University of Toronto biologists discover an epigenetic key to unlock behavioural change in fruit flies 20.10.2017 Green Technology and Environmental Science News - ENN

However, how they interact at a molecular level to shape behaviour is still unclear.A new study led by scientists at the University of Toronto sheds valuable light on this relationship. The paper, published in  Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America, reveals how epigenetics – changes in gene expression that do not change DNA – interact with genes to shape different feeding behaviours in fruit flies.
