The first EPIgenetics in MARine biology congress (EPIMAR) is being held online from 6-9 October 2020 by co-organisers which include EuroMarine member organisations CNRS and Ifremer. 

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.

This online event is free for public participants. It is limited to 200 registrations.
