Abstract

Sequencing of genomes, including that of humans, has revolutionized our understanding of genome organization and accelerated the hunt for disease-causing mutations. New studies by the Human Epigenome Project (HEP) now highlight the importance and complexity of cytosine DNA methylation in tissue-specific regulation of gene expression.
