To disentangle the complexities surrounding the genome, advanced technologies in epigenetics are indeed necessary. Epigenetics largely affects the way in which genes are read by the cells and whether the cells should produce appropriate proteins. Epigenetics is related to four key characteristics: (i) controlling ability of the genes, (ii) existence anywhere in the DNA, (iii) harnessing facility to derive unique features and (iv) reversibility. Epigenetics revolution can potentially enrich our understanding about the behaviour and phenotypical structure of life1. It is also important to develop comprehensiveness about why and how life inherits specific traits, advance diseases, mature ages and evolve as a species2.

Abstract


To disentangle the complexities surrounding the genome, advanced technologies in epigenetics are indeed necessary. Epigenetics largely affects the way in which genes are read by the cells and whether the cells should produce appropriate proteins. Epigenetics is related to four key characteristics: (i) controlling ability of the genes, (ii) existence anywhere in the DNA, (iii) harnessing facility to derive unique features and (iv) reversibility. Epigenetics revolution can potentially enrich our understanding about the behaviour and phenotypical structure of life1. It is also important to develop comprehensiveness about why and how life inherits specific traits, advance diseases, mature ages and evolve as a species2.
