International plant epi/genetics meeting 2018

International plant epi/genetics symposium 2018

plant epigenetics and transposable elements - from basic research to plant breeding

29-31 October, 2018

Angers (FRANCE)

“Plant epi/genetics” is an international conference on epigenetics and transposable elements. The aim of this conference is to bring together experts, novices, students and breeders to exchange and discuss their latest results in the fields of epigenetics and transposable elements. The conference will range from fundamental research to applications in crop plants. Plant breeding companies are encouraged to join in and participate at this meeting.

Thanks to kind sponsors, we'll have poster and presentation prizes for PhD students.

The main themes of the conference will be:

  • Epigenetic and genetic mechanisms involved in genome stability.
  • Transposable elements and plant genome evolution.
  • Heritability of epigenetic marks.
  • Regulation of phenotypic variability in plants by transposable elements and epigenetics
  • Harnessing epigenetics and transposable elements for crop breeding.
  • Novel sequencing technologies and bioinformatics tools for the analysis of epigenetic marks and transposable elements.

Keynote Speakers

  • Isabel Bäurle
  • Claude Becker
  • Tetsuji Kakutani
  • Marie Mirouze
  • Olivier Panaud
  • Bob Schmitz
  • Nathan Springer
  • Clémentine Vitte
  • Jian-Kang Zhu

We hope to meet you in Angers soon!

“Plant epi/genetics” est une conférence internationale sur l'épigenetique et les éléments transposables, organisée par Etienne Bucher, Directeur de recherche Inra et responsable de l'équipe EpiCenter à l'UMR IRHS.

L'objectif est de rassembler des experts, des novices, des étudiants et des sélectionneurs pour échanger sur les dernières avancées dans ces domaines.

Ce symposium couvrira les domaines de la recherche fondamentale et appliquée des plantes cultivées.
Les thématiques abordées seront les suivantes :

  • L’épigénétique
  • Les éléments transposables
  • L’amélioration des plantes dans le contexte du génome dynamique
  • Les défis de l’amélioration des plantes en vue du réchauffement climatique
