Watch the epigenetics video:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=avWwfuJYnnI Begin your paper by defining epigenetics in your own words and discussing your reaction to the video.
Research and locate one article on epigenetics and whatever disease most at risk for (based on family history) (select a study on research conducted on humans) from a reputable academic source:
◻Cite your article APA style (author & year within body of paper; full reference at end)
government publications based on research
Do not use:
magazines of any sort.
Websites of any type, including epigenetics websites
Read the epigenetics article you find. Continue your paper with a discussion of the epigenetics article. Be sure to paraphrase (put things in your own words) and be sure to cite the author(s) of the article you find using APA style (see the section below on using APA style). Aim for about a page for this part of your paper.
Discuss the concept of epigenesis in light of your family history (found in attached files) and the article you read. Aim for one page for this section of your paper.
Integrate your findings on the living to 100 questionnaire (I attached the files below) into your discussion. Aim for another page.
Discuss how you can improve your health and longevity in light of your findings in this questionnaire, your understanding of epigenetics, and your knowledge based on my family history. This should be your final page.
