Epigenetics

The nuclear genome of almost every cell in your body is identical. If that's the case, why does one cell become a neuron and another become a hepatocyte? The answer: they both have different gene expression. This is where the science of epigenetics comes in.

In the epigenetics module, we learn how different nutrients, the quality of your sleep, mindfulness, and many other exposures affect your gene expression and how you can use this knowledge to promote the physiological processes that build health and resilience for you, your family, and future generations.
