A novel approach for identifying candidate imprinted genes through sequence analysis of imprinted and control genes

Abstract

Through the sequence analysis of 27 imprinted human genes and a set of 100 control genes we have developed a novel approach for identifying candidate imprinted genes based on the differences in sequence composition observed. The imprinted genes were found to be associated with significantly reduced numbers of short interspersed transposable element (SINE… (More)
