Epigenetics for all audiences


María Berdasco explained as in recent decades we have gone from thinking that everything was written in our DNA, in our genome to realize that also have to consider epigenenome. “Epigenetics explains why organisms and people genetically identical as identical twins do not behave exactly the same.” Berdasco has explained that “these differences have much to do with our relationship with the environment, nutrition, habits and other aspects of our lifestyle.”

Epigenetics has a very important role in the development of certain diseases such as cancer.
