Epigenetic modifications are covalent modifications of DNA or histones that cause changes in gene expression. These changes can influence cell fate, cell proliferation and cell function. Epigenetic modifications appear to be a method through which nurture or the environment can influence nature. Particular attention will be paid to how experience or environmental factors epigenetically modify health or behavior of animals.
