Fermilab Arts & Lecture Series - Epigenetics: Is the Age Old Debate of Nature vs. Nurture Merely a Question of Packaging? - Sept. 7
Epigenetics is the emerging branch of science aimed at understanding how environmental influences (diet, stress, xenobiotic exposure) can act on an organism at the level of controlling gene activity and how these environmentally induced changes may be inherited by offspring. Until recently, epigenetics was a catchall for all we do not yet understand about heredity beyond the double helix of DNA, but new research suggests that these epigenetic pathways may be far more general and central to genome management than ever imagined. Lecture by Dr. Alex Ruthenburg, U. of Chicago - Sept. 7, 8 pm - $7. For more information please visit http://www.fnal.gov/culture.
