Effects of Male Obesity in Sperm DNA and Offspring Health

The production of numerous functional proteins inside your cell comes about thanks to DNA, allowing scientists to perform genealogical tests or DNA tests while pregnant. The bases that are the constituents of your DNA – A, C, G, and T – come in specific sequences known as genes, allowing for the production of essential-for-life proteins. But, how exactly are these genes read by cells? This is the cornerstone of epigenetics.
