Epigenetics refers to the control mechanisms that determine which genes are turned on or off in eukaryotic organisms. Epigenetics is fundamental to normal development and an organism’s response to the environment while its dysregulation is linked to disease conditions. This interdisciplinary meeting brought together chemists and biologists that are internationally leading in cutting edge areas of epigenetics.
