EpiGeneSys / 4DCellFate workshop 2013: Epigenetics in Cancer, from bench to computer
Joint EpiGeneSys and 4DCellFate workshop for students and post-docs
A workshop on Epigenetics in Cancer: from bench to computer was held for students and post-docs from the EU 4DCellFate and EpiGeneSys FP7 projects. This workshop featured several distinguished speakers, including Ramin Shiekhatter (Wistar Institute, Baltimore), Luciano Di Croce (CRG, Barcelona) and Manel Esteller (IDIBELL, Barcelona).
The topics covered included:
recent discoveries in the field of cancer epigenetics
epigenetic studies using high-throughput approaches
bioinformatic tools needed to integrate large datasets
role of lncRNAs in cancer
Participants will have time to network between projects and to interact with the speakers in smaller group sessions.
All costs will be covered by the organizers, but registration is required; the deadline to register is April 11 (closed)
