Systems Biology approaches are promising to help scientists advance the field of Epigenetics.Systems biology is the study of systems of biological components. Since living systems are dynamic and complex, their behavior can be hard to predict [...] Systems biology uses information about the parts of the system (shown on the left) in order to ...

... on the cancer-fighting, brain-boosting or heart-healing properties of everything from garlic to grapes, there's also some fascinating research to suggest that what we eat might also have epigenetic effects. Kat Arney investigates. To unravel the link between epigenetics and diet, let's step back to World War II (watch out for that unexploded ...

... day-to-day business. How does the inner city know what parts of the information to access in order to produce what it needs? And how is this knowledge then remembered or maintained, from day to day, year to year, in order to avoid chaos? Researchers studying epigenetics are interested in exactly this type of question: how does a cell know which parts ...

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 ...

... quickly dismisses the idea.January 2007 Marie-Laure Caparros discusses how genetics and epigenetics have mapped a route to long life, and tells us why red wine might be a good antidote to ageing. Evidence dating back to the 1930s shows how lifespan can at least be extended, but there is no magic potion. McKay reduced the calorie intake in ...

In April 2005 I was assigned a mission: to take a tour of epigenetics in Europe. The prospect filled me with a great deal of excitement, but a big question. What on earth is epigenetics all about? Thankfully, my mission afforded me an adventure into continental Europe to talk to the scientists themselves [...] In April 2005 I was assigned a mission: ...

Response written by: Elphège Nora, PhD - postdoctoral researcher in Edith Heard's laboratory, Institut Curie The 2012 Nobel prize in Physiology or Medicine, to John Gurdon and Shinya Yamanaka, is a very good example of how knowledge about epigenetics can be practically applied. Epigenetics basically aims at understanding how a cell – or an organism ...

... silencing has a role beyond virus resistance: it protects the genome by silencing transposons (mobile DNA elements that can hop around the genome). This maintains the integrity of chromosome structure and function and keeps gene expression right during growth, development and in response to external stimuli. David is also keen to explore epigenetic ...

... mechanism has been recently revealed, and was quite a surprise for the imprinting community! The protection of the imprinted genes is embedded in their sequence… meaning that this protection is genetically determined. They carry indeed multiple motifs of 6 to 7 nucleotides (TGCCGC exactly), which will recruit a specific protein called ZFP57 only when ...
