DNA Methylation Code Analyzed To Identify Causes of Cancer

An illustration of the research concept that DNA methylation code can be analyzed using information theory, represented by strings of 0s and 1s. This analysis helps researchers understand the epigenetic landscape of cancer (pictured in blue) and identify genes that regulate this landscape, (noted as strings and posts underneath the blue landscape).
