Analyzing and Interpreting DNA Methylation Data

Are you interested in studying DNA methylation? For example as an epigenetic biomarker for cancer diagnostics and therapy optimization, or in order to dissect the epigenetic basis of common diseases by epigenome-wide association studies?

The following video talk by BSF coordinator Dr. Christoph Bock provides an introduction into the many opportunities and approaches for studying DNA methylation. It is in part based on a recent paper on this topic (Bock 2012 Nature Reviews Genetics), and it also provides a perspective of how DNA methylation data will be able to complement (and in part supersede) mutation-based and expression-based biomarkers in cancer research.
