The Annual EpiCSA Research Meeting

We are pleased to announce the date and preliminary details for the Epigenetics Consortium of South Australia’s first annual research meeting!

Our guest plenary speaker for the event will be ARC Future Fellow & University of Western Australia Professor Ryan Lister.


Ryan is a research leader at the ARC CoE Plant Energy Biology & Laboratory Head of Epigenetics and Genomics at the Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research, and is a world-leader in the study of Epigenetic dynamics during cellular reprogramming, differentiation, and development, as well as the study of Epigenetic reprogramming.

We will send out a call for abstract submission in the next week. Stay tuned to for additional details.

We hope to see you all in October!




EpiCSA’s Second 2016 Workshop: Bioinformatics & DNA Methylation Analysis

Registrations are now open for EpiCSA’s 2nd workshop of 2016: Bioinformatics & DNA Methylation Analysis. This event is generously sponsored by the University of Adelaide’s Bioinformatics Hub.

The event is limited to only 50 people due to the the hands-on computer tutorial space, so do not miss out! You can now register at our eventbrite link

If you haven’t done so already,  please complete our future Epigenetics Workshop survey:
