epigenetics

.

It's almost time for my Coursera epigenetics class to begin.

They sent us to brush up on basics before the class begins.  This page has the most interesting of the videos I've seen so far.  (The others were cool to see, but lacked narration, and so were less useful to me than they could have been....)

It's mind-blowing how much we know about genetics, now, that we had no clue about 20, 15, or even 10 years ago..................

I found it interesting (and often humorous) what sound effects they decided to add.

They made it sound very machine-y, I thought.

My mind is absolutely boggled that all that is going on.

And that's probably just scratching the surface of what's really going on....

Amazing. I'm thinking of myself much more as a community, these days, than as a single entity!
