Epigenetic Regulation

A recent article in the American Journal of Human Genetics explored the connection between lincRNA (large intergenic noncoding regions) and epigenetic regulation.  They found that methylation in gene regulation regions had effects similar to the effects of protein coding genes.  They also found correlation between methylation and expression, although both positive and negative correlation was observed.
