Led by the University of Cambridge a team of researchers have, for the first time, described in humans how the epigenome – the suite of molecules attached to our DNA that switch our genes on and off – is comprehensively erased in early primordial germ cells prior to the generation of egg and sperm.   Continue reading… “DNA reprogramming in human germ cells observed for first time”
