Non-coding RNA, epigenetics and transgenerational inheritance

Epigenetic information can be maintained after cell division, can spread between cells and can even pass through the germ line from one generation to the next. This meeting will focus on our current understanding of the mechanisms of establishing, communicating and maintaining epigenetic information. We will discuss the roles of DNA methylation, chromatin marks, piRNAs, lincRNAs etc. This meeting covers yeast, plants, invertebrates and vertebrates including humans. Join us to discuss the current state of this emerging field.

* transgenerational epigenetics
