Have you ever wondered why your heart cell is different from your brain cell, when they both contain the same DNA? The answer is Epigenetics! Epigenetics is the study of changes in organisms caused by modification of gene expression rather than alteration of the genetic code itself. Epigenetics plays a role in cancer, development, disease, etc… A cell responds to external stimuli by changing its epigenetics. Researchers use sequencing and multiple methods to study epigenetics, which is helping us understand some of the most complex systems of biology. Here we present an overview that highlights the importance of Epigenetics.
