    because the lack of modern forensic technology that he was able to kill so many people. He knew not to leave finger prints but left DNA at almost every crime scene. DNA testing in the 1980s was relatively new and took a large sample to create a DNA profile and unlike today where the tests can be done within a day, there weren’t as many crime labs that could process the DNA. The Crime Scene investigators had a lot of evidence to process because the killing spread across the entire house. With…

    DNA is our genetic code, it is permanent and unchangeable. Epigenetics are the mechanisms that influence DNA, it is the device that inhibits or increases our gene expression. Epigenetics can be influenced by many factors, for example nutrition and stress. Although the actual makeup of our genetic code isn’t changed by these factors, the extent to which the genes are expressed can be (Rettner, 2013). Epigeneticist Moshe Szyf highlighted the ways in which different behaviors can influence…
