Epigenetics: No single factor determines its role in the deveopment of a multicellular organism

Thinking that the article by Heidi Chial, Ph.D. and Jef Akst, on ‘Epigenetics‘ published in the Nature weekly magazine would interest GNOBB readers. The same informative article is being posted again. The Coordinator invites opinion from GNOBB readers to shed light on this complex genetic phenomenon. which puzzles geneticists for a long time as to why individua
