comment How many people's DNA were involved in the compilation of the reference human genome?
@Poshpaws: You may want to bring that up on Meta.

comment How many people's DNA were involved in the compilation of the reference human genome?
@GerganaVandova: If the HGP can track down RP11, or any other of the chosen donors, then they did a poor job at anonymizing the donors and might be sued for that. With Celera, who knows who might know? I'd almost bet that Venter was one of the five; I guess it may be possible to try and find out by aligning the Celera genome to the Venter genome.

@GerganaVandova: Please follow the Wikipedia link. If you want original references, have a look at References 17-21.

@Daniel Standage: I have expanded my solution to hopefully better address your point.

comment Transmission of epigenetic regulation through surrogate mother
X inactivation is not due to DNA methylation but does impact gene regulation without touching the DNA sequence. Also, the inheritance of the location of the centromere would not fall under your definition, so what kind of mark would that be?
