Genetics Unzipped podcast: Pimp my genome – Exploring the wonderful world of epigenetics

Posted by , on 16 July 2020

Colourful ChromosomesIn this episode, Kat Arney takes a look at the world of epigenetics to find out if more than DNA passes on to the next generation, whether Darwin was wrong and Lamarck was right, and how to pimp your genome. Plus, we meet the Mickey Mouse Mice – a strange (but cute!) example of transgenerational epigenetic inheritance.
