José Gómez-Skarmeta

Centro Andaluz de Biología del Desarrollo. Sevilla, Spain

José Gómez-Skarmeta, from the Centro Andaluz de Biología del Desarrollo (CABD) in Sevilla, Spain, combines epigenomics, chromosome capture assays, transgenic enhancer experiments and mutagenic studies to determine how cis-regulatory elements and chromatin structure contribute to development and evolution, and how alteration in this non-coding part of the genome affects human health.

He has been invited by Arnau Sebé Pedrós (IBE: CSIC-UPF).
