Biologists first observed “transgenerational epigenetic inheritance” in plants. But, over the past few years, evidence has accumulated showing that the phenomenon also occurs in rodents and humans.
The clover genome is very complicated and even though many scientists have tried to find the exact genes responsible for the four-leaf mutation, they haven’t been identified as of yet.
Can we trust your published qPCR data?
The pressure to publish is causing shortcuts which result in misleading papers being published.
The only way to confirm heteropaternal superfecundation in human twins is genetic testing.
