From 8 to 10 March 2017 - SETE Moulis
From 8 to 10 March 2017, SETE will host a workshop on evolution and non-genetic inheritance: the inheritance of other factors than DNA sequence variation.
The workshop will consist of lectures and discussion sessions and is organized by the ANR MEMOSTRESS project of Vincent Colot (IBENS Paris), Olivier Loudet (INRA Versailles) and Tom Van Dooren (iEES Paris).
