The features of a person depend not merely on genes inherited through the parents but also on epigenetics, which identifies molecular mechanisms that determine which genes will be fired up or off in various cell types.

Waterland, associate teacher of pediatrics – nourishment in the USDA/ARS Children’s Nourishment Research Middle and Tx Children’s Medical center and of molecular and individual genetics at Baylor University of Medicine.
