The epigenetics describes the study of stability and long-term alterations in the
transcriptional potential of a cell. These modifications may or may not be genetic,
although the use of the term epigenetic to describe processes that are not
heritable is argumentative. Unlike simple genetics based on changes to the DNA
sequence (the genotype), the changes in gene expression or cellular phenotype
of epigenetics has other causes, thus use of the term epi (outside of, around)-

Epigenetics. Humans have 23 pairs of chromosomes (one pair of sex
chromosomes and 22 pairs of autosomes). Since the Human Genome Project
was completed in 2003, it has been known that less than 2% of the DNA in the
human genome codes for proteins, and that humans have only about 20,000 to
25,000 “genes” (International Human Genome Sequencing Consortium, 2004).
The 98% of the genome that does not code for proteins was once viewed as “junk
” or “nonsense” ...

EPIGENETICS Epigenetics refers to the regulation of various genomic functions,
including gene expression, which are not based on DNA sequence but rather
controlled by heritable and potentially reversible chemical modifications of DNA
and/or the chromatin structure (e.g., DNA methylation, chromatin modification)(49
). DNA methylation is a relatively stable epigenetic mark; that is, DNA methylation
patterns are transmitted from maternal chromatids to daughter chromatids during

A promising new and developing avenue toward understanding these
interactions is called epigenetics. The following section discusses this emerging
field and what it might offer to the study of antisocial behavior. Epigenetics We
have spoken at length about the interplay of biology and the environment. For the
most part, recent biosocial research is neither purely sociological nor purely
biological but integrative. Criminologists are beginning to discover how
environments and biology ...

Epigenetics In historical debates about the relative influence of “nature” and “
nurture,” the field of child development has recognized both sets of causalities.
Nevertheless, perhaps because nurture seems more subject to clinical influence,
there has been a greater emphasis on “nurture”—that is, the postnatal family
environment as the primary determinant of individual differences. In contrast,
developmental biology and neuroscience tend to view development through a “
nature” lens.

Mary K. Barger EPIGENETICS AND PREGNANCY When we mapped the human
genome, we thought we would have a major understanding of the role of genes
in health and disease. However, we learned that the reasons why certain genes
are expressed and others are not are more complex. Hence, the field of
epigenetics (a term that was first used in the 1990s) began to explore the role
environment plays on gene phenotype. With our increased understanding of the
complex ...

On the other hand, if people with a family history of heart disease engage in
healthful behaviors such as a diet of healthful fats and no trans-fats, low in sugar,
low in salt, yet high in fruits and vegetables, nuts, and lean protein; exercise
regularly at least for a half an hour 5 days of the week; don't smoke; and drink
only one glass of red wine a day, then they mitigate their increased risk of a heart
attack by their behaviors. Epigenetics is the study of the impact of environmental
factors on ...
