For more information on the terms of participation and funding opportunities for this event please access the meeting website or contact the local organisers directly


The Course will approach discussion of the latest biological and technical discoveries in Epigenetics field (DNA methylation, histone(s) post-modifications and non-condin gRNAs expression), within application of practical experiments. Participants will benefit from the given theoretical and practical tools in order to apply them in their respective research.
  • Methylome and Next generation sequencing
  • Mass Spectrometry in histone post-translation modification

  • non-conding RNAs- miRNAs-

  • Microarray- RNAseq analysis



  • Participants are expected to cover their own travel and living costs.

  • A limited number of grants are available to a selected number of nationals of ICGEB Member States.
    The available grants will be allocated in order of priority, according to the ranking achieved in the selection process.
