Interdisciplinary Workshop: Adaptive Epigenomics
Building a Bridge Between Animal and Human Research
The interdisciplinary workshop "Adaptive Epigenomics" took place on the 24th and 25th of July 2017 in the monastery Hegne near Constance. The event was organized by the Hector Fellows Thomas Elbert and Axel Meyer, as well as by the young scientists Dr. Amber Makowicz, Daniela Conrad and Maggie Sefton, who are promoted by the Hector Fellow Academy. The workshop combined the two research fields of the organizers: Clinical Psychology and Evolutionary Biology. In addition to lectures by international scientists on the latest research in the field of "Epigenomics," the participants were also offered hands-on exercises for the analysis of epigenetic data. The aim of the workshop was to build a bridge between human and animal research.
