DNA SIG Meeting (Information)
The DNA SIG meeting is a hybrid meeting for members with an interest in DNA for their genealogy research. Members should register to attend this event by logging in and selecting the event with "(Register)" in the title.
Epigenetics is the science of how major lifetime experiences of parents and grandparents can have biological effects on their children and grandchildren, without changing anyone's DNA. For example, there is double the risk of death from heart disease for the children and grandchildren of people who suffered famine in their slow growth phase (when aged 8-15 years).
We are working to invite an Australian researcher into epigenetics to address the DNA SIG. Details will be available here, once confirmed.
