Experimental Protocol


Forty adult males from the 1958 British Birth Cohort Study were selected from SEP extremes in both early childhood and mid-adulthood. We performed genome-wide methylation analysis on blood DNA taken at 45y using MeDIP (methylated DNA immunoprecipitation) with custom-designed microarrays. Probes on the microarrays were selected to tile from -1000bp to +250bp of each transcription start site. Methylation profiles were generated in triplicate.
