Insights into Genomic Imprinting: Studying Parental-Specific Epigenomes in Plants

This webinar will discuss a project that sought to understand the parent-of-origin epigenetic mechanisms that regulate seed development in plants, with a particular emphasis on differentiating the maternal or paternal origin of epigenetics marks. Parental-specific epigenetic marks are established in the gametes and maintained after fertilization, resulting in parental epigenetic asymmetry. Epigenetic asymmetry causes parent-of-origin-specific gene expression, a phenomenon termed genomic imprinting. Imprinted genes play an important role in animal and plant development. In plants, genomic imprinting occurs in the seed, particularly in the endosperm, an ephemeral tissue that supports embryo growth similarly to the nourishing role of the mammalian placenta.
