  The term “epigenetic” was introduced by Conrad Waddington in the early 1940s who have suggested the involvement of external agents in the modulation of the individuals' epigenotype. Since then, several studies have benefited and strengthened with this knowledge. Among them, we can mention the enormous progress of evolutionary studies, developmental biology, and cancer research, which have broken enormous barriers, explaining phenotypes not caused by Mendelian inheritance.
