In an epigenome-wide association study of depression, the researchers tied DNA methylation to disease symptoms and suggested a role for axon guidance disruption.

Researchers examined DNA methylation and chromatin accessibility in preimplantation embryos using single-cell chromatin overall omic-scale landscape sequencing.

Researchers found that individuals with unexplained neurodevelopmental disorders and congenital anomalies had an enrichment of de novo epivariations.

Sometimes genetic tests give inconclusive results and provide little reassurance to patients, the Associated Press reports.
