How are genes turned on and off? Why is epigenetics important?

The Epigenetics Research Laboratory at the Garvan Institute in Sydney has released Epigenetics Basics, the first in a series of four sketch videos about epigenetics, created by Armando Hasudungan in collaboration with Professor Susan Clark and Dr Kate Patterson.

Created for a broad, non-expert audience, these videos use original illustrations that, together with simple, clear narration, help to highlight key messages about the role epigenetics plays in biological processes like development and diseases such as cancer. 

We at AEpiA congratulate Armando on his fantastic work, and look forward to the next video in the series.
