Epigenetics Research

News on epigenetic profiling, DNA methylation, histone modifications, epigenetic disorders in genetics, genomics, and molecular diagnostics.

Researchers found that methylation alterations affected immune response and lipid metabolism pathways in children whose growth had been stunted.

Oxford BioDynamics will work with Italian research institute Casa Sollievo della Sofferenza to identify blood-based biomarkers of autism spectrum disorder.

Stanford University's Michael Snyder found that methylome shifts preceded spikes in his blood glucose levels, suggesting profiling could detect disease.

The team uncovered more than 200 sites in the human genome that were differentially methylated based on parent of origin, including areas linked to disease.

The thousands of differentially acetylated peaks were enriched in regions harboring genes with disease-related pathology.

Consulting company McKinsey says diagnostics companies will have to combine genomic data analysis, electronic medical records, effective reimbursement strategies, and regulatory compliance in order to win.

A new report has found that researchers in Africa are still heavily dependent on funding from organizations in the US, Europe, and China, Nature News says.

An article in The Atlantic argues that the progress being made in science isn't keeping pace with the money and time being spent on research.

In Science this week: a CRISPR screen identifies sideroflexin 1 as a requisite component of one-carbon metabolism, and more.
