Affecting health across generations

Antoine Peters and his group at the Friedrich Miescher Institute for Biomedical Research (FMI), in collaboration with scientists from Canada, have shed new light on paternal epigenetic inheritance. Experiments in a mouse model show that the development of offspring can be severely impaired by alterations in chromatin and gene expression in developing male germ cells. These findings, just published in Science, have the potential to change our understanding of the mechanisms whereby traits are inherited. Read more
