In genomic imprinting, one copy of a gene is silenced, leaving only one working copy (usually there are two). When two copies are activated, or two are inactivated during improper imprinting (i. e. two maternal copies, or two paternal copies), this can result in many disorders.*

Databases are a great place to search for individual articles from newspapers, magazines, and academic journals.
While many news and magazine articles may also be found with an internet search engine, our subscription databases can provide you with access to older articles that are not available online and other pay-per-view materials, plus additional options to refine your search. As far as scholarly articles go, databases should be your first stop! Most scholarly literature is not freely available.
Get started quickly with the search bar below, or check out some of our subject-specific recommendations.
All of Touro's books and e-books can be found by searching the catalog (above, or under the "Books & More" tab on the library homepage).
Use the advanced search to limit your results by year, campus location, or search just e-books by selecting "TC E-Books" under Location. If a print book you'd like is at a different campus, learn how to request it.
The items below are just a sampling of the many titles available:
