Getting started with the EpiDiverse online learning platform.

EpiDiverse is a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network aimed at the study of epigenetic variation in wild plant species. The network joins research groups from ecology, molecular (epi)genetics, and bioinformatics to explore the genomic basis, molecular mechanisms, and ecological significance of epigenetic variation in natural plant populations.

The 15 (former) Ph.D. students of the network decided that they wanted to provide a textbook and online learning material for beginners in Ecological Plant Epigenetics. Or in other words, they wanted to help others with the kind of material, they were missing when they started this project in 2017. The platform consists of an introductory textbook, the Epidiverse toolkit, and lectures. We hope that you like the result and that it helps you to get started in this exciting research field.
