Gene expression modification toward climate change adaptation (EPI-CATCH COST Action)

Epigenetics is the science that analyzes the modification of gene expression as a function of the environment. Since trees cannot move, it is obvious that gene response to climate change is a major factor in forest trees. EPI- CATCH COST Action aims to define, develop, generate and share new breaking knowledge and methodology for the […]
