DNA Methylation Influences Replication and Genome Organization
A study links the loss of DNA methylation across the genome—as is common in cancer—to the disruption of the 3-D compartments that organize the genome and to the timing of DNA replication.

DNA Damage Linked to Brain Overgrowth in Autism
Abby Olena | Feb 5, 2020
Cell lines from individuals with macrocephalic autism spectrum disorder have an increased number of double-strand breaks in the DNA of long neural genes.
Cancer Researcher, Former AACR President Dies
Kerry Grens | Nov 13, 2017

The Role of DNA Base Modifications
Skirmantas Kriaucionis | Sep 1, 2017
Researchers are just beginning to scratch the surface of how several newly recognized epigenetic changes function in the genome.
Telomere Basics
Rodrigo Calado and Neal Young | May 1, 2012
Telomeres are repetitive, noncoding sequences that cap the ends of linear chromosomes. They consist of hexameric nucleotide sequences (TTAGGG in humans) repeated hundreds to thousands of times.
