Environmental stressors and the epigenome. Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • Epigenetic modification and transgenerational transfer of phenotype at the individual or population level, particularly in response to environmental change, is at the forefront of biological investigation. The plasticity of this process allows an organism to respond to changes in environmental conditions, potentially conferring a survival advantage. In this review, we discuss epigenetic transgenerational phenomena in the specific context of environmental stressors including hypoxia and environmental toxicants.:
