Dear ICAR 2012 participants

I would like to inform you about a workshop on Epigenetics and Epigenomics to be held Thursday July 5th at the ICAR 2102 in Vienna from 4:30 to 6:00 pm in the Zeremoniensaal.

This workshop will highlight current research in Plant Epigenetics/Epigenomics (see program below) and will provide an update of the activities of EPIC (Epigenomics of Plants International Consortium). 
The following links provide additional information about EPIC: https://www.plant-epigenome.org/
 and EPIC's goals: http://www.plantcell.org/content/early/2012/06/28/tpc.112.100636

Workshop Speakers

Ales Pecinka (Max Planck Institute for Plant Breeding Research, Cologne, Germany)
Enhanced expression of epigenetic regulators safeguards transmission of transcriptional gene silencing in the shoot apical meristem

Fredy Barneche (IBENS, France)
Fine-tuning of gene expression during DE-ETIOLATION through histone H2B ubiquitination

Franziska Turck (Max Planck Institute for Plant Breeding Research, Cologne, Germany)
Polycomb group proteins provide a structural scaffold to expose cis-regulatory elements that control tissue-specific and photoperoid-dependent regulation of Flowering Locus T

Doris Wagner (University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, USA)
Update on EPIC
Role of chromatin remodeling in inducible gene expression in plant development and growth


Caroline Dean (John Innes Centre, Norwich, UK)
Co-transcriptional role for Arabidopsis DICER-LIKE 4 in transcription termination

With best regards,
