Investigating Causes of Epigenomic and Genomic Errors

Germline Exposures March3, 2016 Webinar


Upcoming webinar, March 3, 2016, 1-3pm EST: “Environmental Exposures and the Germline: Investigating Causes of Epigenomic and Genomic ErrorsRegister here.

As evidence mounts that some forms of autism are driven by “de novo” errors in the germline (genomic glitches not present in either parent), the question arises: what environmental factors might contribute to this phenomenon? Leading researchers will delve into questions of germline plasticity, genotoxic exposures, and molecular events that affect DNA.
