CEP: September 2018

The epigenome is composed of modifications to DNA that determine which genes of the genome are expressed or suppressed without changing the DNA sequence. While your genome is fixed, your epigenome is dynamic and flexible and responds to environmental stimuli. Gaining a complete understanding of epigenetics is necessary to control genetic behavior. Read more in this month's special section on epigenetics. Other topics in this issue include: distillation tower turnarounds and critical issues.

Editorial

Write Emails Others Will Love

I have a love-hate relationship with email. What I love: I can communicate at a time that is convenient for me; I can think about what I want to say before I say it; I can share information with multiple people at the same time; I have a record of what was communicated. My list of hates is probably the same as yours, and in the interest of space and keeping this positive...
