Epigenetics: Where Life Meets the Genome
Royal Society, 6-9 Carlton House Terrace, London SW1Y 5AG, UK
10 November 2010 - 10am-5.30pm
The Annual Conference of the Galton Institute.
The conference will focus on epigenetics - the science of enduring changes in the pattern of gene activity, during embryo development and beyond, that do not involve alteration of the DNA sequence.
The event's closing presentation will be given by Progress Educational Trust (PET) Founding Chair of Trustees Professor Marcus Pembrey.
Attendance is free but advance booking is required. To register, contact Betty Nixon at or on +44 (0)20 8874 7257.
