Abstract

Paramutation is an allelic interaction that results in meiotically heritable changes in gene expression. Until recently, the few documented cases in higher plants seemed unusual and rare. This perception is rapidly fading because of the discovery of related examples and the growing recognition of epigenetic changes in a wide variety of biological systems.
