Abstract: Inhentable traits are not only encoded in the sequence of DNA, but also determined by factors 'on top' of the DNA, the epigenetic information ('epi' is classical Greeh for 'on top') 1. Epigenetics is the study of those mechanisms that control gene expression which are independent of the DNA sequence itself.
