Darwin taught that it takes many generations for a genome to evolve. Reserachers are finding that it takes only the addition of a methyl group to change an epigenome. It is important to remember that epigenetic changes are not evolution. They do not change DNA but represent a biological response to an environmental stressor. That response may be inherited through many generations via epigenetic marks, but if the environmental pressure is removed, the epigenetic marks will eventually fade, and the DNA code will - over time - begin to revert to its original programming. Epigenetics is perhaps the most important discovery since the gene.
