Environmental Epigenetics – From Mechanisms to Regulation

21-22 February 2019, Örebro, Sweden


Epigenetics is a regulating mechanism of gene expression, which allows different phenotypes without changes in DNA sequence. This is specifically critical for embryonic development since epigenetic mechanisms control cell differentiation processes. Thus, there has been growing concern that epigenetic modifications by pollutants mediate adverse health outcomes at later live stages and/or over several generations, e.g. cancer, developmental toxicity, and behavioural disorders.

The workshop will focus on environmental aspects of epigenetic alterations including current knowledge about epigenetic mechanisms, adverse outcome pathway of epigenetic alterations, data handling, and regulatory aspects.
