Nothing. Read my answer to Eddi about deck of cards. Recessive and dominant Genes?
In epi-Genetics you can read about what can interact with these Genes.
I think this has nothing to do with macro-eveolution. "A human is a human".

Again... nothing to do with macroevolution.
It is more like what possibilities that exict WITHIN a specie.

Evolution can be put like this: MUTATIONS + NATURAL SELECTION + TIME= NEW MORFOLOGICAL TRAITS OR NEW SPECIES.
Darwin thought that natural selction was the driving force. Today, all evolution starts with a change in the DNA information. Presumably mutations, that is error in copying DNA-information ONTO the producing system. It is impossible to proof that error in copying can release enhanced information, leading to new species,
