Epigenetics, Development and Human Disease
Organizer(s): Anne Ferguson-Smith and Steven Henikoff
Date: January 05 - 10, 2009
Location: Beaver Run Resort, Breckenridge, CO, USA
Supported by the Directors' Fund
Summary of Meeting:
This meeting aims to provide a stimulating forum for exploring the epigenetic control of genome function illustrated through the regulation of a variety of biological processes in a range of model organisms. The role of factors influencing chromatin organization and chromosome architecture, and the dynamic changes in epigenetic state that regulate development, are two well-established but fast-moving areas that will be covered. The dynamic nature of epigenetic states renders them both adaptable and vulnerable; this will be explored in sessions considering the influence of the environment on epigenetic control, and the causes and consequences of epigenetic change in disease. We anticipate that the data presented will allow evolutionary insights and functional comparison of epigenetic mechanisms in different organisms and systems, resulting in the integration of ideas to generate new concepts and a deeper understanding in this field.
