DNA modifications data analysis software tools
Whole genome DNA methylation detection is one of the most important part of epigenetics research. It is supposed to have a great effect on cancers and tumors, and even be involved in the senility of human. In addition, it is believed that in medical aspects, DNA methylation may have a strong relationship with diabetes and immunological diseases (Jeong et al., 2014; Hackett et al., 2013; Duthie, 2011).
