An ambitious EC-funded research initiative on epigenetics advancing towards systems biology 31

Latest asked questions

  • Do methyl groups that are attached to DNA get copied in DNA replication?

    Yes they do! And this ability of methyl groups to be copied at each round of DNA replication is what makes DNA methylation “epigenetics”: the information carried by these methyl groups is…

  • How do epigenetics bypass reprogamming on imprinted genes?

    Well, it depends on which “reprogramming” you think. There are two waves of reprogramming occurring in mammals: one in the precursors of the future oocytes and spermatozoa (germline reprogramming)…
