DNA Methylation Patterns in Crassostrea gigas

Poster presented at the NSA conference in Nashville in 2013.  This research uses the Pacific Oyster as a model organism to characterize the distribution and identify potential functions of DNA methylation.  We examined genome-wide methylation patterns to elucidate the mechanisms by which DNA methylation impacts transcriptional processes.
