Sex, Gender, and Epigenetics: From Molecule to Bedside explores our expanding knowledge of the science of epigenetics in which gene expression is modified as a consequence of small chemical additions to various components of the genome. The book provides an overview of the field, describing the epigenetic phenomena that unite biological sex and environmental experience to create the unique phenome of each individual. The book also analyzes the impact of ancestors’ environmental experience on subsequent generations through the sex-specific transmission of environmentally induced epigenetic modifications.

Here, international leaders in the field discuss both sex-specific normal physiology and the experience of disease, with chapters dedicated to fetal programming, the microbiome, cancer, bipolar disorder and schizophrenia, embryogenesis, and oocyte aging, among other topics.
