What is epigenetics? The course begins by answering this with a brief overview of the subject and a look at the difference between neuroepigenetics and traditional epigenetics.
You’ll learn about a crucial concept in epigenetics – modifications. We’ll look at various types of modifications, including DNA methylation, histone acetylation, histone modification, nucleosome positioning and RNA-based regulation.
The Epigenetics Diploma Course covers everything you need to know about chromatin – dynamic chromatin structure and hierarchy, methods to investigate chromatin, and chromatin as it relates to DNA repair.
We look at mechanisms, including covalent modifications, RNA transcripts, mRNA, sRNAs, prions, structural inheritance, and more.
You’ll discover how nutritional epigenetics works, in terms of health and disease, and take a look at cancer epigenetics. Following a brief explanation on cancer epigenetics, the Epigenetics Diploma Course takes you through MicroRNA gene silencing, metabolic recoding and more, before moving on to different types of cancer, including skin cancer, prostate cancer, cervical cancer, and sarcoma.
The Epigenetics Diploma Course covers various topics within human epigenetics. These topics include Barr body formation, genomic imprinting in human disease, disorders in humans connected with imprinting, and developmental diseases caused by epigenetic malfunctioning.
