New Paper: Genomic Imprinting, Human Skeletal Muscle and Exercise Epigenetics

Imprinted genes, a fundamentally epigenetic phenomena, are genes which show genotype-independent parent-of-origin effects. Genomic imprinting is a good example of an epigenetic effect because a key component of the environment (i.e., whether the gene was transmitted from sperm or egg) leaves a functional but reversible … Continue reading
