Identification of a CpG island methylator phenotype that defines a distinct subgroup of glioma.
We have profiled promoter DNA methylation alterations in 272 glioblastoma tumors in the context of The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA). We found that a distinct subset of samples displays concertedExpand

Regions of focal DNA hypermethylation and long-range hypomethylation in colorectal cancer coincide with nuclear lamina–associated domains
Extensive changes in DNA methylation are common in cancer and may contribute to oncogenesis through transcriptional silencing of tumor-suppressor genes. Genome-scale studies have yielded importantExpand

Global analysis of patterns of gene expression during Drosophila embryogenesis
BackgroundCell and tissue specific gene expression is a defining feature of embryonic development in multi-cellular organisms. However, the range of gene expression patterns, the extent of theExpand

Genome-wide mapping of nucleosome positioning and DNA methylation within individual DNA molecules.
DNA methylation and nucleosome positioning work together to generate chromatin structures that regulate gene expression. Nucleosomes are typically mapped using nuclease digestion requiringExpand
