This Week in Nature

In Nature Genetics this week, a Stanford University-led research team reports on the creation of human and mouse tissue-specific maps of genomic imprinting, offering new insights into the evolution of this epigenetic process. The investigators generated an atlas of imprinting across 33 mouse and 45 human developmental stages and tissues, and found that almost all imprinted genes were imprinted in early development.
