A one-day meeting exploring how genome organization and epigenome function contribute to regulation of gene expression and cellular identities
Université Paris Diderot, France
May 31, 2018
Exploring the determinants of identity raises significant challenges with far-reaching consequences for both our fundamental understanding of living systems and our ability to intervene clinically to re-establish identity in pathological scenarios. Genomes and epigenomes respond dynamically to changes in the local environment, contributing to defining identities and transmitting memories to subsequent generations. This interplay creates the complexity and adaptability that define living systems. During the one-day symposium, we will discuss how genome organization and epigenome function contribute to the regulation of gene expression and cellular identities.
