The developing genome : an introduction to behavioral epigenetics

Author: David Scott Moore
Publisher: New York : Oxford University Press, 2017
Edition/Format:   Print book : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
Why do we grow up to look, act, and feel as we do? Through most of the twentieth century, scientists and laypeople answered this question by referring to two factors alone: our experiences and our genes. But recent discoveries about how genes work have revealed a new way to understand the developmental origins of our characteristics. These discoveries have emerged from the new science of behavioral epigenetics--and  Read more...

Abstract:

An accessible introduction to behavioral epigenetics, The Developing Genome explores how experiences influence genetic activity. We develop as we do not because of the genes we have, but because of  Read more...

Publisher Synopsis

Moore's book joins Jablonka and Lamb's text as a new standard in epigenetics literature. It is a compulsively readable account of one of the most vibrant areas in science that is well-researched, Read more...
