Because the study of epigenetics explores scientific realms beyond the determination of chromosome sequences of model organisms, it is one of the most exciting and fastest growing research areas within the fields of genetics and developmental biology. Remarkable progress elucidating the molecular mechanisms behind epigenetic gene regulation has been made in the past few years. The diverse mechanisms that contribute to epigenetic processes include DNA methylation, histone post-translational modifications, DNA elimination and rearrangements, protein-protein interactions, RNA-mediated gene silencing, physical interactions among genes and the three-dimensional organization of chromosomes within the nucleus. At the 2011 Epigenetics Gordon Research Conference, leading researchers from around the world will discuss these, and many other, aspects of epigenetic regulation in diverse species, including mammals, plants, fungi, ciliates, worms and insects.
