1 DAY EPIGENETICS: APPLICATIONS AND ANALYSIS Target audience: Beginners to Medium experienced qPCR users Entrance qualifications: Basic Molecular biology or similar Description: This course gives an introduction to epigenetics and its applications. The course consists of a theoretical part that describes the mechanism of inheritance and how that is expressed in methylation, acetylation and phosphorylation patterns. The course will go into how different experiments can be set up and used including HRM, microarrays and qPCR. The course also consists of a practical part where the participants will run epigenetic experiments. The course contains: Introduction to epigenetics Applications in epigenetics Techniques for epigenetic analysis including qPCR, HRM and microarrays Experimental design Practical experiment Data analysis and interpretation Emerging research
