9780199922345: The Developing Genome: An Introduction to Behavioral Epigenetics
Review:

"David Moore's description of the complex discoveries in epigenetics is a tour de force-it allows all readers to appreciate the significance of these unexpected phenomena. The Developing Genome is required reading for all who wonder about the power of genes." --Jerome Kagan, PhD, Daniel and Amy Starch Professor of Psychology, Emeritus, Harvard University"Epigenetics is one of the hottest topics in biology these days, and that certainly makes sense-it helps explain on a nuts-and-bolts level precisely how experience, especially early in life, leaves long-lasting effects on our bodies and our behaviors. Not surprisingly, it's also a complex subject to understand, and is vulnerable to hype and inflated promises. There's no one better than David Moore to write a book like this-he knows the field inside out and writes about it in a way that is insightful, appropriately skeptical at points, and utterly clear and accessible to the interested non-scientist. This is a terrific book." --Robert M. Sapolsky, PhD, John A. and Cynthia Fry Gunn Professor of Biological Sciences, and Professor of Neurology and Neurological Sciences, Stanford University"Every dogma has its day, and the once-vaunted central dogma of molecular biology has seen better ones. A steady stream of surprising findings emerging from the rapidly growing field of behavioral epigenetics is showing us how our DNA does not legislate from above, but is rather a participant in a highly interactive developmental system. It is from this system that our behavior and psychology emerge. In his wonderfully informative and accessible new book, David Moore proves himself a skillful guide to this very complicated and vast new field. For readers hoping to understand what all the excitement is about without drowning in a sea of jargon, they need look no further." --Mark Blumberg, PhD, F. Wendell Miller Distinguished Professor in the Departments of Biology and Psychology, University of Iowa"Reading David Moore's explanation of epigenetics is relevant for anyone who is interested in health and behavior as an aid in making appropriate life decisions, or from an academic perspective. This authoritative, intriguing, practical, and wise book helps steer us away from the tradition of assuming that genes are deterministic, and towards a better understanding of how life experiences can alter the genomic heritage that all parents share with their children." --J. Steven Reznick, Professor of Developmental Psychology, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill

From the Publisher:

Why do we grow up to look, act, and feel as we do? Through most of the twentieth century, scientists and laypeople answered this question by referring to two factors alone: our experiences and our genes. But recent discoveries about how genes work have revealed a new way to understand the developmental origins of our characteristics. These discoveries have emerged from the new science of behavioral epigenetics—and just as the whole world has now heard of DNA, "epigenetics" will be a household word in the near future.

Behavioral epigenetics is important because it explains how our experiences get under our skin and influence the activity of our genes. Because of breakthroughs in this field, we now know that the genes we're born with don't determine if we'll end up easily stressed, likely to fall ill with cancer, or possessed of a powerful intellect. Instead, what matters is what our genes do. And because research in behavioral epigenetics has shown that our experiences influence how our genes function, this work has changed how scientists think about nature, nurture, and human development. Diets, environmental toxins, parenting styles, and other environmental factors all influence genetic activity through epigenetic mechanisms; this discovery has the potential to alter how doctors treat diseases, and to change how mental health professionals treat conditions from schizophrenia to post-traumatic stress disorder. These advances could also force a reworking of the theory of evolution that dominated twentieth century biology, and even change how we think about human nature itself.

In spite of how important this research is, behavioral epigenetics is still relatively unknown to non-biologists. The Developing Genome is an introduction to this exciting new discipline; it will allow readers without a background in biology to learn about this work and its revolutionary implications.
