A few decades ago, an important finding caused a paradigm shift in cancer genetics. Studies reported that key events in cancer initiation and progression can occur regardless of the underlying DNA. A field then emerged to curb cancer via epigenetics, the study of heritable changes in gene expression that occur independently of changes in the primary DNA sequence.
