Epigenomic information is important in understanding how the function of the genetic sequence is implemented and regulated.  Since the epigenome is less stable than the genome, it is thought to be important in gene-environment interactions.  However, being less stable, the epignome exhibits more variablity that the genome, making epigenomic mapping inherently more complex.

Step-by-step guide to methylation analysis sample prep products

For all next-generation sequencing platforms

MagMAX FFPE DNA/RNA Ultra Kit
Designed for sequential isolation of DNA and RNA from the same formaldehyde- or paraformaldehyde-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissue sample.

PureLink Genomic DNA Mini Kit
Recommended for next generation sequencing applications requiring extraction and purification of genomic DNA samples.  Yields high-quality DNA in a single column.

For all next-generation sequencing platforms

MethylCode Bisulfite ConversionKit
Fast and easy way to convert unmethylated cytosines from a DNA sample into uracils while methylated cytosines remain unchanged. The modified DNA is ideal for PCR amplification for downstream analyses, including restriction endonuclease digestion, sequencing and microarrays.

MethylMiner Methylated DNA Conversion Kit
Enrichment & differential fractionation of dsDNA by CpG methylation density.  Increased sensitivity over antibody methods.

Cells-to-CpG Bisulfite Conversion Kit
Fast & easy conversion of unmethylated cytosines into uracils while methylated cytosines remain unchanged, starting directly from cells, tissue, blood, FFPE, or purified DNA

For all next-generation sequencing platforms
