Epigenetics and the beta cell

Epigenetics – chemical modifications of DNA or histones, which affect gene expression – have been linked to several diseases, including diabetes. This module explores our growing understanding of the association between type 2 diabetes and epigenetic modifications in the beta cell, which could in turn pave the way for biomarkers and therapies to support better diabetes management.
