  • Impact of Nuclear Domains On Gene Expression and Plant Traits (INDEPTH)

    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 Main Meeting in El Escorial

      The Main meeting for the third grant period of COST Action 16212 (INDEPTH) needed to be held between May 2019 and April 2020. Therefore in order to coincide with an opportunity provided by the Society of Experimental Biology (SEB) Plant and Cell Symposium, the organising committee decided to hold the meeting in December 2019 in the beautiful location of San Lorenzo de El Escorial in Spain.
