Upon completing this module you receive a "Certificate of Attendance in Epigenetics." You may request to sit for the full final exam (offered in the Certification pathway) at firstname.lastname@example.org. You must make this request within 1 week of receiving your Certificate of Attendance in Epigenetics. The requirements to sit for this final exam are the "Certificate of Attendance" and the "Certificate of Completion of the Clinical Metabolomics Module" plus a $200 fee. The regular cost of this module bundled with the examination in the Essential HOMe/HOPe course is $1200, so please consider whether the regular module or audit module best suits your goals.
Week 1 - Introduction to the Epigenetics Module
This lesson provides the outline for studying the Epigenetics Module.
Week 2- Epigenetics: A Molecular Framework for HOMe/HOPe

Week 3 - DNA Methylation
This lesson focuses on DNA Methylation as one of the 3 main types of epigenetic modification.
Week 4 - Correction of Methylation Imbalances
This lesson lists strategies for correcting methylation imbalances.
Week 5 - Epigenetic Modifications: Histones and Non-Coding RNA
This lesson elucidates the two other main mechanisms for epigenetic modification, aside from DNA methylation which has been discussed in an earlier lesson.
Week 6 - Epigenomic Effects of Diet, Aging, and Lifestyle
This lesson demonstrates the effects of diet, aging, and lifestyle on the epigenome. It includes a discussion of epigenetic clocks and aging.
Week 7 - Epigenetics Module Final Assessment
This is the final examination of the Epigenetics Module. You have 1 week with 2 chances to pass it. If you pass it, you will be awarded your "Certificate of Completion of the Epigenetics Module of the Basic HOMe/HOPe Course." If you don't you will have to re-enroll in the module.
