Type of activity: Workshop
Place: Rishon LeZion, Israel
Title: Epigenetics of temperature & light responses in plants
Trainers: Michal Lieberman-Lazarovich, Eirini Kaiserli, Sotirios Fragkostefanakis (organizers)
Venue: Gene-Bank auditorium, Institute of Plant Sciences, Volcani Center
Basic information about the course: The COST Action Epigenetic mechanisms of crop adaptation to climate change (EPI-CATCH) aims to develop and promote knowledge exchange of the epigenetic mechanisms regulating plant adaptation to environmental stresses due to climate change. Within the EPI-CATCH remit, we are organizing an international Workshop on the “Epigenetics of temperature and light responses in plants” at Volcani Center in Israel, on March 15th-16th 2023. The Workshop will bring together international authorities and early career researchers introducing key concepts, novel technologies and findings on how model plants and crop species adapt and respond to unfavorable ambient temperatures and light exposure at the epigenetic level.
