Introduction to the world of epigentics,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Epigenetics Revolution: How Modern Biology is Rewriting Our Understanding of Genetics, Disease and Inheritance (Paperback)
As a non science person getting interested in biomedicine while working in a non science capacity in a company in this sector I found this book fascinating.
This book introduces and develops in some depth the work done by scientists in understanding the epigentic code around DNA or in other words how dna expresses itself in diferent ways and in different kinds of cells.
The author is able to transmit complex scientific ideas in a way that lets the lay reader get to grips with the latest ideas in this field without a degree in biology. She also quite clearly has a vast knowledge of epigentics and a desire to share her enthusiasm with others who are interested.
It is not an easy read but nor is it a tough read. You need to engage the brain but one feels encouraged to do so. I would recommend it to anyone who wants a starting knowledge of epigentics.
