Discovering the right epigenetic state often pre-defines pharmacological use and efficacy. So it’s best to know this upfront via fast, reliable and cost saving bio-informatic approaches.
The epigenome consists of a variety of epigenetic modifications of the genetic material of a cell such as DNA methylation and histone modifications. This explains why the study of the epigenome has been gaining importance in biotech and pharma over the past years. The applications used to generate the complex data are for example bisulfite sequencing and ChIP-sequencing.
