Epigenetics Discussion

In response to the thoughtful comments by the authors of the DNA article quoted in blog #23. Your points remind me of the Mark Twain quote about how the problem is not what we think we know but what we think we know that just ain’t so. I loved your article but still hold on to some hope that epigenetics will change our narrow understanding/definition of genetics. Perhaps the non-DNA regulatory material will be more reveal some of the answers. The clinical effects are certainly there and we have to come up with some way to deal with them. With a lack of useful research the clinician, as usual is left having to make it up.
