Developing a global understanding of the PRC and NuRD complexes in stem cell differentiation and in disease


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)
