Conrad Waddington (1905-1975) is often credited with coining the term epigenetics in 1942 as "the branch of biology which studies the causal interactions between genes and their products, which bring the phenotype into being". Epigenetics appears in the literature as far back as [...] Conrad Waddington (1905-1975) is often credited with ...
