Study group discussion: Epigenetics

Epigenetic science is a whole new perspective. To bioethics and to humanity.

Yeah there will be some secondary factors that control this epigenetic modulation.

Decitabine and aza cytidine also work by epigenetic modulation.

I didn't get the cytidine epigenetic modulation bit. Can you please elaborate?

Epigenetics is a process where one gene is active at one time and other gene is inactive same time and vice versa.

This is due to some secondary factors.

Drugs like Decitabine and aza cytidine used in MDS has minor mechanism in epigenetics.

That's all I know ;)


Also epigenetics means
he interaction between the nature and nurture. Genetics and environment.

It means that if you're having a gene for diabetes doesn't make you diabetic, until there's a reaction with your environment.
