Miami 2011 Winter Symposium : Epigenetics in Development and Disease

February 6-9, 2011, JW Marriott Marquis Hotel Miami, Miami, FL, USA

August 25, 2010





Recent years have witnessed rapid progress in elucidating the role of epigenetic modifications in nuclear organization and chromosome packaging, profoundly impacting our understanding of development, disease and natural variation.

An increasingly diverse picture is emerging of the range of epigenetic mechanisms involved in regulating these processes, from DNA methylation and histone modification to non-coding RNAs, chromatin remodeling and interactions of higher order chromosome structures. Concurrently, rapid progress is being made in the development of technologies that facilitate the analysis of genome-wide epigenetic changes as well as the genetic and chemical means for experimentally manipulating cellular reprogramming and epigenetic modifications in stem and somatic cells.

The 44th Miami Winter Symposium will bring together leaders in the field to address key aspects of the mechanisms of epigenetic regulation, cellular reprogramming, development and disease.

Organizers :

  • University Biochemistry & Molecular Biology Foundation Inc.
  • Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center at the University of Miami
  • Scripps Florida
  • Nature Publishing Group

Early booking : until November 18, 2010
