Plants are vital to human life and health and are essential to mitigate the effects of climate change. Due to their sessile lifestyle, plants have developed the ability to rapidly adapt their genome expression in response to environmental challenges. Multiple lines of evidence indicate that spatial (3D) organization of nuclear DNA is critical in this adaptation process and the Impact of Nuclear Domains On Gene Expression and Plant Traits (INDEPTH) network will decipher how nuclear architecture, chromatin organization and gene expression are connected and modified in response to internal and external cues. This is COST Action CA16212.

INDEPTH includes ongoing open opportunities for members to benefit from COST programme activities.
STSMs provide opportunities to researchers to gain new skills relevant for their work. INDEPTH will support travel and accommodation at a host lab where the STSM recipient can develop their research.
Details about available STSMs can be found here.
INDEPTH will host a range of short training schools on topics relevant to the Action in which researchers can learn new skills within a hands-on environment.
Details on upcoming Training Schools can be found here.
> ITC Travel Grants
Up to €1500 is available for INDEPTH members from Inclusiveness Target Countries (ITC) to travel to an international meeting to represent their research alongside promotion of INDEPTH activities.
