20 January 2012

Learn about the epigenetic role of 5-hmC - a modified form of cytosine for switching genes on and off in this research article.

Significant differences were observed, and results showed that 5-hmC distribution is tissue dependent with a change in abundance in diseased states such as colorectal cancer.
