It is known that the dinucleotide CpG is signicantly underrepresented in genomic sequences of organisms which extensively methylate their DNA[1]. In these species, most cytosine bases of CpG dinucleotides are found to be methylated and this extensive CpG methylation is thought to have caused the depletion of the dinucleotide over the course of evolution[2].(More)
