Animal Epigenetics

Epigenetic and transgenerational epigenetic inheritance research are performed on a multiple number of mammal, insect, and plant. A lack of research into these topics using farm animal models (bovine, porcine, ovine, and gallus) exists. Research into epigenetic transgenerational inheritance is limited because much of the work has focused on the direct effects of environmental submission to toxicants and nutrients. Pesticides are the cause of having dramatic transgenerational epigenetic effects on many of the animal models which affecting the nervous system, reproductive and endocrine systems, and even causing cancer. Changes in the epigenome induced by the environment have been documented in diverse animal phyla, ranging from insects to rodents to humans.
