Researchers at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln have found evidence that the epigenetics-based evolution that occurs in complex multicellular species (eukaryotes) is also at play in a species of archaea, which are microscopic, single-celled organisms.

April 6, 2018 In a review article published April 5 in the New England Journal of Medicine, scientist Andrew Feinberg, M.D., calls for more integration between two fields of DNA-based research: genetics and epigenetics. Most people are familiar with genetics, a field of research that focuses on the precise sequence of chemicals that form the […]Continue Reading ...
Might 18, 2017 An interview with Alan Horsager, PhD, CEO, Episona, performed by way of April Cashin-Garbutt, MA (Cantab) What’s sperm epigenetics and what function does it play in fertility? Epigenetics is a device of knowledge that lies atop DNA to keep watch over which genes are obtainable, lively and inactive. Every cellular on your […]Continue Reading ...
March 24, 2017 A learn about revealed in Briefings in Purposeful Genomics investigated how epigenetics can modulate human’s genetic program — it could emphasize or silence genes. The brand new analysis presentations that if epigenetics is disrupted, it could transfer on oncogenes (genes that during sure cases become cells into tumor cells) or close down […]Continue Reading ...
