Abstract

The conference will cover the role of epigenetics in developmental processes from the level of individual cells to whole organisms. A central theme of the conference will be to explore how the epigenomic landscape changes between fertilisation and differentiation, what regulates these changes and what is their developmental significance. Included in this is how epigenetics contributes to developmental patterning. For example, what epigenetic regulators are important in lineage specification, how do they exert their function and how do cell-cell interactions transmit signals to the epigenome. The contribution of chromatin structure to developmental processes and the molecular mechanisms that regulate these changes will also be addressed.
