And that is what epigenetics is all about how are genes controlled and what factors can influence them epigenetics refers to the meta level of genetic regulation under the influence of external factors epigenetic mechanisms regulate which genes are turned on and off this helps our fixed genetic material to be more flexible. Epigenetic modifications are induced by the environment in the broad sense the cell constantly receives all kinds of signals informing it about its environment so that it specializes during development or adjusts its activity to the situation see epigenetics the genome and its environment these signals including those related to our behaviours diet smoking stress etc can lead to changes in the expression of our genes without affecting their sequence. It achieves what it sets out to do on the cover sub title by explaining how environment shapes our genes but does so in a surprising and interesting fashion currently epigenetics is below the main public radar thats going to change this book in its own small way will assist that process. Epigenetics is the tremendous new science of how genes are expressed the old idea is that genes simply dictated instructions for building and running a body epigenetics says its a two way street the body and the environment can change the way that genes are expressed when and how much as well as potentially how they are passed on
