The Science of Epigenetics:A 21st Century Revolution
September 6 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm| Free
Have you been curious about what exactly is #epigenetics, how is different than #genetics and why the #scientific community is so excited about this new field? Come be demystified next Wednesday with Know Science at the launch of our new free lecture series with Biotech Without Borders!
There are many profound biological questions that genetics is unable to resolve, not least among them some of our most intimate concerns about human health and disease, and the critical role of our lifestyle and other environmental factors in shaping these. The exploding field of epigenetics has the potential to address these questions.
In this talk we will explore what we mean by epigenetics, why it is so important, and how we might be able to harness it for a healthier future.
