Epigenetics and epitranscriptomics


Epigenetics and epitranscriptomics - from mechanism to cancer

This NKI-OOA symposium will be on Friday May 24, 2019 at the Netherlands Cancer Institute in Amsterdam. The program includes leading international experts in the field and will cover a range of exciting topics, including metabolism and epigenetics, cancer dependencies, cutting edge 'epi'technologies, tRNAs in cancer, mRNA modifications, DNA (hydroxy)methylation, immune cell programming, 3D chromatin structure, epigenetic reprogramming.

The symposium is organized as part of a PhD course of the Oncology Graduate School of Amsterdam (OOA). PhD students of the OOA can register for the course via the OOA website. The symposium is open to the public; attendance is free but registration is required. Please register here.
