ready MethylomeDB

General Information
This resource details DNA methylation profiles in human and mouse brain. This database includes genome-wide DNA methylation profiles for human and mouse brains. The DNA methylation profiles were generated by Methylation Mapping Analysis by Paired-end Sequencing (Methyl-MAPS) method and analyzed by Methyl-Analyzer software package. The methylation profiles cover over 80% CpG dinucleotides in human and mouse brains in single-CpG resolution. The integrated genome browser (modified from UCSC Genome Browser allows users to browse DNA methylation profiles in specific genomic loci, to search specific methylation patterns, and to compare methylation patterns between individual samples.
