Abstract

Genetic studies have been well established for identifying sequence variants associated with phenotypes. With the expanding field of epigenetics, and the growing understanding of epigenetic regulation of gene expression, similar studies can be undertaken to also define associations between epigenetic variation and phenotypes. Of particular interest are imprinted genes, which have parent-of-origin specific regulation and expression, and are key regulators of early development. Herein, we describe methods for examining epigenetic regulation by the two major hallmarks of imprinted genes: differentially methylated regions (DMRs), regulatory DNA sequences with allele specific methylation; and monoallelic expression, the silencing and transcription of opposite alleles in a parent-of-origin specific manner.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 04 November 2015.
All research outputs
#3,097,729
of 6,532,138 outputs
Outputs from Methods in molecular biology
#1,404
of 4,665 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#112,810
of 209,371 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Methods in molecular biology
#114
of 352 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 6,532,138 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 29th percentile – i.e., 29% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 4,665 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 1.5. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 55% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 209,371 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 36th percentile – i.e., 36% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 352 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 57% of its contemporaries.
