mRNA transcripts, cis/trans-acting questions

... two constitutive regulatory mutations that you are calling m1 and m2, respectively. (I.e. both mutants synthesize proteins A and B even without induction.) When you test different genotypes and different partial diploids using F’ strains, you obtain the following results. (The mutations are ...

What are the potential benefits of epigenetics research?

... Recent studies in humans and in animal models show that epigenetic processes, in particular DNA methylation, have a central role in the induction and stability of novel phenotypes and in increased disease risk. Identification of such processes suggests the potential for developing biomarkers ...
