RE: epigenomes- you have DNA(genome) but then there's a whole lot of mechanisms in cells to change expression of different genes so they can be switched on/off. The epigenome basically consists of the molecules involved in this and is different in each person. The study looked at methylation(little molecules attaching to DNA) and showed that its changed in distinct ways by a certain stress. Its a huge area for future research into how environments affect our health, youve got the right idea tbh

cool- okay so the epigenome is a molecular on/off switch for your dna pairs? is that the idea? so it can affect your dna hugely by turning a piece on or off, right?

A lot of reasons kpop fans don’t consider idols as being exploited until something like a member getting kicked out or an idol is like fuck this shit is because while on one hand they “care about the members” but on the other hand they have internalized that idols are basically products for their consumption. Think about that.

DNA signature found in ice storm babies

The number of days an expectant mother was deprived of electricity during Quebec’s Ice Storm (1998) predicts the epigenetic profile of her child, a new study finds.

Scientists from the Douglas Mental Health University Institute and McGill University have detected a distinctive ‘signature’ in the DNA of children born in the aftermath of the massive Quebec ice storm. Five months after the event, researchers recruited women who had been pregnant during the disaster and assessed their degrees of hardship and distress in a study called Project Ice Storm.

Thirteen years later, the researchers found that DNA within the T cells - a type of immune system cell - of 36 children showed distinctive patterns in DNA methylation.

The researchers concluded for the first time that maternal hardship, predicted the degree of methylation of DNA in the T cells. The “epigenetic” signature plays a role in the way the genes express themselves. This study is also the first to show that it is the objective stress exposure (such as days without electricity) and not the degree of emotional distress in pregnant women that causes long lasting changes in the epigenome of their babies.

Well i live in Montréal i was there during the ice storm we losted electricity for couples of days and we had no school for 2 weeks it was the best time of my life. Anyway my cousin is born 3 month after this storm and i can assure you she’s not a mutant and her immune system is fine.

i was there during the ice storm too but i think more the point was that if even short-term trauma is physical in children, then imagine what a whole pregnancy of shitty living conditions does to a fetus… compounding health concerns for the poor by affecting children born poor at birth, let alone the fact that they are less likely to be able to afford/have access to medical care… i think was the point… i mean idk biology but that’s what i had in mind when i reblogged it and would like to see thoughts from people who know wtf an epigenome is cause i don’t tbh

jinyoung thirst: I want to roll jinyoung up in a blanket like he's a burrito and tickle his feet as I slide his bedsocks on. I want to spray leave in conditioner in his hair. I want to listen to his rambling discussions about how well his grandchildren are doing and how the vegetable patch could sorely use some rain. I want to coo over his facebook interactions with corporate accounts as he tells McDonald's his last burger was too salty.

OMFG
