Introduction. to. Epigenetics. Manel. Esteller. Genetics alone cannot explain
human variation and disease. Humans with the same DNA sequence, such as
monozygotic twins, and cloned animals frequently present different phenotypes
and degrees of sickness penetrance. The increasingly popular term epigenetics
embodies a partial explanation of both phenomena. First introduced by C.H.
Waddington in 1939 to name “the causal interactions between genes and their
products, which ...

The term epigenetics was first introduced in 1942 by Conrad Waddington and
was defined as the causal interactions between genes and their products that
allow for phenotypic expression [1]. This term has now been somewhat redefined
and although there are many variants of the definition of this term today, a
consensus definition is that epigenetics is the collective heritable changes in
phenotype due to processes that arise independent of primary DNA sequence.
This heritability of ...

INTRODUCTION. Epigenetics is a rapidly growing field of study in the current,
postgenomic era of biological research. Epigenetics can be broadly defined as
heritable genomic patterns and functions that are not dependent on DNA
sequence changes. These may be heritable from one generation of cells, or of
organisms, to another. Epigenetic patterns (or putative epigenetic “codes”) are
based upon nucleic acid and protein structures. NucIeosomes—repeating
structures, primarily ...
