Final Answer

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Epigenetics is usually a heritable change in the way genes are expressed, some are active and others are inactive genes. But in most cases it does not take into consideration changes to the underlying DNA is usually a change in phenotype without having to change the genotype. This usually affects how the cells have to read the genes. Epigenetic change is a regular and also a  natural occurrence which is usually influenced by some factors such as lifestyle age and environment and the state of the disease.
