...Richard A. Stein; Devra Lee Davis Epigenetics is emerging as one of the most dynamic and vibrant biomedical areas. Multiple lines of evidence confirm that inherited genetic changes alone cannot fully explain all phenotypic characteristics of live organisms, and additional factors, which are not...

Further, I discuss how such cases, even considered as exceptions, contribute to understanding the nature of science, both...

...Migdalisel Colóón-Berlingeri Epigenetics involves heritable changes in gene expression that do not involve alterations in the DNA sequence. I developed an active-learning approach to convey this topic to students in a college genetics course. I posted a brief summary of the topic before class to...
