Project structure

In EpiDiverse, research projects are clustered around a few study species [VK1] with very different life histories and ecological characteristics. For each species, research groups from different backgrounds collaborate to generate genomic resources and epigenomic analysis pipelines (the “bioinformaticians”, work package 1) and to use these tools for exploring patterns of epigenetic variation in natural populations (the “ecologists”, work package 2) and to understand the epigenetic mechanisms of plant responses to environmental stress (the “molecular biologists”, work package [VK2] 3).
