Epigenetics is the most exciting field in biology today, developing our understanding of disease, hereditary traits, and evolution.

In a striking comic-book style, Introducing Epigenetics pulls apart the double helix, illustrating the key concepts in cell biology and exploring the route from Pythagoras's theory of "spermism" through the Human Genome Project to the present day.
