We are finally starting to unravel the missing link between nature andnuture; how our environment talks to us, sometimes forever.
NessaCarey, The Epigenetics Revolution (2012)
The epigenetics revolution is underway.

What we are now learning is that our genes are part of a larger flexible network. This is contrary to what we’ve been told about our genetic selves. Our genes aren’t fixed and rigid as most of us have been led to believe.
Today no one doubts that epigenetic effects play a crucial role in development,aging and even cancer.
Michael Skinner, ANew Kind of Inheritance (2014)
In the 21stcentury it is the new scientific discipline of epigenetics that is unraveling so much of what we took as dogma and rebuilding it in an infinitely more varied, more complex, and even more beautiful fashion.
NessaCarey, The Epigenetics Revolution (2012)
….forsome very specific situations Lamarckian inheritance is taking place.
NessaCarey, The Epigenetics Revolution (2012)
Understandingepigenetics andepigenomicswillbe essential in work related to many other topics requiring a thorough understanding of all aspects of genetics, such as stem cells, cloning, aging, synthetic biology, species conservation, evolution, and agriculture.

SharonMoalem, Inheritance (2014)
The thing Mendel couldn’t see in his peas- and that generations of geneticists continued to miss after his death- is that it’s not only what our genes give to us that’s important but also what we give to our genes […] nurture can and does trump nature.
Now it appears that our diets and lifestyles can change the expression of our genes.How?Byinfluencing a network of chemical switches within our cellscollectivelyknownas theepigenome.
NOVA’s Ghost in Your Genes (2006)
Epigenetic effects occur not just in the womb, but over the full courseof a human life span.
BobWeinhold, Epigenetics: The Science of Change (2006)
The most important effect of epigenetic marks – maybe their reason for existing –might be to wildly expand the number of variant individuals in a population.
Michael Skinner, ANew Kind of Inheritance (2014)
The evidence linking epigenetic processes with cancer is becoming extremely compelling...[they] account for one-thirdto one-half ofknown genetic alterations [in cancer].
BobWeinhold, Epigenetics: The Science of Change (2006)
“I am biased,but the tip of the iceberg is genomicsand single-nucleotide polymorphisms.The bottom of theiceberg is epigenetics.”
RandyJirtleto BobWeinhold(2006)
“And there’s much more potential for theepigenometo be affected [in cancer, atherosclerosis, Alzheimer’s disease] than the genome itself. It’s just more fluid and more easy to be the culprit.”
Jean-PierreIssato Ken Garber (2006)
But nurture matters too. Many of the contingencies of life- what we eat,what pollutants are in our environment,how often we are stressed –affect how the genes operate.
