REQUIRED for Essential HOMe/HOPe Course completion. The enrollment prerequisite is the "Certificate of Module Completion in Clinical Metabolomics."
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
This lesson provides: The HOMe/HOPe perspective, Definitions. Basic Mechanisms, and Implications in Human Health.
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.
