Epigenetic regulation of gene expression: “Lick your rats”

This week, you are learning about gene expression and regulation. This assignment will ask you apply that knowledge to an experiment performed in 2004 by researchers at McGill University. The reference can be seen below:

Weaver I, Cervoni N, Champagne FA, D’Alessio AC, Sharma S, Seckl JR, Dymov S, Szyf M, Meaney M. 2004. Epigenetic programming by maternal behavior. Nature Neuroscience. 7: 847-854.

Please note: There are two pages to this assignment.
