3 March 2017
Time: 2:00 - 6:00pm
The London Epigenomics Club and the London Chromatin Club join forces for the second time to bring you an afternoon of great science. We will have four talks from an excellent line up of invited speakers focusing on the interface between epigenetics and metabolism. We will also have six short talks from submitted abstracts on various exciting topics. After the talks (6pm) we will serve some food and drinks to keep the discussion going.
