  • epigenetic
  • Unlike passively transferred genetic mutations, the epigenetic changes must be actively maintained and its "reversibility" makes them a potential therapeutic target (10). (scielo.br)
  • During each life cycle, gametes must preserve and pass on both genetic and epigenetic information, making the germline both immortal and totipotent. (umassmed.edu)
  • genes
  • Although Boolean networks are a crude simplification of genetic reality where genes are not simple binary switches, there are several cases where they correctly capture the correct pattern of expressed and suppressed genes. (wikipedia.org)
  • traits
  • He has several lines of research ongoing in his laboratory that on the surface may look independent from one another, but all share a conceptual interest in understanding how complex traits arise through, and are affected by, the interaction of genetic and environmental factors. (duke.edu)
  • Some genetic traits are instantly visible, such as eye color or number of limbs, and some are not, such as blood type, risk for specific diseases, or the thousands of basic biochemical processes that constitute life. (wikipedia.org)
  • human
  • To explore the genetic architecture of human overgrowth syndromes and human growth control, we performed experimental and bioinformatic analyses of 710 individuals with overgrowth (height and/or head circumference ≥+2 SD) and intellectual disability (OGID). (icr.ac.uk)
  • These data reveal insights into the genetic control of human growth and demonstrate that exome sequencing in OGID has a high diagnostic yield. (icr.ac.uk)
