June 7 - 8, 2017 (Wednesday - Thursday)

 
Regulome Poster

It is now possible to define global profiles of gene expression (transcriptome) down to single cell resolution and access epigenetic modifications of the genome (epigenome) which link to the identification of regulatory elements in the genome. Through a series of research talks and technical workshops, by international experts, this Advanced Study Workshop aims to update researchers on the latest advances in dissecting gene regulatory circuits on a genomic scale that drive a cell from one functional state to the next during development, growth and disease. The Advanced Study Workshop will cover the latest approaches to access dynamic changes in genomic architecture, gene expression in single cells and the emerging roles of non-coding RNAs, for the construction of hierarchical models of the pathways and gene regulatory network changes that drive the differentiation process or pathogenic mechanisms.

The Advanced Study Workshop will be open to all, but places in the hands-on practical workshops will be limited to registered participants. Registered participants will also have the opportunity to present their work and discuss with the experts.
