4:00 PM | Seasons influence the methylation profiles of newborns: more evidence that mom’s diet during pregnancy has lasting effects in her offspring.
Metastable epialleles (ME) are gene alleles that are differentially expressed through epigenetic regulatory mechanisms. The DNA methylation status of an ME is established during embryonic development, and can be maintained later into life. The differential methylation of these MEs contribute to phenotypic diversity between individuals and provides an explanation for the epigenetic variability observed in […] The post Seasons influence the methylation profiles of newborns: more evidence […]

Many livestock producers find themselves stuck between a rock and a hard place these days. Take pork production. These days pork producers are trying to balance the need to produce pork efficiently enough to feed a booming population with concerns around the well-being of those pigs. Cutting mortality, and keeping animals housed, fed, watered, and free from injury and disease isn’t enough anymore for consumers or the corporations that buy pork from producers.
