Last night’s Cafe featured an introduction from Dr Anthony Isles to some of the epigenetic mechanisms currently being studied by scientists, and their possible effects on gene expression, together with a talk from Dr Michael Arribas-Ayllon on some of the potential social implications of epigenetic phenomena – for our understanding of gene-environment interactions, a renewed appreciation of the significance of class, and for our sense of intergenerational responsibility.
