Developmental epigenetics is the study of epigenetic gene regulation during development and includes the developmental programming of fetal growth trajectories and adult diseases. The section will publish innovative research on all aspects of developmental epigenetics including X chromosome inactivation, imprinting and lineage commitment, primarily, but not exclusively, focusing on mammalian systems. Our aim is to foster research that interrogates the phenotypic outputs of epigenetic processes during development. We particularly welcome studies in which gene expression, epigenetic regulators and/or specific epigenetic marks have been experimentally manipulated.
Of special interest are papers which cover the following subjects:
- Epigenetic gene regulation in the control of lineage determination, cell identity and tissue regeneration
- Developmental plasticity of epigenetic gene regulation in response to environmental stressors that alter growth, development and later life phenotypes, with a particular emphasis on exploring functionality and establishing causality
- Contribution of epigenetic processes to development, adaptation and evolution.
