Febrero de 2001, las prestigiosas publicaciones especializadas ‘Nature' y 'Science' se hacían eco del que podría ser catalogado como uno de los grandes proyectos biomédicos de nuestra era, la elaboración del mapa del genoma humano. Febrero de 2015, nuevamente la revista ‘Nature', aunque con bastante menos revuelo fuera del entorno biológico y médico, publica otro de los grandes hitos en el campo, descifrar el epigenoma.
