Joint Meeting: Epigenomics (Z2)

Summary of Meeting:
DNA methylation is essential for mammalian development and plays an important regulatory role in many organisms including plants. Major advances have been made in functionally studying the key players involved in establishing and maintaining DNA methylation as well as mapping its genome-wide location. Many gaps remain toward a complete understanding in particular in diseases. In this meeting experts in the field provide the latest insights from plants to mammalian development. A further focus is the relevance of DNA methylation for cancer biology and how it may lead to more advanced diagnostics and treatments in the clinic.
