Epigenomics and Epigenetics

Genetics refers to the study of genes, genetic variation, and heredity in living organisms. It is mainly considered a field of biology but intersects frequently with many other life sciences and is strongly linked with the study of information systems. Epigenetics refers to the study of effect on gene activity and expression by chromosomal changes and also heritable phenotypic change that doesn’t come from modification of a genome.

Epigenomics is the study of the complete set of epigenetic modifications on the genetic material of a cell, known as the epigenome. The field is analogous to genomics and proteomics, which are the study of the genome and proteome of a cell.
