Epigenetics, Mutations, and Gene Insertion

Lecture no. 6 from the course: 12 Essential Scientific Concepts

Epigenetics, Mutations, and Gene Insertion

Taught by Professor Indre Viskontas | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course

It turns out that our genes aren’t fixed but change across our lifespans. In this fascinating lecture, investigate three major ways in which that happens: epigenetics, the modification of gene expression through environmental changes; mutations, which involve alterations in the genetic code; and gene insertion, in which viruses play a surprising role.
