We know that the genes we inherit from our parents influence our physical appearance and risk of certain diseases. However, recent discoveries show that we can inherit other molecules besides DNA that affect disease risk. At the March Eastside Science Café, join the Institute for Systems Biology’s Joseph Nadeau, Ph.D., to explore the unexpected ways that our ancestor’s genetics and environment affect us across generations.
