  • Hernando Herráez, Irene, 1985-; García Pérez, Raquel, 1989-; Sharp, Andrew J.; Marquès i Bonet, Tomàs, 1975- (Public Library of Science (PLoS), 2015)
    A fundamental initiative for evolutionary biologists is to understand the molecular basis underlying phenotypic diversity. A long-standing hypothesis states that species-specific traits may be explained by differences in ...
  • Hernando Herráez, Irene, 1985-; Prado Martínez, Javier, 1987-; Garg, Paras; Fernández Callejo, Marcos; Heyn, Holger; Hvilsom, Christina; Navarro i Cuartiellas, Arcadi, 1969-; Esteller, Manel; Sharp, Andrew J.; Marquès i Bonet, Tomàs, 1975- (Public Library of Science (PLoS), 2013)
    DNA methylation is an epigenetic modification involved in regulatory processes such as cell differentiation during development, X-chromosome inactivation, genomic imprinting and susceptibility to complex disease. However, ...

    The trisomy of human chromosome 21 (Hsa21), which causes Down syndrome (DS), is the most common viable human aneuploidy. In contrast to trisomy, the complete monosomy (M21) of Hsa21 is lethal, and only partial monosomy or ...
  • Quilez Oliete, Javier; Guilmatre, Audrey; Garg, Paras; Highnam, Gareth; Gymrek, Melissa; Erlich, Yaniv; Joshi, Ricky S.; Mittelman, David; Sharp, Andrew J. (Oxford University Press, 2016)
    Despite representing an important source of genetic variation, tandem repeats (TRs) remain poorly studied due to technical difficulties. We hypothesized that TRs can operate as expression (eQTLs) and methylation (mQTLs) ...
  • Sonay, Tugce Bilgin; Carvalho, Tiago Loureiro de, 1987-; Robinson, Mark D.; Greminger, Maja P.; Krützen, Michael; Comas, David, 1969-; Highnam, Gareth; Mittelman, David; Sharp, Andrew J.; Marquès i Bonet, Tomàs, 1975-; Wagner, Andreas (Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press (CSHL Press), 2015)
    Tandem repeats (TRs) are stretches of DNA that are highly variable in length and mutate rapidly. They are thus an important source of genetic variation. This variation is highly informative for population and conservation ...

    Despite the increasing knowledge about DNA methylation, the understanding of human epigenome evolution is in its infancy. Using whole genome bisulfite sequencing we identified hundreds of differentially methylated regions ...
