The epigenome encompasses chemical modifications to DNA and histone proteins, chromatin accessibility, and higher-order DNA organization. Its profound effect on gene regulation, and consequently development and pathogenesis, is only beginning to be understood. Although epigenetic modifications do not alter the nucleic acid sequence itself, sequencing-based techniques can detect them indirectly.
As a leading provider of next generation sequencing (NGS), Azenta Life Sciences, formerly GENEWIZ offers a suite of powerful NGS solutions, including whole genome bisulfite sequencing (WGBS), to rapidly and thoroughly analyze the epigenome of many organisms.
