Virtual Event Virtual Event

10 July @ 10:00 11:00

We are delighted to welcome back our monthly online talk series! The new series will run on the second Wednesday of the month at the new time of 16:00 – 17:00 (UK Time). Each session will be aligned with one of our seven scientific journals, so tune in to hear an in depth discussion on a specific field of entomology alongside key updates and new activities from the Society.

These talks are free for RES members, so join today! Please note, all attendees, including members, must register below to receive the link to attend the talk.

Insect Molecular Biology
Insect epigenetics: challenges and dilemmas

Wednesday 10 July
10:00 – 11:00 (BST)

The latest in our online talk series highlights RES journal Insect Molecular Biology, publishing high-quality original research on insect and arthropod molecular biology, focusing on insect genomics/genes and proteomics/proteins.

This talk will focus on a Special Issue on ‘The role of epigenetics in insects in changing environments‘ due to be published soon. Epigenetic regulation in insects is increasingly important in a changing environment. This special issue looks at its role in areas such insect stress and behaviour, across various taxa including those of medical and agricultural importance. We are delighted to be welcoming one of the key authors in the Special Issue, Ryszard Maleszka, to speak on ‘Insect epigenetics: challenges and dilemmas.’

Ryszard Maleszka
Australian National University

Ryszard Maleszka is Emeritus Professor and Honorary Group Leader at the Australian National University in Canberra. He received his degrees from the Department of Genetics, University of Warsaw and has done postdoctoral work at the National Research Council of Canada before moving to Australia in 1987. Since 1998 he has been spearheading a research theme that uses insect model systems to study the genotype to phenotype link, and to understand how epigenetic modifications contribute to phenotypic and behavioural plasticity. His work provided impetus for a new field of research on insect epigenomics and brought distinction to science community in Australia. He has published over 150 papers including research and popular articles, reviews and book chapters.
