Detailed information about this course:
Faculty: Jordana Bell, PhD
This course is formerly known as Epigenetics.
This course aims to give an introduction to epigenetics and epigenomic studies of human disease. The course offers an overview of epigenetic mechanisms and their importance during development and over the life course. Different sources of epigenomic variation will be discussed, as well as approaches to characterize epigenomic variability with the use of modern molecular and bioinformatics methods. The course will then focus on epigenomic studies of human disease, to enable participants to interpret the findings in modern epigenetic research and put these into a functional perspective.
A laptop is required for computer exercises during the course.
