APRIL 1ST ALERT -- Exploring the Epigenetic Effects of Seafood Consumption on the Cat Genome, New Webinar Hosted by Xtalks

TORONTO, ON --(Marketwired - April 01, 2016) - Industry experts Dr. Cornelius Whiskers of the National Institute for the Advancement of Cat Research and Sebastian Meowserton, a candidate at the Whiskers Lab will outline a recently published paper detailing the study of how a high-seafood diet affects epigenetic modifiers of the Felis catus genome. The keynote speakers will suggest epigenetics changes that may explain the erratic behavior of hungry cats.

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.

Join Dr. Cornelius Whiskers and Sebastian Meowserton on Friday, April 1st at 4pm. For more information or to register for this complimentary event, visit: Exploring the Epigenetic Effects of Seafood Consumption on the Cat Genome.
