The Human Epigenomics course from Erasmus University Rotterdam offers an overview of epigenetic mechanisms and their importance during development and over the life course. Different sources of epigenomic variation will be discussed, as well as approaches to characterize epigenomic variability with the use of modern molecular and bioinformatics methods.
The course will then focus on epigenomic studies of human disease, to enable participants to interpret the findings in modern epigenetic research and put these into a functional perspective.
After completing the course, students should be able to:
