171. Basic Epigenetic Mechanisms in Cancer - 8-11 November 2015, Berlin

This conference will cover some of the most recent advances and cutting edge research in the field of epigenetics and its relationship to cancer. We have created a programme that brings together basic scientists with translational and clinical researchers. During the meeting, there will be great opportunities for young scientists to meet the experts in the field, and we aim to create an open and engaging environment for discussion. Recent advances in technology allow us to consider the epigenome as well as the genome of a tumour on an individual level. These advances, in combination with high throughput technologies, are leading to rapid advances in the development of epigenetic biomarkers and novel therapeutic targets. [read more]

179. EGI Community Forum 2015: Building Next Generation e-Infrastructures through Communities - 10-13 November 2015, Bari, Italy

The EGI Community Forum aims at gathering tool developers, infrastructure providers, data providers and research communities to work together towards open science. Nowadays, research practice is increasingly - and in many cases exclusively - data driven. Knowledge of how to use tools to manipulate research data, and the availability of e-infrastructures to support them, are foundational. Along with this, new types of communities are forming around interests in digital tools, computing facilities and data repositories. By making infrastructure services, community engagement and training inseparable, existing communities can be empowered by new ways of doing research, and new communities can be created around tools and data. (Registration opening in July. [read more]
