This inaugural event will bring together scientists within this burgeoning field to explore the very latest developments in epigenetics in marine biology, with a focus on three key areas:
- 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.
