S3. Bioinformatic analyses in plant epigenetics
Chaired by Noé Fernández-Pozo, María Teresa Boquete, Francisco Balao
Technological advances have produced a large increment of epigenetic data in the last decade, raising new bioinformatic challenges to analyze massive amounts of data to understand epigenetic variation and regulation in plants. Research topics in this session, could include: i) bioinformatic analysis of DNA methylation, histone modifications, non-coding RNA, transposable elements, QTLs, ii) effects of epigenetic in combination with other omics such as genomics or transcriptomics, and iii) the development of useful resources such as bioinformatic analysis tools, databases, pipelines, models, benchmarks, etc.
