Global Epigenetics Market is estimated to reach USD 1009.248 million by 2021 | Market Data Forecast

Epigenetics is the study of change in behavior of organism by modification of genetic expression rather than change in genetic code itself. Genes will get turned off or turned on depending on the circumstances, interactions etc. These turning on and off of genes differ in most of humans making humans unique. Some of these traits are passed down to future generations as heritable traits. The study of this entire mechanism is called Epigenetics.

Global Epigenetics Market was worth USD 533.46 million in 2016 and is expected to reach USD 1009.248 million by 2021 with a CAGR of 13.7 %.

Epigenetics is the study of potentially heritable changes in gene expression without a change in genetic sequence. These changes affect how cells read genes and how these genes are executed. These changes can be caused by various factors like Interactions, Circumstances, age etc. Epigenetic changes determine which cells should terminally differentiate to end up as skin cells or liver cells etc. Sometimes, they may cause diseases like cancer.

As humans grows and develops, depending on the interactions they made, circumstances they live in some genes become dormant or active to make who they are. Epigenetics is the study of these changes and factors that influence them. These changes decide how a cell should act and it may cause diseases like cancer sometimes. These epigenomes are sometimes inherited by their offspring.

Epigenetics is the study of changes in gene expression without any change in genetic sequence. These changes are affected by various factors like environment we live in, people we’ve interacted with and our age itself. These Epigenetics create differences in humans making every human unique. Some of these traits can be passed down to future generations.
