This new understanding may lead us to potent new medical therapies [and manipulated genetic disasters, particularly in the realm of modified foods and deadly pesticides that kill off bees, frogs, and most of us]. Epigenetic cancer therapy, for one, already seems to be yielding promising results.

- Epi-genetics is the study of heritable changes in gene expression or cellular phenotype caused by mechanisms other than changes in the DNA sequence itself. The word is composed of the root -genetics modified by epi- (Greek for "over, above, or outer"). It refers to relevant modifications to the genome that do not involve a change in the genes or nucleotide sequence.
