We are pleased to announce that the first EPIgenetics in MARine biology congress (EPIMAR) will be held on May 13th-14th, 2020 in Montpellier, France.
This first edition will explore cutting-edge aspects of epigenetics in marine biology : environmental epigenetics, developmental epigenetics and epigenetics in aquaculture. EPIMAR2020 aims at gathering scientists with interest in this field which has recently gained an increasing interest among all the scientific communities in biology.
The following key aspects will be presented:
- Environmental epigenetics, which studies adaptive or non-adaptive epigenetic modifications over one or more generations, initiated in response to an environmental modification
- Developmental epigenetics, which focuses on epigenetic changes involved in the fine regulation of gene expression involved in embryonic and cell differentiation in marine species
- Epigenetics in aquaculture, with a focus for this first edition on epigenetic pathways which may be targeted by environmental cues to improve sustainable food production.
Cutting-edge presentations on these topics aim at providing interaction and exchange opportunities to support the growing international scientific community on epigenetics in marine biology, which to date lacks a dedicated, regular and sustainable convention.
Please, save the date and join us at EPIMAR 2020 !
EPIMAR2020 is organized by the French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS), Ifremer, the Universities of Montpellier and Perpignan and the University of Caen Normandie
It will be chaired by Dr. Céline Cosseau, Dr Rossana Sussarelu, Dr Jérémie Vidal-Dupiol and Dr Guilluame Rivière
