ONE HEALTH Epigenomics: From Sediment to People
Friday, February 26, 2016  12/30/1899 8:30:00 AM - 12/30/1899 5:00:00 PM  Chablis
Chair: Acacia Alcivar-Warren

The goal of the "ONE HEALTH Epigenomics: From Sediment to People" session is to start a dialogue between ecologists, plant and animal scientists, shrimp industry, and public health professionals about the need to incorporate environmental epigenomics tools in long-term assessments of health risks to the environment, plants, animals and people caused by endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs: metals, antibiotic Glyphosate and other pesticides, PAHs), insecticidal toxins, and microbial transgenes present in genetically engineered crops (GMOs) and our food supply. Speakers will address the holistic concept of ‘ONE HEALTH Epigenetics’: to help conserve biodiversity of healthy mangroves ecosystems in light of climate change, to produce healthy animals, to protect human health long-term. A severe bacterial disease of shrimp, Acute Hepatopancreatic Necrotic Disease (AHPND), also called Early Mortality Syndrome (EMS), will be used to highlight health considerations regarding horizontal transfer (HGT) of microbial transgenes; antibiotic resistance (AR); and interactions of CO2, EDCs (metals, Glyphosate) and the microbiome of sediment from mangroves and shrimp farms. Other topics include: transgenerational epigenetic inheritance of EDCs and microbial transgenes, epigenetics of AHPND-causing Vibrio parahaemolyticus and V. harveyi with plasmids encoding binary Photorhabdus insect-related (Pir) toxins pirA and pirB, proteins with overall structural topology similar to that of the Cry toxin of Bacillus thuringiensis, mobile/transposable elements (TEs) of bacteria and shrimp, DNA methylation of Vibrios and shrimp, non-coding RNAs and RNAi silencing of TEs, HGT and emerging zoonoses, and the need to more rigorously assess the transgenerational safety of Glyphosate and GMO-based crops to non-target species like shrimp, using modern environmental epigenetics, biochemical, and ecological modeling technologies.
