immense gene networks enable epigenetic effects of nutrient chemicals and pheromones on stochastic gene expression, which lead to species-specific changes in behavior via transgenerational epigenetic inheritance.
“You cannot predict where important discoveries will be. The only thing you can do is follow your instinct.”
the epigenetic effects of these modifications on sexual orientation and associated behaviors in a unicellular organism were known 16 years ago… why do they now appear to show up only in the behavior of the honeybee model organism?
This is the most potent indicator of how soon the epigenetic effects of nutrient chemicals and pheromones in the honeybee model organism will be extended to the role they play in human health and development.
