Since its inception, the field of genetic engineering has introduced DNA to plenty of nips, tucks, and modifications all in the name of science. The latest evolution of these, genome editing, might be the most promising. Follow our favorite highlights in this rapidly moving application.
Epigenetics News Timelines
Follow key areas of epigenetics news and see how they develop over time.
Molecular inheritance is what genetics is all about, so here we highlight some examples where the epigenome plays a key role in inheritance.
Thanks to growing interest from the general public, environmental epigenetics is a red-hot topic with no signs of cooling off anytime soon. We’ve certainly covered our fair share of research with an environmental slant to it, so if you want to review, research, or just plain get up to speed on the subject, these articles […]
The underlying goal for most epigenetic research projects is to eventually lead to a therapeutic clinical application. Here we provide a history of clinical epigenetic advances in this interdisciplinary field as told through our articles and Conference Highlights.
Promoters and UTRs seemed to have grabbed the better part of the limelight in recent years, but let’s not overlook enhancers. These mysterious pockets of regulatory potential are full of surprises. Read all about the epigenetic breakthroughs in the understanding of enhancers.
