We are pleased to announce that the first EPIgenetics in MARine biology congress (EPIMAR; open event) will be held online over 4 half days from the 6th to the 9th of October 2020 (2:30 PM – 6:00 PM, Paris Time, France).
For organizational purposes EPIMAR will be joint to the first symposium of the French Groupement De Recherche “Epigenetique en Ecologie et Evolution” (GDR3E; https://gdr3e.sciencesconf.org/; private event).
With the costs reduction associated to an online organization we are now able to make EPIMAR free of charge for public participants.
Participants that already registered through this website will be automatically refund and registered (you will receive a confirmation email asking you to fill in your profile information for networking purpose).
All new participants will have to register online, on the LiveE web plateform that will host EPIMAR. The link will be available soon, here. Registration will be limited to 200 participants.
What is EPIMAR ?
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 within the scientific community in biology.
The following key aspects will be presented:
– Environmental epigenetics, the study of adaptive or non-adaptive epigenetic modifications over one or more generations, initiated in response to an environmental modification
– Developmental epigenetics, the study of 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 will provide opportunities for interaction and exchange and support for the growing international scientific community working on epigenetics in marine biology, which to date lacks a dedicated, regular and sustainable convention.
Save the date and join us at EPIMAR 2020 !
