Each mammalian cell has the same genes, yet performs distinct functions. This is achieved by epigenetic control of gene expression; the switching on and switching off of genes. This course will cover the principles of epigenetic control of gene expression, how epigenetic control contributes to cellular differentiation and development, and how it goes wrong in disease.

A basic understanding of genetics is helpful. Given that understanding, anyone with an interest in cell biology, physiology, and/or pathology (cancer and more) can gain enormously from this course.
