Training School Plants and environment: Evaluation of environmentally induced epigenetic variation in plants Mendoza, Argentina, March 6-11, 2023

The course is oriented to graduate students, postdocs or early career scientist involved in plant biology which can take profit of the techniques covered, to answer some biological questions involving environmental induced epigenetic modifications in plants. The training school will have a first day of lectures. The practical course will be in person. Both theoretical and practical courses are free of charge, but registration required.
