WAM-3025 Epigenetics: Diet, Lifestyle & Environment

3 credits
Prerequisite(s): SOC-1040  or SOC-3080  or Permission of Instructor
Epigenetics explores how modern diets, lifestyles and environmental toxicity may change the expression of our genes.  How?  By influencing a network of chemical switches within our cells collectively known as the epigenome.  The ethical questions that are inherent in the study of epigenetics are important to discuss, explore and challenge.  This course will investigate a new understanding of our bodies in terms of our genetic inheritance, our food choices, our lifestyle choices, and our environment … and their impact on our longevity and others around the world.
