Dear all,
ASHBi will hold the ASHBi SignAC Workshop: High-content epigenome analysis in the next phase on 15 May 2024
The epigenomic state of individual cells is controlled across multiple dimensions, and elucidating this state requires the integration of various analytical techniques. In this workshop, we will focus on remarkable advancements in such analytical techniques, including long-range genomic DNA molecule analysis, spatial analysis techniques, and temporal change analysis techniques, inviting leading researchers from both domestic and international fields to lecture. We will then discuss the prospects for the future integration of these analytical techniques.

April 8-10, 2024 - Symposium
April 11-13, 2024 - Workshop

Venue: Tokyo, Japan

Research of major public health significance is being advanced through large population health and disease cohorts and other approaches for discovery of biological markers of chronic and infectious disease. These efforts are powered by advances in technologies underpinning large-scale biology, and in quantitative methods, many based on new advances in computing technologies, that permit exploration of the underlying causality. We will discuss these advances and how they are giving rise to new understanding of disease pathogenesis that will be transformative for enabling new treatments against a wide spectrum of diseases. The speakers include academic and industry scientists who are leading breakthrough work on RNA-based medicine that has already had a profound impact for health. Related social issues and policy frameworks that are critical to the success of these endeavours will be addressed.

The symposium & Workshop will provide an opportunity to learn in-depth about UK Biobank, which is the world’s leading population health study to link genomics, proteomics, metabolomics and imaging to health and environmental/lifestyle information databases on large-scale, and how the UK Biobank data can be accessed and exploited by academic and industry researchers worldwide.
