So, On the assessment test I got a question wrong, I know big surprise. The one I am going to focus on for my blog was the following question:
Genomic imprinting, DNA methylation, and histone acetylation are all examples of which one of the following (choose one):A)
The answer to this question was E) epigenetic inheritance. I don't know much about epigenetics so I thought I would research it a little more. Epigenetics is actually a study about the 'heritable changes in phenotype or gene expression' this actually does not happen because of a change in DNA sequence but rather non-genetic factors that allow the gene to express itself differently.
