In PNAS this week: transcriptional patterns in breast cancer cell lines, study of non-CG methylation, and more.
Researchers showed in a new study that patterns of methylation co-occuring at different sites could help distinguish cancer DNA in the blood, and mark its original source in body.
An epigenetic analysis showed that the tumors all shared a certain DNA methylation signature, but that methylation patterns varied between samples.
Researchers analyzed cytosine methylation profiles for 34 angiosperm plants, considering methylation levels and distribution across flowering plant families.
