Functional annotation of the human brain methylome identifies tissue-specific epigenetic variation across brain and blood
Davies, Matthew N.
Harris, R. Alan
Dynamic changes to the epigenome play a critical role in establishing and maintaining cellular phenotype during differentiation, but little is known about the normal methylomic differences that occur between functionally distinct areas of the brain. We characterized intra- and inter-individual methylomic variation across whole blood and multiple regions of the brain from multiple donors.
