DNA Methylation Patterns in Crassostrea gigas

<p>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.</p> <p>___________________________________________</p> <p>This material is based upon work supported by the National Science Foundation under Grant Number 1158119.</p> <p>Any opinions, findings, and conclusions or recommendations expressed in this material are those of the author(s) and do not necessarily reflect the views of the National Science Foundation.</p>
