8th course on Epigenetics - 2012

The aim of this course is to provide an overview of the epigenetic mechanisms and their link to chromatin dynamics. The different functions of the nucleus involving the genome and its organization will be discussed with an emphasis on the technological limits and the new experimental approaches developed today. Links between the disruption of nuclear function and the development of human pathologies will be discussed.

Organizers: Geneviève Almouzni and Nathalie Dostatni
