Fall in San Diego means great weather, uncrowded beaches, and lovely surf, which means we’re not leaving. That’s good news for you though as we’re sending our community members to cover these great upcoming conferences.
Please have a look at each of these and respond using the form at the footer of this post if you’re interested. Regardless of outcome, we will get back in touch with you within 7 days.
BLUEPRINT | IHEC 2016 (Sept 7 | Brussels, Belgium)
On Wednesday September 7, the Annual Meeting of the IHEC working groups and internal discussions will take place. Thursday September 8 and Friday September 9 will be a conference, also open to the broader scientific community, dedicated to disseminate the major outcomes of the BLUEPRINT project as well as state-of-the art research in the field of epigenomics and closely-related areas.
2nd Annual Epigenetics Discovery Congress (Sept 8 | London, UK)
At the 2nd Annual Epigenetics Discovery Congress which will be held on 8-9 September, 2016 in London – UK, researchers, academics and industry professionals working in epigenetic research can avail an opportunity to explore the potential of epigenetics to contribute towards novel and existing therapeutics, current progress and trends in the inclusion of epigenetics in drug discovery and development.
FEBS Chromatin Proteomics workshop (Oct 3 | Heraklion, Crete, Greece)
The goal of this workshop is to foster scientific exchange between scientists working on the chromatin proteome, the dynamic behavior of proteins in the nucleus and the integration and visualization of protein and DNA networks. There will be dedicated sessions on the proteomic analysis of histone modifications, of defined chromosomal domains and of functional proteomics together with sessions on quantitative proteomics, emerging technologies and bioinformatic analysis of large proteomic datasets and their visualization, with lectures given by leading researchers in the field. There will also be two poster sessions and several short oral presentations by junior researchers that will be selected from the abstracts.
Danube Conference on Epigenetics (Oct 5 | Budapest, Hungary)
Following the success of the previous Epigenetic Conferences in Budapest (2012 and 2014) we are delighted to announce that the next Danube Conference on Epigenetics will be held October 5-8th, 2016 again in Budapest. The conference is organized by Tamás Arányi (RCNS, Hungary), Bálint L. Bálint (University of Debrecen, Hungary), Petra Hajkova (MRC Clinical Sciences Centre and Imperial College London, UK), Ana Pombo (Max Delbrück Centre, Germany) and Laszlo Tora (IGBMC, France).
Epigenetics in Development (Oct 20 | Mainz, Germany)
The conference will cover the role of epigenetics in developmental processes from the level of individual cells to whole organisms. A central theme of the conference will be to explore how the epigenomic landscape changes between fertilization and differentiation, what regulates these changes and what is their developmental significance. Included in this is how epigenetics contributes to developmental patterning.
