... of DNA. This view effectively wrote development out of evolutionary biology. However, many molecular and developmental biologists now understand that phenotypes – anatomical, physiological, and behavioral traits – are not determined by genes (i.e., DNA segments) alone; instead, they emerge epigenetically...

...Peter T. Saunders The word “epigenetics” originally meant the study of everything that happens between genotype and phenotype. It is now generally used in a much narrower sense, referring only to processes such as gene regulation that occur entirely within the genome. This very much limits its...

... within the contemporary field of epigenetics. However, the field has yet to fully extricate itself from reductionist tendencies in its conceptualization of developmental relations. Epigenetics today still routinely promotes both a reductionist privileging of molecular over molar levels of explanation...
