The result indicated that ethanol tolerance was likely acquired through epigenetic changes rather than DNA mutation. The traits acquired through DNA mutation should not disappear quickly because the natural spontaneous mutation rate is not always high and specific, whereas the traits acquired through H3K4 tri-methylation change often show instability along with the changes of the environment.
