Latest Methylation Stories
Unique DNA markings on certain genes may "predict" the risk of developing head and neck cancer.
Humans, and many other animals, have internal clocks and calendars that help them regulate behavior, physiological functions and biological processes. Scientists have extensively studied the mechanisms that inform our daily functions, known as circadian rhythms.
Chronic aggressive behavior exhibited by some boys from disadvantaged families may be due to epigenetic changes during pregnancy and early childhood.
Microbes that live in rice paddies, northern peat bogs and other previously unexpected environments are among the bacteria that can generate highly toxic methylmercury.

Even before they are born, babies accumulate changes in their DNA through a process called DNA methylation that may interfere with gene expression, and in turn, their health as they grow up.
A decade ago, gene expression seemed so straightforward: genes were either switched on or off.
Researchers at the University of British Columbia have discovered a potential new pathway to treat cancer by asking some odd questions about the size of animals.
New research has found epigenetic changes within brain cells continues well into the developmental years.
