DNA methylation is a covalent modification of DNA that plays an important role in setting gene expression programs during development. Recent evidence suggests that changes in DNA methylation patterns are involved in human disease through altering normal gene expression programming. In contrast to genetic changes aberrant DNA methylation patterns are… CONTINUE READING
