Title: How are epigenetics and DNA methylation involved in cancer?

To get the low-down on the mysteries of methylation I spoke to one of the
leading experts in the field - Professor Peter Jones.

Title: How many kinds of epigenetic markers are there?
Post by: evan_au on 16/08/2015 06:16:49
The Naked Genetics podcast carried a story about methylation as an epigenetic marker. A later story in the same episode on Rett's syndrome implied that phosphorylation is an epigenetic maker. I also heard a geneticist talking about acetylation of DNA. Could the podcast address how these epigenetic markers relate to each other, and are there any more?
