Case studies on Epigenetics in Drug Discovery, Chromatin Development, Disease Diagnostics and Environment

Scientists in different parts of the world are working in pockets and on different areas of epigenetics but they are unaware of the ways to merge this data and use it in a collaborative manner. The Epigenetics Discovery Congress to be held in London - UK on 24 - 25 September 2015 will gather global epigenetics experts under one roof to discuss the latest developments.

Sessions at this conference will help them find out similar areas that other research institutes are working on which will result in successful partnerships. One of the key highlights of this conference is the case studies on Epigenetics in Drug Discovery, Chromatin Development, Disease Diagnostics and Environment.
