Event description

Description

The world is full of situations where two genetically identical things differ from each other. Think of a maggot and a fly; the identical twins whom you can tell apart; the trillions of cells in your body. These and many more examples tell us that biological life can’t be explained just by thinking about our DNA. Something else must be influencing us, and that something is epigenetics. From new treatments for cancer, to transmission of trauma, epigenetics is teaching us to view the world of biology differently.
