For over 30 years, this FASEB Science Research Conference (SRC) has covered broad topics relating to DNA, RNA, protein methylation, and the role these epigenetic and post-translational modifications have in development, disease, and cancer. The conference brings together scientists studying diverse aspects of the biochemistry, function, and disease relevance of S-adenosyl-L-methionine (SAMe)-dependent methylation to discuss recent research developments and initiate collaborations. This year’s program will provide ample opportunities for students, fellows, and early-career investigators to interact with leaders in the fields of protein, RNA, and DNA methylation.

The main themes of this FASEB conference are: 1) Protein, DNA, and RNA methylation: 2) Methylation and chromatin regulation in the context of development and disease; 3) Small molecule inhibitors of methyltransferases and demethylases and their therapeutic applications.
