  • Does the brain accumulate trauma?

    Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a mental illness that can develop after experiencing a traumatic event. Greater awareness of PTSD emerged when large numbers of soldiers returning from the Iraq war reported symptoms. Other traumatic events such as experiencing childhood or sexual abuse, a tr more

  • Leukemia Epigenetics in Focus

    Some severe forms of leukemia develop because proteins on the epigenetic level lose their regulative function. Now, in a broad international collaboration, UK researchers have identified molecules that can effectively inhibit the dysregulated proteins. In the journal Angewandte Chemie, researchers r more

  • Call for standards of epigenetic data

    At the heart of every cell is the nucleus, which acts as the cell’s control center. Recent studies have revealed more and more information about its organization and dynamics. However, the rapid development of methods and the increasing complexity of the collected data pose major challenges. Leading more

What is Epigenetics?

Why your DNA is not your destiny. Molecular biologist Nessa Carey presents an introduction to epigenetics and explains how it shapes life.DNA is a vitally important starting point for life, but it's how it's used by cells and organisms that is really important. Epigenetics is a rapidly moving fi ... more

Epigenetics - packaging artists in the cell

Methyl attachments to histone proteins determine the degree of packing of the DNA molecule. They thereby determine whether a gene can be read or not. In this way, environment can influence the traits of an organism over generations. more

  • Beyond epigenetics

    In many complex animals, the germ line is separated from the rest of the body early in development, which led the 19th century biologist August Weismann to conclude that environmentally caused changes in an organism are not inherited. A revelation in recent years, and the focus of Russell Bondurians more
