In science:

Developmental switches actively transduce environmental information into epigenetically heritable forms (Griffiths, 2001).
The transmission sense of information
Because natural selection operates on heritable variation, it acts upon some components of the developmental matrix differently than others.
The transmission sense of information
To better understand the role of natural selection it helps to expand Figure 2 somewhat. (For simplicity we retain our focus on the genes as transmitted elements, but one could extend this to include other heritable structures).
The transmission sense of information
Concretely, it is shown that the clustering coefficient is one of those heritable network metrics.
Generating Scale-free Networks with Adjustable Clustering Coefficient Via Random Walks
Mutation rates can be increased in a heritable manner through loss-of-function mutations in polymerase (enzymes that weave DNA or RNA strands) or in mismatch repair genes.
Biological Evolution and Statistical Physics
Apart from heritable mutators, bacterial populations may also contain transient mutators that have an increased mutation rate only for one or two generations.
Biological Evolution and Statistical Physics
This can for instance happen if males come in different colours, and if different females have a heritable preference for males of different colours.
Biological Evolution and Statistical Physics
Recently, it was found that a protein involved in translation termination in yeast cells can switch heritably to a different form (called prion), inducing new phenotypic states [247].
Biological Evolution and Statistical Physics

We are currently exploring several related directions, such as measuring heritability in the presence of possible confounding by using multiple random effects.
An efficient group test for genetic markers that handles confounding
In particular, we partition the variance into residual noise, confounding variance, and polygenic signal variance, much as we have done here, except for the purposes of estimating heritability.
