Abstract

Dates: 1 - 5 June 2015
Exhibition in conjunction with the Wellcome Trust-Waddington Symposium: “EpiGenetics - in dialogue with the genome” at University of Edinburgh

An exhibition of print based works by artist Paul Liam Harrison that explore aspects of Epigenetics - currently an expanding field of biomedical research relating to changes in gene expression, phenotype and heredity as a result of external or environmental factors. The term, an adaptation of Aristotle’s theory of Epigensis, was initially coined by developmental biologist and philosopher C.H. Waddington in 1942 to describe how genes might differentiate through interaction with their environment. This exhibition will coincide with a significant scientific meeting taking place at Edinburgh’s Dynamic Earth titled ‘The Wellcome Trust Waddington Symposium: Epigenetics in dialogue with the Genome’.
