A Cloud-Assisted Application over Apache Spark for Investigating Epigenetic Markers on DNA Genome Sequences


As an important epigenetic marker in identifying biological elements and processes in mammalian genomes, CpG islands (CGI) play significant roles in DNA methylation, gene regulation, epigenetic inheritance, gene mutation, chromosome inactivation and nuclesome retention. Investigating the CpG islands and their structures is a rigorous task because of unknown… (More)
