Abstract: Epigenetics is the study of heritable phenotype changes that do not involve alterations in the DNA sequence. It has been used in the evolution theory and disease therapy. Can it be selectively inherited by manipulation? Humans may be able to benefit from new technologies and avoid some harmful epigenetic events.

Key words: epigenetics; regulation; therapy
