Genomics goes beyond dna sequence

Wow. Just got pass this wonderful reference explaining how Genomics goes beyond dna sequence. Firstly I

didn't even know that epigenetics even existed. Explains a lot.

I definitely believe that genes aren't everything. Kind of like in software, the operating system can only express what the hardware supports. I'm assuming each cell encourages some genes to be expressed while others aren't.

I've always know that envrionment plays a strong hand in what gets expressed. Didn't know that this could be passed on. I assume its a combination of the make up of the egg and maybe contents of the womb.

Just had to record this since it taught me quite a bit
