    Altered chromatin compaction and histone methylation drive non-additive gene expression in an interspecific Arabidopsis hybrid

    The merging of two diverged genomes can result in hybrid offspring that phenotypically differ greatly from both parents. In plants, interspecific hybridization plays important roles in evolution and speciation...

    Stable inheritance of DNA methylation allows creation of epigenotype maps and the study of epiallele inheritance patterns in the absence of genetic variation

    Differences in DNA methylation can arise as epialleles, which are loci that differ in chromatin state and are inherited over generations. Epialleles offer an additional source of variation that can affect phen...

    A tandem simulation framework for predicting mapping quality

    Read alignment is the first step in most sequencing data analyses. Because a read’s point of origin can be ambiguous, aligners report a mapping quality, which is the probability that the reported alignment is ...

    stageR: a general stage-wise method for controlling the gene-level false discovery rate in differential expression and differential transcript usage

    RNA sequencing studies with complex designs and transcript-resolution analyses involve multiple hypotheses per gene; however, conventional approaches fail to control the false discovery rate (FDR) at gene leve...

    Large scale genomic reorganization of topological domains at the HoxD locus

    The transcriptional activation of HoxD genes during mammalian limb development involves dynamic interactions with two topologically associating domains (TADs) flanking the HoxD cluster. In particular, the activat...

    A novel mechanism for variable phenotypic expressivity in Mendelian diseases uncovered by an AU-rich element (ARE)-creating mutation

    Variable expressivity is a well-known phenomenon in which patients with mutations in one gene display varying degrees of clinical severity, potentially displaying only subsets of the clinical manifestations as...

    Population and allelic variation of A-to-I RNA editing in human transcriptomes

    A-to-I RNA editing is an important step in RNA processing in which specific adenosines in some RNA molecules are post-transcriptionally modified to inosines. RNA editing has emerged as a widespread mechanism f...
