Epigenetics is the study of heritable changes in gene activity caused by mechanisms other than DNA sequence changes. Epigenetic analysis research can involve studying alterations in DNA methylation, DNA-protein interactions, chromatin accessibility, histone modifications, and more.
Illumina offers a broad portfolio of next-generation sequencing (NGS)- and array-based epigenetic analysis tools that provide robust, simple-to-use, and cost-efficient solutions for studying these epigenetic modifications and their impact on gene regulation. By working with leading epigenomics experts, Illumina ensures its solutions meet the field's rapidly evolving needs.

In this wide-ranging interview, Dr. Kathleen C. Barnes describes her work as a genetic epidemiologist, how COVID-19 impacted her research plans, and how methylation arrays add another dimension to the study of infectious diseases.Read Article
In plants, chromatin accessibility – the primary mark of regulatory DNA – is relatively static across tissues and conditions. This scarcity of accessible sites that are dynamic or tissue-specific may be due in part to tissue heterogeneity in previous bulk studies.
Join us for this webinar on single-cell ATAC-Seq of Arabidopsis thaliana. The speakers discuss an analytical framework to infer the regulatory networks that govern plant development.View Webinar
Studies of epigenetic alterations in cancer, such as aberrant methylation and transcription factor binding, can provide insight into important tumorigenic pathways. Learn more about epigenetic changes in cancer.
Genome-wide methylation profiling can help researchers understand the mechanisms behind complex diseases. Aberrant methylation has been implicated in complex disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease and asthma. Learn more about complex disease research.
