Telemedicine has gained a stable place among the vast varieties of medical branches in contemporary health care services. Clinical Genetics, on the other hand, has always been a cornerstone for high-quality medical practice especially with the evidenced possibilities of the specialized genetic counselling. It is of general public interest the information about the current developments in the field of Genetics and Epigenetics to be properly managed. One of the main issues in this regard is the information about newly evolving epigenetic therapies to be correctly and timely transferred from the research laboratories and clinical physicians to the social workers and patients. The possibilities of Telemedicine could be exploited in an approach which can be termed Tele-epigenetics. As a relatively new field of human knowledge epigenetic principles and mechanisms will require specific tasks to be fulfilled for the creation of Tele-epigenetics. Generally, like in Telemedicine the field of Tele-epigenetics could include fast and short online consultations on epigenetic therapies, treatments and possibilities via consultation through electronic and mobile devices.
