[…] regions. We defined a ‘gene region’ to encompass 3000 bp upstream of the first exon genomic position through 500 bp downstream of the last exon genomic position ( To assess the biological variability, edgeR was used to identify H3K9me1-enriched regions that exhibited significant differences in control as compared with postdependent samples (n = 4) […]
