It is now apparent that an understanding of epigentic mechanisms such as DNA methylation is essential to providing insights to the control of cell differentiation as well as the development of a number genetic diseases and cancer.
In a study published in science the authors describe a role for RNAi dependent mechanism in the protection of transgenerational loss of DNA methylation in Arabidopsis.
