Genome-wide mouse study yields link to human leukemia

...ature.com/ng/. "This is the first time anyone has examined methylation in leukemia on a genome-wide basis in a mouse, and the findings offer important implications for patient care, since we know that methylation, which alters gene function, can be reversed," says Christoph Plass, senior co-author and a memb...

NYU Study Reveals How Brain's Immune System Fights Viral Encephalitis
