Evolution and Epigenetics

The 2022 symposium entitled “How Evolution Learnt to Learn – Epigenetics of Experienced Context” and this virtual issue follow on published volumes of previous symposia: Ann. N.Y. Acad. Sci. Vol. 1178 (Natural Genetic Engineering and Natural Genome Editing) in 2008, Ann. N.Y. Acad. Sci. Vol. 1341 (DNA Habitats and Its RNA Inhabitants) in 2014, and Ann. N.Y. Acad. Sci Vol. 1447 (Evolution — Genetic Novelty/Genomic Variations by RNA-Networks and Viruses) in 2018.

The symposia were organized by Guenther Witzany. The 2022 symposium included 50 experts to discuss epigenetic marking and its regulatory impact on transgenerational inheritance, cell fate and identity, morphology, physiology, genetic instructions, neuroepigenetic reprogramming, memory and learning, physical and mental disease, immunity, and the roles of persistent viruses and their co-opted and exapted defectives such as non-coding RNA networks and mobile genetic elements. The symposium took place on July 6-10, 2022 at the St. Virgil Conference Center in Salzburg.

Head administrator Hiltrud Oman managed all the details before and during the meeting; Andreas Oman, Martin Koller, and Tanja Walorz assisted directly at the conference center; and Land Salzburg and Stadt Salzburg supported the symposium. Heidi Vereno performed as the harpist at the conference dinner.
