Epigenetics: The keeper of the code
In recent years, attention has increasingly turned away from DNA's code and toward the way that DNA is packaged and the proteins that interact with it. These so-called epigenetic factors are heritable, reversible, and hugely influential.

Over the last few decades, epigenetics has become a hot scientific topic.

With potential roles in cancer, neuropsychiatric disorders, and immune disorders, it is no surprise that epigenetics is garnering such intense attention. The way in which genes are expressed is incredibly complex; it requires the infinitely detailed coordination of multiple molecular players.

Epigenetics creates an additional layer of complexity that researchers are only now beginning to understand.
