Regional DNA methylation differences between humans and chimpanzees are associated with genetic changes, transcriptional divergence and disease genes


Changes in gene expression have been proposed to have an important role in the evolutionary changes in phenotypes. Interspecific changes in gene expression can result not only from genetic changes in regulatory regions but also from epigenetic changes in such regions. Here we report the identification of genomic regions showing differences in DNA… (More)
