Title: Telomeres, DNA methylation and the study of ageing

Location:
MPI BI Seewiesen, Room 8/1.08

Host: Michaela Hau

Abstract:
We study molecular mechanisms underlying life history trade-offs in free-living birds. In this presentation I will present our view on the role of telomeres in ageing, our preliminary results on variation in DNA methylation, and ideas on the potential of ecological epigenetics.
