Tmax
Time to peak plasma concentration
Cmax
Peak concentration of drug plasma level
AUC
Area under the curve in a plot of plasma concentration vs. time. In other words, the total amount of drug absorbed by the body.
Tlag
Absorbtion lag time
Half-life
time taken for 1/2 the quantity of a drug to be metabolized
Pearson product-moment correlation coefficient (r)
Measures the degree to which the relationship between two independent variables is described by a straight line
Lamarkism
A theory of biological evolution holding that species evolve by the inheritance of traits acquired or modified through the use or disuse of body parts.
2 main sources of epigenetic variation
1. Histones (the proteins that DNA are wrapped around)
2. Methylation of cytosine in DNA
Properties of epigenetic variation (where they occur, what affects them, transmission to offspring.)
-epigenetic fingerprint can be different in different tissues (methylation of a particular cytosine in brain tissue, but not blood cells).

-Can be affected by environmental factors (diet, sun exposure, etc.)

-Evidence that some of these epigenetic properties are passed down to offspring
Parthenogenesis
A form of reproduction in which an unfertilized egg develops into a new individual, occurring commonly among insects and certain other arthropods
