e-infrastructure Roadmap for Open Science in Agriculture

A bibliometric study

The e-ROSA project seeks to build a shared vision of a future sustainable e-infrastructure for research and education in agriculture in order to promote Open Science in this field and as such contribute to addressing related societal challenges. In order to achieve this goal, e-ROSA’s first objective is to bring together the relevant scientific communities and stakeholders and engage them in the process of coelaboration of an ambitious, practical roadmap that provides the basis for the design and implementation of such an e-infrastructure in the years to come.

This website highlights the results of a bibliometric analysis conducted at a global scale in order to identify key scientists and associated research performing organisations (e.g. public research institutes, universities, Research & Development departments of private companies) that work in the field of agricultural data sources and services. If you have any comment or feedback on the bibliometric study, please use the online form.

The Role of the Epigenome in Gene Expression Control and the Epimark Changes in Response to the Environment


Our knowledge base involving the biochemical participants of epigenetic control has expanded greatly over the last decade. The role of epigenetic marks to DNA and histones controlled by non-coding RNAs is one of the most intensely studied areas of biology today. This review covers many of themechanisms that non-coding RNAs and other molecules use to control gene expression and eventually affect responses to the environment. In the first part of the review, we discuss the array of covalent modifications to the genome that constitute the epigenome, which consists of the histone variants, covalent modifications, and post-translational modifications that result in gene expression changes. How the histone variants and post-translationalmodifications including, acetylation, methylation, phosphorylation, ubiquitination and sumoylation help form the epigenome is also summarized. Our eventual understanding of how the environment controls these modifications will open incredible opportunities in agriculture, medicine and the development of practical tools for biology. In the second part of this review we discuss the growing list of environmentally-mediated epigenetic-modifications, and examples of transgenerational epigenetic inheritance events, that may begin to change our views of adaptive responses to the environment and evolution.
