Methylation meets genomics

The methylome—a neologism that describes the complete set of DNA methylation modifications of a cell—has its own life cycle, and alterations in the methylome may be linked to aging and cancer, as well as polymorphic variation in populations. A study of the methylome in embryonic fibroblasts further underscores the potent effect of p53 expression.
