Epigenetic modification of plant gene and transposon activity, which correlates with their methylation, is often heritable over many generations. Such heritable properties allow conventional genetic linkage analysis to identify the sequences affected in epigenetic variants. Machinery controlling the establishment of the epigenetic state and role of the epigenetic controls in plant development are also discussed.
