What is epigenetics?
The term epigenetic is often used to describe a variety of unexpected patterns of gene regulation. Chemical modifications of chromosomal DNA and/or structures that change the pattern of gene expression without altering the DNA sequence.

The Epigenome™The epigenome consists of the chemical compounds that tell DNA what to do, where to do it and when to do it, ™All of which can be functions undertaken by any one of organism cells using the same identical DNA toolkit.       e.g. grow a finger vs. grow a nose, grow cancer vs fight cancer.  in other words, if DNA  is hardware and epigenome as the software that controls hardware.
