Salk Institute scientists have developed a novel technology to correct disease-causing aberrations in the chemical tags on DNA that affect how genes are expressed. These types of chemical modifications, collectively referred to as epigenetics or the epigenome, are increasingly being considered as important as the genomic sequence itself in development and disease. http://www.salk.edu/news-release/novel-tool-confers-targeted-stable-editing-epigenome-human-stem-cells/

  1. the genome is like the complexity of everything written in human history. the epigenome is like how complex it would be to have everybody who has ever lived tell you what they thought they have read.

  2. Given both the highly technical vocabulary and the non-native accents, you may want to consider subtitling your videos. But I'll check out the news release to try to fill in the gaps. Thanks.
