'Genetics, epigenetics and disease', London, UK
2012-11-19 A lecture entitled 'Genetics, epigenetics and disease' will take place on 22 January 2013 in London, UK.
The human genome sequence has been available for more than a decade, but its significance is still not fully understood. Whilst most human genes have been identified, there is still much to learn about the DNA signals that control them.
This lecture will describe an unusually short DNA sequence just two base pairs long - CG - which can take several chemically different forms. Defects in signalling by CG are known for being implicated in disease. The lecture targets scientists specialising in this field and will provide them with an opportunity to exchange on the latest research developments.
