DNA methylation is crucially important for an organism to show normal development. Anomalies in DNA methylation process are known to cause certain frequently observed diseases; such as cancer and diabetes. For this reason, analysis of DNA methylation and its effects on gene regulation is one of the important tasks in disease management and prevention. It is possible to perform DNA methylation analysis using both microarray and next generation sequencing techniques.
Epigenetiks offers both next generation sequencing based and microarray based DNA methylation analysis services depending on the nature of your problem.
