Connecting European Neuroscience

Neuroepigenetics: reading, writing and erasing the genome

22 November-10 December 2021 – Bordeaux School of Neuroscience, France

This course is a theoretical and practical training on the recently emerged field of neuroepigenetics. It will provide an overview of the current concepts and knowledge on the nature and functions of the epigenome in the nervous system, its modes of regulation and its link to brain health and disease. It will combine lectures and hands-on projects to learn about state-of-the-art approaches and methodologies to study how the epigenome is established and modulated by behaviour in rodents and invertebrates, what machinery is involved and what is its causal relationship to functions. It will include methods in behaviour, epigenetics, (epi)genome editing, molecular and cell biology, -omics and bioinformatics.

This course wishes to foster the development of neuroepigenetics as a key discipline in the neurosciences, and train and educate young researchers expected to contribute to the field in the near future. It is intended for PhD students and early career postdocs who wish to acquire good bases and broad knowledge of the field.
