Epigenetics, from the Greek epi: “above,” and genetikos: “genesis, origin,” controls the whole genome and transcriptome by modifying chromatin structure. It concerns environmental changes in phenotype, but not in genotype. The organization of the chromatin can be modified by epigenetic mechanisms to create unique “epigenetic landscapes” for different cell types, resulting in unique properties and distribution patterns of gene expression.
