Chromosomes: structures within the nucleus of a cell made of DNA and associated proteins.
Each contains many genes
DNA: where genes are made
Epigenetics: the study of heritable changes in gene function that occur w/o a change in the DNA
Gene expression: the process by which a cell converts the genetic code into RNA and protein.
Genes: sections of chromosomes that contain the instructions needed to make one or more
Genetics: the study of genes and inheritance
Genomics: the study of all the genes in an organism and their interactions with environmental
Human genome: the complete set of genetic material (DNA) in a human
Methylation: the addition of a methyl group
Microarray technology: research tool
