EMBL Course: Chromatin Signatures During Differentiation: Integrated Omics Approaches to Neuronal Development

This course integrates omics approaches to understand the principle of chromatin operation and its biological relevance. We will analyse the composition and variation of chromatin components, and the “epigenetic landscape” at key time points following the induction of cellular differentiation.
