Detection of Cytosine Methylation in Ancient DNA from Five Native American Populations Using Bisulfite Sequencing
(Public Library of Science, 2015)
While cytosine methylation has been widely studied in extant populations, relatively few studies have analyzed methylation in ancient DNA. Most existing studies of epigenetic marks in ancient DNA have inferred patterns of ...
To clone or not to clone: Method analysis for retrieving consensus sequences in ancient DNA samples
(Public Library of Science, 2011)
The challenges associated with the retrieval and authentication of ancient DNA (aDNA) evidence are principally due to postmortem damage which makes ancient samples particularly prone to contamination from ‘‘modern’’ DNA ...
