    Abstract

    Insect epigenetics must confront the remarkable diversity of epigenomic systems in various lineages and use mechanistic approaches to move beyond vague functional explanations based on predictions and inferences. To accelerate progress, what is required now is a convergence of genomic data with biochemical and single-cell-type analyses in selected species representing contrasting evolutionary solutions in epigenetics.
