Epigenetics as a response of living organisms to environmental factors

 
 
Published on 03/15/2018

 The EPIGEN seminar, organized by Adebiotech, was held on March 13 and 14, and gathered scientists from academia, the industry, clinicians and epidemiologists to talk about epigenetics.

In a context where man, animals and plants are all exposed to biotic and abiotic variation factors whose impact on organisms is for the moment poorly known (climate change, pollution of soil, water and air, endocrine disruptors), the identification of driving elements for epigenetic mechanisms along with the de...

Cattle come in all sizes: small, average or big. Scientists from INRA, Allice (a cooperative for animal selection and reproduction) and foreign partners involved in the "1000 bovine genomes" consortium explored the genetic determinism responsible for animal stature. Their results show a very complex regulation.

At least 163 genomi...
