Although central to many studies of phenotypic variation and disease susceptibility, characterizing the genetic architecture of complex traits has been unexpectedly difficult.  ...  Although fine-mapping reduced the genomic intervals and gene content of these QTLs over 3000-fold, the average phenotypic effect on body weight was reduced less than threefold, highlighting the "fractal  ...  The genetic architecture of complex traits and discovery of the underlying genes is fundamental to studies of phenotypic variation and disease risk.  ...

2018 Neuroscience and Biobehavioral Reviews  
We review the evidence for the effects of PS on fetal programming of the HPA axis and the ANS.  ...  This process of 'fetal programming' is mediated by the effects of the prenatal experience on the developing hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis and autonomic nervous system (ANS).  ...  Many studies showed detrimental acute and transgenerational effects on neurodevelopment and HPA axis responsiveness to stress.  ...

RNA-guided mutagenic enzymes may therefore "Lamarkianly" generate single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNP) and gene copy number variations (CNV), as well as transposon transposition and chromosomal translocations  ...  Non-random genome editing mechanisms represent tools of evolvability leading to organismal adaptation including transgenerational non-Mendelian gene transmission or to death of environmentally inadequate  ...  Altogether, these mechanisms produce both epigenetic and genetic variations that yield a range of environmentally induced phenotypes (phenotypic plasticity).  ...
