Environment & Epigenetics•Last week we reviewed how genes are translated into proteins. There were two main steps, transcription –which transcribes DNA to RNA; and translation –where RNA is translated into the new language of a protein. •Today we’re going to focus on one particular aspect of controlling transcription –or inhibiting it - epigenetics. Environment can affect gene expression through epigenetics
