AMMAN — The Royal Scientific Society of Jordan (RSS) and Gryphon Scientific, in cooperation with Metabiota Inc., are currently hosting the “Middle East and South Asia Conference on Epigenetics and Genomics of Infectious Diseases” in Amman.

The two-day conference, held under the patronage of HRH Princess Sumaya, president of RSS, is open to junior and senior scientists from the region and the United States.

Presenters and attendees include health experts; research scientists working in the fields of epigenetics, genetics and pathogen infection; and policymakers, an RSS statement said Monday.

“In this challenged global environment... we are indeed fortunate that so many Middle East and South Asia countries possess the skills and the necessary infrastructure to carry out both genomic and epigenetic studies,” the statement quoted Princess Sumaya as saying.
