Animal Epigenetics

The subject matter for the Animal Epigenetics Workshop includes classic epigenetics topics such as DNA and chromatin modifications, chromosomal imprinting, parent-of–origin or allele-specific genetic effects as well as more broadly defined topics including genetic regulation, reprogramming and non-coding RNA.
