Many of you may be familiar with a genome the genome is the entirety of an organism’s hereditary information. But and epigenome is kind of ike the software that tells the genome how to function. It can either turn a gene off or on.

This is fascinating presentation on Agouti mice and what happens to off spring when the pregnant female mice are exposed to toxins. It also shows that supplementation does make a difference in turning off some of the harmful genes. I hope you enjoy the Dr. Dolinoy’s presentation. I found her work amazing.
