    Genome-wide analysis of DNA methylation in hypothalamus and ovary of Capra hircus

    DNA methylation is a frequently studied epigenetic modification due to its role in regulating gene expression and hence in biological processes and in determining phenotypic plasticity in organisms. Rudimentar...
