The genetic puppeteer
by David White
Back in 2005 a group of researchers published a landmark study on a question that has long puzzled geneticists: why arent identical twins
identical? Considering that they have the same DNA sequence in each of their cells, it seems a bit strange that they often possess a number of physical differences, such as different fingerprints, and different susceptibilities to disease. This raises the question: if two people can have identical DNA sequences and yet be so different, is there more to our genetic blueprint than just DNA?...

Heredity isn’t everything.
Don’t have my ping list handy. Any of you guys happen to have a ping list handy?
All the best—GGG
Environment definitely has something to do with it. As it turns out, they are discovering codes upon codes upon codes above the genetic code.
I work in a cancer research lab and we do a lot of epigenetics work! Thanks for posting this it is a good, informative read!
Not exactly the same thing, but definitely related:

As you get older, who you are gets written on your face.
Heredity isnt everything.<<
It apparently starts in the pre-birth environment - the finger prints are apparently extremely similar but slightly different. Apparently difference in nutrition, womb position and blood pressure have slight effects on fingertip growth rate and thus cause tiny fingerprint differences.
Later in life environmental differences are even bigger - and things like lines in the face and body weight can diverge even more.
Fascinating topic though.
Because creationism predicted they would.
Very true. And, as it turns out, part of what is written on your face is controlled by the epigenetic code.
Ping to another layer of complexity.
Lots of reasons... environmental stresses (weather, sun exposure, work activity), physiological stresses (sickness, exposure to toxins, epigenetics, etc.

For some reason your vid isn’t playing. Is there a different link to the same.
Nope...I think you just need to right-click on it and “Save As...” then watch it off of your hard drive. I guess it doesn’t stream well in your browser.
What’s your OS and browser?
