Epigenome may hold promise for conquering diseases
from News Medical
The human genome project captured the public imagination when its first draft was published 14 years ago in the international science journal Nature, but the epigenome may hold the real promise for conquering disease. While your genome is the same in every cell in your body (except for the gametes), the epigenome is made up of chemical compounds that determine which part of the genome is available for instructing the cells to make proteins. It's why a skin cell, for example, knows it's a skin cell.
