Theme: Evolving Landscape of Epigenetics & Therapeutic Approaches for Human Diseases

Human Diseases 2020

Human Diseases 2020


ME Conferences humbly invites all the Epigenetics, Genetics and Oncology researchers, scientists and students from all over the world to attend “2nd International Conference on Epigenetics and Human Diseases" during July 15-16, 2020 at Helsinki, Finland.


Epitranscriptomics is about the structure and function of molecular level genes and it is a relatively new field in the world of genetics. Human genetics is the field of biology that deals with the study of inheritance that occurs in humans and is referred to as genetic diseases due to any mutation or changes in genes. Today gene editing can be used to treat some of the genetic diseases in various ways. It also deals with the study of chromosomes and an organism's gene expression may give insight into an inheritance, genetic variation and mutations.

The main theme of the Human Diseases 2020 conference is: “Analysis of the gene expression system for the epigenetic regulation" which is all about simplifying the complex phenomenon behind Epigenetic mechanism & protein expression and it gives knowledge about transcriptomes in health and diseases & it gives a clear explanation of the principle genome.


Why to Attend Epigenetics and Human Diseases?

Human Diseases 2020 Conference is a novel discourse to join together in generally identified scholastics in the field of hereditary qualities and atomic science Analysts, Open prosperity specialists, Researchers, Scholastic analysts, Industry masters, Researchers to exchange their knowledge about the research.

The point of this gathering is to provide the latest views for treatment that will be valuable over the range of Epitranscriptomics. Importantly, changes in core-regulators of the epitranscriptomes are related to many diseases of human or congenital disorders. It Is Also a Great chance to meet with Members across the World Related Associations, and Societies.

Why Epigenetics and Human Diseases in Finland:

The finest way of travel to Finland’s fascinating history is over a tour of its cities. One such city, Visitors can see this history for themselves in its big architecture and leftovers at Turku Castle and the Aboa Vetus and Ars Nova Museum. when Russia gained control of the country, Helsinki has become the capital city, and till today relics as the capital. It also companies many historical sites. Finland famous for its numerous lakes, Tampere is the major city on the Finnish Lakeland.

Epigenetics is all about the heritable changes in gene expression, which do not involve any changes to the underlying DNA sequence, without a change in genotype a change in phenotype, which in turn affects how cells read the genes. There is a possibility for the natural occurrence of Epigenetic change and it can also be influenced by several factors including age, the environment or lifestyle, and disease state. More damaging effects held by the Epigenetic change, which can result in diseases related to cancer.

Track 7: Plant Epigenetics

In epigenetic regulation plants are masters. By using plants most of the major epigenetic mechanisms known to occur in eukaryotes. In-plant genomes due to CG, CHG, and CHH sequence contexts DNA methylation occurs, in patterns that reflect a balance between enzyme activities that install, maintain or remove methylation. As in other eukaryotes, histone-modifying enzymes influence epigenetic states in plants and these enzymes are encoded by comparatively large gene families, allowing for diversified as well as overlapping functions. RNA-mediated gene silencing is accomplished using multiple distinct pathways to combat viruses, tame transposons, orchestrate development, and help organize the genome. Plants with a multi-layered and robust epigenetic circuitry are provided because of the interplay between DNA methylation, histone modification, and noncoding RNAs.

Track 8: Translational Epigenetics

Cancer epigenetics research is now showing interest in Translational epigenetics. A range of different epigenetic marks can activate or repress gene expression. Epigenetic dysregulation can also have a causal role in cancer etiology, while epigenetic alterations are associated with most cancers. An early role in neoplastic transformations could be presented by epigenetically disrupted stem or progenitor cells, while perturbance of epigenetic regulatory mechanisms controlling gene expression in cancer-relevant pathways will also be a contributing factor. The activity of key cancer genes and pathways can be regulated as a therapeutic approach has a possibility by the reversibility of epigenetic marks. The epigenome functioning can affect a range of chemical agent's availability of growth has led to a range of epigenetic-therapeutic approaches for cancer and intense interest in the second-generation epigenetic drugs development (epi-drugs development) which would have greater specificity and efficacy in clinical settings.

The direct changes in epigenetic marks, such as DNA methylation, commonly found to affect imprinted gene regulation are the reason for disease. The effect either chromatin in trans or have a cis effect in altering chromatin configuration is due to the disease-causing genetic mutations in epigenetic modifiers.

For the study of epigenetic mechanisms, animal models are essential. Researchers must provide the requisite accessibility to sensitive stages of pre- and postnatal development, growth and maturation, and events that approach senescence and death, where organisms are particularly sensitive to epigenetic changes, and provide a fair experimental window for evaluating a wide range of outcomes. During development, all vertebrate organisms control differentiation and growth using epigenetic mechanisms, so it is no wonder that significant changes in their spatial and temporal programming will have a profound impact on the outcomes of life-stages.
