Talk title and synopsis

Molecular changes induced by stress and developmental reprogramming in plants

Epigenetic modifications such as cytosine methylation and histone modifications influence phenotype without permanent modification of the DNA sequence. I will discuss how newly acquired epigenetic imprints can be inherited over many generations and how these modifications can provide adaptive values to offspring.
