DNA methylation is one of the epigenetic mechanisms that controls the expression of genes. Aberrant DNA methylation is suspected to be a source in the development and progression of cancer. In this talk, I will give some background and introduce methodologies available for the genome-wide measurement of DNA methylation patterns. I will expand on the MSNP method, which uses the Affymetrix SNP-chips for this purpose using data from an ongoing project with Dr. Benjamin Tycko.
