Epigenetics Interest Group

Epigenetics represents a new frontier in cancer research. Information in the genome exists in at least two forms, genetic and epigenetic. The genetic information provides the blue print for the manufacture of all the proteins necessary to create a living organism, whereas the epigenetic information provides additional instructions on how, where, and when the genetic information will be used. The focus of the Epigenetics Interest Group is on applications of epigenetic approaches in disease detection, risk assessment and treatment. The group meets on last Thursday of every month from 3-4 pm. Please contact Dr. Mukesh Verma at 240-276-6889 for more information.

Colleagues interested in epigenetics also may benefit from a spring course offered by the NIH FAES, "Biological Importance of Modifications in DNA and Chromatin." The learning objects are to: understand basic concepts behind epigenetics; understand why epigenetics is important to understanding human diseases; and explain how epigenetic mechanisms work. For more information and to register, see https://my.faes.org/Common/CourseSchedule.aspx and search for course BIOC532. The term period is January 22 to June 1, 2018.
