Inherited epigenetics produced record fast evolution | (Epi)Genetics, Sociobiology & Evolution | Scoop.it
The domestication of chickens has given rise to rapid and extensive changes in genome function. A research team at Linköping University in Sweden has established that the changes are heritable, although they do not affect the DNA structure.

Was Lamarck right? Epigenetic research suggests we might inherit learned traits. But how? | Genetic Literacy Project

Was Lamarck right? Epigenetic research suggests we might inherit learned traits. But how? | Genetic Literacy Project | (Epi)Genetics, Sociobiology & Evolution | Scoop.it
It seems almost certain that epigenetic effects -- an annotation to DNA that changes how genes are expressed -- can be inherited in some cases. Although the mechanism responsible remains shrouded in mystery and doubt, an intriguing study suggests that mIce can inherit a learned fear of a specific smell. Could other traits also be epigenetically inherited? Does this happen in humans?

Matt is a history teacher. his twin brother, greg, is a drug addict. (Their names have been changed to protect their anonymity.) Growing up in the Boston area, both boys did well in high school: they were strong students in the classroom and decent athletes on the field, and they got along with their peers.
