The link below is to the paper on the emerging narratives of epigenetics in regards to obesity that I reference in the podcast, which I presented at the 2014 annual conference of the Association of Politics and the Life Sciences:

The Emerging Obesity Policy Narratives of Epigenetics

I have also summarized a number of research papers on epigenetics. You can find these research summaries here:

Reasearch Summaries

Additional Information:

For a visual of how epigenetics work, you can watch this video from the University of Utah Genetic Science Learning Center.

Also, in this video:

a world class epigeneticist explains some of the mechanisms of epigenetics, as well as discusses some of the intriguing possibilities (video from the RWJF).
