Epigenetics is the study of heritable changes in gene expression that are not accompanied by changes in the DNA sequence. As technology and research methods continue to evolve, epigenetic analysis has improved researchers' understanding of biology, disease mechanisms and personalized medicine, promising to reveal new complexities in gene regulation and its impact on human health. With a dedicated research team and advanced technology platforms, CD BioSciences is committed to providing global clients with comprehensive solutions to explore and understand C. elegans epigenetics.
Epigenetics, the study of genetic changes in gene expression that do not involve changes in DNA sequence, is key to understanding how environmental factors and cellular experiences affect gene activity. Epigenetic mechanisms include histone post-translational modifications, histone variant binding, non-coding RNAs and nucleosome remodeling nuclear exchange. Epigenetic analyses focus on modifications of DNA and its associated proteins that regulate gene expression without altering the underlying DNA sequence and can influence how genes are turned on or off, ultimately affecting an organism's development, function, and response to the environment.

Epigenetic changes are not only inherited through cell division, but may also be influenced by environmental factors, making them an important area of research for understanding a wide range of biological processes and diseases. C. elegans epigenetic analysis can help researchers discover hidden patterns, decode regulatory mechanisms, and contribute to advances in the fields of genetics, development, and molecular biology.
