to Translational Applications is jointly organised with the International Mammalian Genome Society (IMGS) and the Mouse Molecular Genetics (MMG) meeting. This meeting will provide an international forum for the sharing of cutting-edge research in genetics and genomics that addresses fundamental areas of mammalian biology. The conference will include presentations by established and junior investigators, including trainees, and will include trainee mentoring events, workshops, and networking opportunities within a stimulating and welcoming environment.
