A McGill University-led team explores genetic and environmental impact on human methylome variation in dozens of adipose tissue and blood samples from identical or non-identical twins. In an effort to characterize methylation patterns at sites with or without high levels of cytosine and guanine bases, the researchers did whole-genome bisulfite sequencing on adipose samples from seven pairs of identical twins, six non-identical twin pairs, and eight non-twin individuals.
