Course How Mother Influences Offspring

How important are the epigenetic influences on the phenotype of our offspring? During the course How Mother can Influences Offspring, organized by Dairy Campus and  Wageningen Academy, the latest knowledge and insights of transgenerational (nutritional) effects for both humans and animals will be discussed. A diversity of inspiring examples seen in livestock and humans will be presented.

To obtain a better understanding of these effects, we will look into the mechanisms involved and provide participants with a better understanding of nutritional and environmental maternal influences on the expression of the genome of offspring.
