NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – A team from Spain and the US has used a combination of whole-genome bisulfite sequencing and array-based analyses to begin characterizing epigenetic patterns in healthy populations of white blood cells known as B cells and in B cells affected by chronic lymphocytic leu
NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Oxford Gene Technology today announced it has been awarded two grants totaling €3 million ($3.6 million) to provide genomic analysis and commercialization services for two international studies.
NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – An international team led by investigators from Sichuan Agricultural University and BGI-Shenzhen has developed a DNA methylation atlas of pig fat and muscle tissues that is expected to aid studies into the epigenetics of obesity and related conditions.
Starting from microarray methylation analyses on almost three-dozen identical twin pairs, researchers have developed a methylation-based model for predicting age to within about five years using DNA from spit samples.
By comparing DNA methylation patterns in the genomes of non-smokers, past smokers, and current smokers, German researchers have tracked down a blood coagulation gene that's differentially methylated depending on smoking behavior.
