MethBank - 5mdC


MethBank-Animals is a DNA methylome programming database that integrates the genome-wide single-base nucleotide methylomes of gametes and early embryos at multiple stages in different model organisms. It features the identification of differentially methylated promoters (DMPs) between different developmental stages and visualization of single-base resolution DNA methylomes. Ongoing efforts are focused on incorporation of methylomes and related data from more organisms, providing an important resource for the epigenetic and developmental studies.
