The interplay between epigenetics and the environment is one of many fascinating research areas of epigenetics. If you were lucky enough to attend Keystone Symposia’s Meeting on Environmental Epigenomics and Disease Susceptibility last spring, you were fortunate enough to hear from some of the world’s top researchers leading the way to a better understanding of how epigenetics and the environment converge to impact our health.
For more on this topic, you can listen to Dr. Randy Jirtle in the following recorded presentation:
Epigenetics-How Genes and Environment Interact
Dr. Randy Jirtle, Director of the Epigenetics and Imprinting Laboratory, Duke University
This recorded presentation is now available at: NIH VideoCasting and Podcasting
Also, if you’d like to hear more about Dr. Jirtle’s transition from nuclear engineer to imprinting guru and chief publicist for Agouti mice in our phone interview with Dr. Jirtle last spring.
