Epigenetics: The Science of Change
Epigenetics – that strange word that we will all be hearing more about soon and sooner. More than genetics it includes the impact (yes, direct change, on genes) that the environment around us creates. Interest has been enhanced as it has become clear that understanding epigenetics and epigenomics—the genomewide distribution of epigenetic changes—will be essential in work related to many other topics requiring a thorough understanding of all aspects of genetics, such as stem cells, cloning, aging, synthetic biology, species conservation, evolution, and agriculture.
