Epigenetics: Part III

Mar 16, 2012

Though the field of Epigenetics was conceived in the era of platforms and poly-leisure suits, it has received sparse media attention. And now, scientists are realizing it has the potential to explain A LOT about human disease and evolution particularly, the grey areas where genetics seems to fall short.

Michael Skinner, Professor of Biological Sciences at Washington State University and director of the Center for Reproductive Biology, and Professor Randy Jirtle, director of the Epigenetics and Imprinting Laboratory at Duke University are forging new territory in science with their leading work in the field of epigenetics.
