Dear all,

hereby I would like to inform you on an upcoming symposium organized by 
the Research Community on Evolution and Complexity (chair: Prof. Dr.  
GertrudisVan de Vijver, Ghent University & FWO Flanders, Belgium).  The 
symposium is titled "Contextualizing the Genome: the role of  
Epigeneticsin Genetics, Development and Evolution" and will be held in 
November 2001, Ghent, Belgium. It promises to be a unique event, where  
philosophers of biology (some making a link to the history of biology) 
will try to meetmolecular biologists and epigeneticists and vice versa 
on a most fascinating topic.  In attachment, please find a word-document 
with further information,including the conference-website which holds a 
link to the abstracts.

With most kind regards, Lien V.S.
on behalf of the organizing committee of the RCEC

EVOLUTION & COMPLEXITY
Scientific Research Community, FWO - Flanders

International Interdisciplinary Symposium 
organized by

Contextualizing the Genome:
the Role of Epigenetics in
Genetics, Development & Evolution

Gene expression depends on various of its surrounding contexts (from 
intracellular to environmental). However, can any of these contexts be 
seen as more crucial than others in determining gene expression? Are 
they to be seen as mutually determining? What is their respective impact 
on the development and evolution of living beings? These problems of 
genomic context will be explored from within epigenetics. Going 'beyond' 
a strict gene-centrism, epigenetics studies heritable changes in gene 
function that cannot be explained by changes in DNA sequence. Leading 
researchers in epigenetics and philosophers of science are asked (i) to 
reflect upon the biological relevance of recent epigenetic experiments, 
and (ii) to investigate the implications of epigenetics for the existing 
philosophical and scientific models and views on more advanced theories 
on molecular genetics, developmental biology and evolutionary theory.
