Study programme

This specialisation focuses on the function of our epigenome, a key factor in regulating gene expression and in a wide range of diseases. In the Medical Epigenomics specialisation you won’t zoom in on only one particular gene, protein or signalling pathway. Instead, you’ll regard the cell as one complete system. Key subjects include (epi) genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, autoimmune diseases, cancer, neurological disorders, systems biology and computational biology.
