Mining the Epigenome: Microarrays for DNA Methylation

Examining the methylation profiles of biologically-relevant regions of DNA




DNA methylation of the human genome plays an important role in influencing gene expression. Methylation is an epigenetic change, because it is a stable change that affects the activity of the DNA rather than the sequence of the DNA itself. Understanding the locations where DNA methylation occurs is critical to understanding the role that epigenetics plays in health and disease.
