Exploring the Epigenetic Effects of Seafood Consumption on the Cat Genome

WEBINAR DETAILS

Date: Friday, April 1, 2016

Time: 4pm EDT (NA) / 9pm GMT (UK) / 10pm CET (EU-Central)

Duration: Dependent on Feline Cooperation

Featured Speakers:

Research has shown that seafood – including salmon, tuna and shrimp – constitutes nearly 80 percent of the average cat’s diet. While seafood is a lean source of protein, some veterinarian professionals have questioned whether fish is an ideal food for felines.

In 2007, Cinnamon was the first cat to have his genome sequenced. A higher-quality version of his genome was published in 2014 sparking a flurry of research, purr-ticularly on genes responsible for metabolism.

Dr. Cornelius Whiskers of the National Institute for the Advancement of Cat Research, and his Ph.D. candidate, Sebastian Meowserton, have recently published a paper detailing their study of how a high-seafood diet affects epigenetic modifiers of the Felis catus genome.

In this world’s fur-st cat-centric webinar, they will discuss that research in detail, while suggesting that these epigenetic changes may explain the erratic behavior hungry cats.
