EMBO Workshop — Epigenome inheritance and reprogramming in health and disease
22 Sep 2022 - 26 Sep 2022 • Split, Croatia
European Molecular Biology Organization – EMBO
Over the past decades, we have seen growing evidence that environmental influences such as diet, stress, or trauma, can induce changes in individuals that are inherited by their children and grandchildren, independently of changes in the DNA sequence. This type of inheritance is often referred to as epigenetic inheritance, however, the biological mechanisms behind this phenomenon remain poorly understood. The proposed workshop will bring together experts in the field of epigenetics to discuss how the epigenome is inherited on the cellular, organismal, and population level in diverse biological contexts. Moreover, the workshop will explore how different biological systems achieve the correct balance between epigenome inheritance and reprogramming, and what sort of ramifications this has for developmental processes, disease etiology, adaptation, and evolution. Numerous recent findings in this rapidly developing field have been fueled by the advent of genomics technologies, which offer ever-increasing resolution and precision for epigenome quantification. Our meeting will thus provide a unique opportunity to discuss how these recent advances have reshaped the field and what challenges we might expect as we move forward to unravel how epigenetics participates in fundamental biological processes.

3rd Chromosomal Instability as a Driver of Human Disease Conference
14 Oct 2023 - 17 Oct 2023 • Dubrovnik, Croatia
Fusion Conferences
The maintenance of genome integrity is critical for the suppression of several pathological disorders in humans, including cancer, infertility and neurodegeneration. Moreover, the accumulation of unrepaired errors in DNA is commonly cited as a likely cause of tissue and organismal ageing. Destabilization of the genome can occur as a result of several cell intrinsic or extrinsic factors, including errors arising during DNA replication or chromosome segregation, as well as exposure of cells to agents that induce DNA damage. In this conference, we aim to bring together scientists studying DNA replication, DNA repair and chromosome segregation with those interested in how chromosomal instability can influence human pathology. Moreover, we aim to show how high throughput and high content screening methods can be used as a discovery tool both for basic science applications and to identify potential therapeutic modalities.
